Also top on the agenda shall the election of a new national bureau of FADCA since the second mandate of the current bureau has come to an end. The election of the New Executive is very vital tote existence of FADCA. THE election is drawing particular attention from all sons and daughters of Bafanji around the world. The debate on the election of the new bureau has been more electrifying in the Bafanji citizen group. Some are of the opinion that election should be put on hold until such a time when it shall be possible to hold the General assembly in the village. Other opinions hold that delegates shall be coming from all quarters of the village. Therefore, all branches shall be fully represented for the election to go ahead as planned. The post of president seems to the most attractive in the general election with several candidates vying for the post. Prominent amongst the candidates are Mr Musi Vincent, High school teacher and Mr Tamba Rouben , founder of UB construction and petroleum.

Mr & Mrs Musi for president.

Both candidates have announced their interest to run for president in the Bafanji citizen group. They have each published their manifesto. It is incumbent upon each candidate to convince the delegates through a meaningful and feasible plan of action. However, the outgoing president, Mba Tiemuniji William has cautioned all candidates to show proof of maturity by avoiding smear campaigns and blackmailing that is plaguing partisan political campaigns. Electorates and delegates are also cautioned to exercise restraint and avoid divisive debates and to put the development of Bafanji kingdom before any personal ambition.

Mr.Rouben Tamba, candidate for President.
I am Rouben Tamba, an active FADCA member with the Bafoussam Branch, from the Tamba’s family. I’m the son of late lawyer Peziegieh Patrick Tamba from Njantang quarters, who before his demise served as President General of FADCA & President for Kumba branch. My grandfather ( Mbah Tieuh Johnson Tamba ) was a notable who served the Fon and the Bafanji community faithfully, until his death.   I’m married with two kids and have extensive experience in management. I’m the founder of UB Constructions and Petroleum Company Ltd. As a fervent Fieh Lunglue, I promise to campaign for the installment of the water project for the whole village. I will also try and do the electrification of other rural areas through our collective collaborations. I also hope to mobilize the youths by organizing youth summer cultural festivities that will be galvanized by sporting events such as football. Please trust me with your votes and I will not fail you all.   Plan of Action Getting FADCA working again. – Putting in place Serious FADCA Regional & Divisional branches which will be known by Administrative authorities in the different localities. – Set up a FADCA secretariat with up to date machines in the village (computers, laptops, two photocopy machines & a generator). – Putting FADCA at the International level with international developmental Agencies, – FADCA activities reports will be presented very after three months, with distributions to Regional & Divisional branches, – Notice board shall be mounted at strategic places in the village like Quarters & Junctions, – FADCA national bureau will every three months meet with Quarter heads in order to make assessments of projects on the ground, – For the uncompleted projects a special committee will be created with respect to abandon projects & a speedy plan activities to finalize the projects within the shortest possible time, – I shall put in place a participatory & transparent management of the Village development funds, – Digitalization of the financial reports which will be made publicly quarterly, – Creation of a FANJI COOPERATIVE CREDIT UNION.  

This is Musi Vincent, candidate for the post of president general of FADCA. I am 59yrs old. A high school teacher and school administrator. I am the son of Tieneh Leongand Menkieu Hongwie all of the blessed memory. A founding member of FADCA in which I served as Secretary general for 14yrs. In that capacity, I did much for Bafanji.  Constituted files that led to the creation of GBHS Bafanji and GTC Bafanji. Coordinated the renovation of the palace and the Fan’s funeral. Instrumental in the building/roofing of the community Hall that has now been left to rot. A Nigerian writer says “an old man cannot sit and watch she goat suffer the pains of parturition on its tether” I do not, therefore, wish to idle and see FADCA come to naught. FADCA today has no base which is dangerous. The village has developed a disenchantment for everything FADCA. This explains why for 3 years the village has virtually refused to contribute FADCA dues. FADCA must be given back to the people because it has become an elitist affair. With the experience that I have and the capacity to turn things around, I will want to take FADCA to its glorious past.

“Blest be the tie that binds our hearts in love, our fears, our hopes, our aims are one. The brief time I had with you was memorable, ... And know, When we asunder part, from the sting of death, when the grave rejoices in its victory over our mortal bodies, it gives us inward pain, but we shall still be joined in love and hope to meet again, for where is deaths sting? where grave thy Victory in a spiritual realm? If service we rendered, and purpose we met, then the pain to the mortal is great but our joy, the departed greater. After leaving this gloomy dungeon of a world, and being freed from its cares, as an ambassador of a greater spiritual kingdom, I shall surely earn the reward of the Most High, and Suprême. I triumph still as he abides with me. May God grant those feeling the pains of your departure solace and consolation. May your peace be with them. We pledge our empathy to them.”
-Victor Lue

“I am shocked to my roots to hear this deafening sad news. What happened? During one of my most desperate moments in life, he dug in and out to give me solace, notwithstanding the level of his job at the referral hospital in Douala. It is that his bulldozer gift that allowed him to knock at the doors of the highest specialists and authorities in that hospital to announce that i was his and should be given special care. He did that to many more people, natives or not. I have in my Nmbah Ta'apah Joseph. Mr Nkale, you saved my daughter with your selflessness in service, in an environment where callousness caresses death. You are not dead my brother. The wages of your goodness are right there...by god where you must rest in peace, the peace you so much merited and still merit! Haba!”
-Peter Tieh Nde

“Special mourning and consoling gospel song / Hunter's Eulogy to us mourners.
This evening as I read through eulogies or tributes from forumites about our brother Nkale, I developed cold feet. What a special person or gift to serve mankind, yet the wickedness of death can't permit such to live long. Legacy of a good person is what we have observed today. Put a smile on a face, on daily basis, impact on people as you navigate from one point to the other. No one ever gets poor for giving or helping the needy. Bro Nkale, rest in the lord and continue to do good in heaven and in your next life. It's regrettable I never had the opportunity to meet you in person but suffice to say you remain an inspiration to mankind. Thank you for your devotion and dedication to our people. Hunter”
