By Chris Mbunwe
The newly appointed First Secretary-General to the City of Bamenda, Mrs Annabela Suly Kwafila Sevesen, was on Wednesday, May 5, installed at the esplanade of the city council at Musang neighbourhood in Bamenda.
In his installation speech, the Senior Divisional Officer, SDO for Mezam, Mr Simo Emile Mooh, assured the new Secretary-General that despite taking functions at the most delicate period of the socio-political upheavals and COVID-19, her rich career will enable her to succeed.
“While the post of the city Mayor to the Bamenda City Council remains a political post, you as the Secretary-General, your role is the day-to-day running of this council for the interest of the population. Our collaboration, I must assure you will be total” Simo Emile.
Northwest Governor, Adolphe Lele L’afrique, lauded the achievements of the City Mayor to the Bamenda council Paul Achobong, for the shortest time that he has been at the helm of that council and urged him to continue. The City Council had taken the opportunity to present some newly acquired Seria car acquired through the aid of FEICOM. The Council presented hard-working council workers whom Mayor Achobong, said have distinguished themselves in working so hard for the council to have these achievements, one of them being Mr Jacob Nwanchang Ngoh, the chief planner at the city council.
Northwest Governor Lele, said peace begins from home and requested that the population and elites of the Northwest should be able to call on their children who have refused to drop their guns against the government to do so and return home for reintegration.
The new Secretary-General, Mrs Annabela Suly said she will count on the collaboration of all the council workers to succeed in her mission and vision to take the city council to another level.
Speaker after speaker, talked of Mrs Annabela Suly rich profile, given the fact that she is fresh from the ministry of decentralization and local development where she held many high positions. She is married with four children.
