The President General of The Fanji Development and Cultural Association (FADCA), Mba Tiemunji William Sunpewoh is inviting all sons and daughters of the Bafanji kingdom to attend the 2018 Annual General assembly meeting scheduled to take place at Unity Hotel Bafoussam on Saturday, March 2nd, 2019 from 10 am prompt. According to the communicate signed by the president general dated January 13th, 2019, the decision to move the venue of the meeting Bafoussam was unanimously at by the National Bureau of FADCA in accordance with article 13.1 of the FADCA constitution.
Delegates from various FADCA branches are expected to come along with all dues, activities report, and to present an annual balance sheet of all development funds as well as the Palace project.
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.
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.
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.

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.

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 MenkieuHongwie 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.
