Bike riders and Buyam Sellams of Bamenda II municipality have been encouraged to enroll their names on the voter's list ahead of the multiple elections in 2025.

In a meeting at the Bamenda II town hall, Tuesday June 18th, 2024,  Mayor Chenwi Peter highlighted that " we have crucial elections next year. We are all partners of development. Since I got into office some four years ago, we have had several exchanges. We have supported your projects of back-to-school, payment of bills to the sick, donation of food items at Christmas. This is the social contract we signed and as we are heading to the polls next year, we need each other's support." Mayor Chenwi Peter highlighted.

The bike riders led by their President Ndi Mayenin saluted the Mayor for his fatherly attitude expressed to them this far. 

"Since his election into office, he stood by us in our darkest moments and we promised him that we shall enroll massively on the electoral list." A similar assurance was made by the President of the Buyam Sellams, Madam Gladys Sie.

The meeting between bike riders, Buyam Sellams and the Mayor comes few weeks after the Senior Divisional officer for Mezam banned the circulation of bikes from dusk to dawn. According to the President of the riders, "we are responsible people. Our work is only to carry people from place to place. This decision seriously affects us and we are pleading with the Administration of Mezam to have a rethink." Ndi said.

The ban has had a boomerang effect as multiple cars have been burnt in the wake of the decision.

Bamenda II Mayor salutes the bike riders for respecting the decision of the administration. "I am very pleased that you have respected the decision of the SDO. I know how responsible and organized the bike riders of the Municipality are. I wish to encourage you all to stay vigilant and ensure that trouble makers from elsewhere don't intrude into your midst and spoil your good image." Mayor Chenwi said.
