Who replaces late Cameroonian business guru, Victor Fotso at the helm of Pete Bandjoun council in the West region is the question on every lip.
The founding President of one of Cameroon’s most popular television channels, Canal 2 International is a front line candidate for the post. Emmanuel Chatue made his intension public recently.
In an elaborate political agenda for the people of Bandjoun, the business man places the wellbeing of man at the centre. He acknowledges the tremendous development works executed by the former Mayor Victor Fotso but says “I will work with everyone to maintain what has been put in place and do more for the interest of the people”.
Emmanuel Chatue, fervent militant of the Cameroon People Democratic Movement (CPDM) was the campaign manager of the party in Koung Khi Division in the West Region for the 2020 municipal and legislative elections.
Despite Emmanuel Chatue’s years of militancy in the ruling party, political commentators say he has what has been considered an “unshakeable” political rival for the seat in the person of Nicky Love Maptue Fotso, first deputy mayor of the council since 2013.
The daughter of late Victor Fotso is believed to be a political heavy weight that might frustrate the political ambition of the CEO of Canal 2 television come Monday May 11th 2020 when the election will take place in the Bandjoun council hall.
The people of Pete Bandjoun municipality say the provision of basic social necessities remains an issue that the new management team will have to handle.
With just municipal councillors eligible to vote next month in respect to the law in Cameroon, no public political campaign has been noticed in Bandjoun though candidates for the post have been holding secret meetings with the electorates aimed at convincing them.
