The Socio-cultural and development association of people of Momo Division in the North West Region expressed gratitude to the Head of State, President Paul Biya for renewing confidence in one of them, Rose Mbah Acha, maintained as Minister Delegate at the Presidency in charge of the Supreme State Audit during the March 2 cabinet reshuffle.
The people of Momo Division in the North West Region have through their cultural association (Meta Cultural and Development Association, MECUDA) have pledged to support President Paul Biya in the upcoming presidential election. The pledge was made in Yaounde over the weekend during a “thank you” ceremony organised to express their gratitude to the Head of State for maintaining one of theirs in the March 2, 2018 government.
Apart from renewing confidence on Rose Mbah Acha, a bona fide daughter of the soil in government, MECUDA also lauded President Biya’s stewardship and numerous development projects the division has benefitted from his government. Tarred roads, schools, health facilities are some of the projects worth mentioning. President Biya has since taking over office in 1982, ensured equitable development of all localities in the country. However, the people of Momo Division just like other parts of the country are still expecting more from the Head of State. This explains why they have opted to throw their support behind him in the upcoming presidential poll through a motion of support addressed and handed to the Minister Delegate for onward transmission to the Unity Palace.
To Emmanuel Asongwe, President of Meta Cultural and Development Association, the mark of confidence bestowed on Momo Division by the President is worth applauded and reciprocated with an unflinching support. The people of Momo Division will always stand for peace and national unity, values cherished by the President of the Republic. While castigating violence perpetrated by secessionists in the area, MECUDA stands for dialogue and the living together in peace and harmony by all Cameroonians.
Momo Division with headquarters in Mbengwi, it should be noted, is linked to the Regional Headquarter Bamenda with tarred roads. Its other towns like Batibo and Widikum have an ultra-modern express trans-African highway linking Bamenda-Mamfe-Ekok in Cameroon to Enugu in Nigeria. Thus, economic activities along the stretch are booming with positive impact on the livelihood of the inhabitants who are mostly engaged in farming and petty trade. Other social amenities like schools, electricity and health facilities littered in the Division are also a pointer to President Biya’s benevolence to the people. Several other sons and daughters of the Division have occupied top government positions prominent amongst which is Ama Tutu Muna, former Minister of Arts and Culture, now member of the National Commission for the Promotion of Bilingualism and Multiculturalism. All of these gives Momo, every reason to continue supporting President Paul Biya.
