An Address presented by the Lord Mayor, Kumbo Council - Njong Fonyuy Donatus, during the Installation Ceremony of the MAYOR and DEPUTY MAYORS, after the 22nd July 2007 Municipal and Legislative Elections - Tobin Municipal Stadium.

 

  • The Senior Divisional Officer, Bui
  • The Divisional Officer, Kumbo Central
  • Honorable Members of Parliament
  • The President and Learned State Counsel, Kumbo High Court
  • The Divisional Delegates and Service Heads
  • His Majesty the Paramount Fon of Nso
  • Political Authorities, Religious Leaders,
    Traditional Authorities, Honorable Councillors, Kumbo Council
  • Internal and External Elite
  • Distinguished Ladies and Gentlemen

For the third time and for three consecutive mandates, the populace of Kumbo has invested their confidence in me as their mayor. You all are living witnesses to this historic event. Nothing can be so gratifying as to be part of an occasion focused towards a hopeful future. I therefore congratulate you all for making history. I welcome and thank you from my inner heart for making things happen.

On this day, when I again take the mantle of servitude and stewardship of Kumbo, I extend my salutations to the people, for once more entrusting confidence in me and my team. I sincerely appreciate my party the Social Democratic Front (SDF), and its illustrious leader, Ni John Fru Ndi, for investing us as councilors, thereby giving us the opportunity to be elected to serve the people of Kumbo. I congratulate the Senior Divisional Officer for Bui, Mr. Panjounou Daniel, who did his best to avert chaos during the elections, inspite of manipulations by some of his collaborators in the field to rig elections, thus tailoring the will of the people; which is ultimately, the will of God. Above all, I thank God Almighty for choosing us as leaders, for all authority comes from God.

I pledge my total sacrifice for the growth and development of my fatherland. I am happy with the assignment you have offered me. I know I can do a lot about your problems. I will leave no stone unturned for the interest and welfare of my people. I shall work with imagination as if this is my first Mayoral mandate, putting in place all the experience acquired over the years; I will remain as committed and available as I was at the start.  I love Kumbo and know that in the years ahead, Kumbo needs a strong person, and I am convinced that I am that person. I promise to leave Kumbo a better place than I met it. I have a strong team to work with, made up of people of quality and caliber. Together, we shall serve you with a mind and conscience full of love for the fragrance of humanity; for we know that it takes people with a good reputation to turn around and get things done. We shall be selfless, veritable servants of the people. We shall fight like Spartans for the interest and honour of the poor, the voiceless and the down trodden.

Elections have come and gone. Kumbo and its inhabitants are still here. What is required of us now is to build our society. Each and every one of us has a role to play for the growth and sustainable development of our town. Every person should do something to make a difference. We have to make a difference by not hesitating to do the things we care about. Let us show more involvement in the affairs of our land. Let all of us put our hands on deck. Let all of us get on board the Kumbo train of development. Let us put aside all partisan activities and attitudes that can obstruct our progress, be they political, cultural, religious, ethnical or what have you. It is not enough to vote, follow a politician or political party, it is more to be a citizen and demonstrate citizenship. Let all of us be part of our citizenship. I am Mayor for all, I shall work for all without fear or favour.

There comes a time in the history of a people that calls for reflection, pro-activity and positive thinking. In Kumbo, the time in NOW. Yes, we have been champions of slander, blackmail, libel, petitions and so on. All of these have taken us nowhere. On the contrary, these have contributed to regression of our society. We shall spare no efforts to eradicate these ills and nuisance of all sorts, such as rubbish writing in newspapers, intoxication of the population and any preconceptions about people which end up not to be true. Our mentality must change. Anyway, when performant and successful, there is no way you can try to please everyone, and it is pointless trying to. We have to concern ourselves with issues that will help us move forward.

We are going to work hand in gloves with the Fon of Nso.  I have enormous respect for the Fon and the people of Nso. No persons have the right to prejudice our relationship and put us at daggers drawn. All the utterances during campaigns, made in a bid to prevent me get to this stage are hereby forgiven. They are now classified as mistakes of the past. I will work very closely with my Fon and Father, for the betterment of our people and for posterity. The Fon and I both have a duty to restore the ego and pride of the Nso people, both at home and abroad. This is a task that must be done. I therefore call for unity. We need to beef up our pride and heritage with love for one another.

We must come together, we must speak together, we must work together, we must make Kumbo a better place. Kumbo is our pride, Kumbo is our passion, Kumbo we love you. Remember, that this responsibility is an obligation; for eventually we shall render account of our stewardship to God the Most High, for TO GOD BE THE GLORY.

God Bless Kumbo !!
