Mr. SONGA Pierre at the helm of MEZAM
The Governor has installed the newly appointed SDO for MEZAM, Mr. SONGA Pierre, calling on him to always be at the forefront of all development endeavors in his Division.
The handing over of command was between the outgoing SDO, NGUELE NGUELE Felix (now Governor of the South Region) and incoming SDO for MEZAM, SONGA Pierre Rene. The elegant ceremony took place at the Bamenda Grandstand, Commercial Avenue, grouping other administrative dignitaries, traditional ruler and religious authorities.
On issues to be tackled in the Division, the Government Delegate to the Bamenda City Council pointed out that the new SDO should brilliantly continue the projects and dreams of the outgoing SDO and facilitate local administration in the MEZAM Division that carries seven Sub-Divisions and Councils.
After the ritual for the command handing-over, a presentation of the constituted corps was done to the new SDO by the 1st Assistant SDO for MEZAM, followed by a military match-pass which was heavily applauded by dignitaries and dance groups also present at the occasion.
Upon installation, the Governor of the North-West Region recommended to the new SDO to ensure the maintenance of order, the enforcement of law and regulations as well as arbitrate the preservation of peace and proper functioning of the external government services within the Division. Reminding him on the differences between BAMBOUTOS where he was SDO and MEZAM, the North-West Governor equally urged him to enhance democracy and the respect of human rights by honoring citizens and amongst others, encourage the peaceful settlement of all conflicts.
The ceremony ended with the signing and handing over of documents at the SDO's Office at Up Station Bamenda, as well as presentation of gifts to the out gone and newly installed SDOs
