According to the traditional ruler, “I think the damage is enormous and you yourself have seen what has happened here in Baba I, it has created a lot of problems for people, you see people leaving their homes to an unknown place. We are thinking of how to rehabilitate them in other people’s houses. This is due to poor drainage system, when they were constructing the road, we tried to give advice to the company but they said they had their technicians to do it. Before they left, we already started complaining that this will happen. Now it’s happening when they are no long here. I think this is government’s place to decide on what to do with them”.

REV. FR. EUCHARIUS NDZEFEMITI HAS CELEBRATED HIS FIRST HOLY MASS WITH THANKSGIVING IN BABA I. SUNDAY 06, SEPTEMBER 2015.

Drawing inspiration from the book of Isaiah 35:4-7 and James 2:1-5, the man of God said Jesus speaks not only to the Pharisees and scribes, but to his disciples, warning them against those evils that can pollute the human heart and destroy social relationships. This, he challenged Christians to renewal, by examining those traditional ways of acting and thinking that reflect “mere human precepts” instead of God’s will, and summoned all to look into their hearts, making perhaps a list of those destructive attitudes that can infect even the hearts of those closest to Jesus.

REV. FR. EUCHARIUS NDZEFEMITI

HON. NJINGUM MUSA HAS CREATED THE UNEXPECTED IN BALIKUMBAT

The honorable member of Parliament for Ngoketunjia North Constituency took Balikumbat by storm this Saturday 05, September 2015 as he officially presided over the finals of a Peace and Unity Cup Competition. The competition brought together all the Five(5) villages that make up Balikumbat Sub Division. Being a member of Parliament for Ngoketunjia North Constituency covering Babessi and Ndop central, one would have expected the Law Maker to limit his activities in Babessi Sub Division and Ndop Central Sub Division. Contrary, he believes that Ngoketunjia is one and indivisible, reason why to him he prefers looking at himself and his brother Honorable Banmi Emmanuel (member of Parliament for Ngoketunjia South) as members of Parliament for Ngoketunjia Division.
