We are governed by politicians and they determine our wellbeing. It is no secret in our country and Ngoketunjia Division in Particular that most people shy away from politics for one reason or the other. It is even alleged that competent and knowledgeable people who can take Cameroon to emergence are shying away from taking front line positions in politics. During the reorganization of the basic organs of the CPDM party in Ngoketunjia Division, the divisional commission charged with the process was headed by Dr. Fuh Calistus Gentry, a man who according to our readers did enough to merit the recognition of the Ngoketunjia people.
- Considering the levelheadedness with which he meticulously executed the task assigned to him by the central committee of the CPDM party,
- Considering the fact that the process went through in most part of the division without the scandals and sabotage that characterized other divisions,
- Considering the fact that peace, love and unity now reign among militants of the CPDM in Ngoketunjia Division.
- Considering the fact that each and every Cameroonian has the right to live and contribute to the development of any part of the country.
Dr. Fuh Calistus Gentry has been chosen as Ngoketunjia man of the month of November 2015.
BUT WHO IS NGOKETUNJIA MAN OF THE MONTH FOR NOVEMBER?
Born in 1963, Dr. Fuh Calistus Gentry is Secretary Of State in the Ministry of Industries, Mines and Technological Development. He was first appointed to the rank of Minister in 2007 after serving as Director General of Saitek Genie, a public works company from 1999 to 2007, he was also a lecturer at the University of Buea and a consultant at Cluff Ressources in London. He has a Masters and PHD in Mineral Exploration from the University of London. As leader of the divisional commission charged with the reorganization of the basic organs of the CPDM party in Ngoketunjia Division, Dr. Fuh Calistus Gentry had the uphill task of mediating to ensure that a consensus is achieved in the list of candidates brought forth for the Ngoketunjia I, II and III sections. This he did scoring 66.67% and went for the last resort in Ngoketunjia II Section where he again proved that he was the man in charge, introducing the use of a single ballot paper to minimize the selling and buying of votes. The reorganization exercise in Ngoketunjia I (Ndop Central) passed hitch-free with Dr. Ntoh Daniel (former mayor Ndop council) emerging as the section president of the main wing of the party while Mme Chengwe Cicilia (Director of the women’s empowerment centre) emerged as the president of the women’s wing and Mr. Fongong Roland (Lecturer G.H.S Bambalang) will lead the Youth Wing of the party. The trio, respectively from Bamunka, Bamessing and Bambalang fondoms led their various lists by consensus. In Ngoketunjia II (Balikumbat), Hon. Dingha Ignatius Banyin (Senator) won the position of president of the main wing after a hotly contested poll, and was followed by Mme Tanyi Esther for the women’s wing and Mr. Nchokeh Pezumbia Makazi for the Youth Wing. In Ngoketunjia III(Babessi), consensus was seemingly impossible until Dr. Fuh Calistus vowed that he would not allow militants in Babessi to go for elections given the political landscape. It was then that H.M. Fon Chafah XI of Bangolan met with the candidates, mediated and it emerged that Mr. Chindong David will continue to pilot the affairs of the party in Ngoketunjia III as section president of the main wing, Mme. Nyoh Margaret also chosen in to head the women’s wing and Mr. Tatangang Abdel Azizto heads the Youth Wing. It should be noted that none of them were contesting as all the contenders forfeited their positions in favour of consensus.
At the end, the ruling party is left stronger and people of Ngoketunjia made to understand what politics is all about.
When it happens in ngoketunjia, we know it and when we know it, you know.
