The Elective General Assembly of North West Fon’s Union NOWEFU has been announced for the 25th of November, 2017 in Nkambe Donga Mantung Division of the North West Region. The date for the Elective General Assembly EGA is contained in invitations circulating across the region inviting the region’s administration and key actors the traditional rulers for the conclave. 

Sources in Nkambe have confirmed that Senator Fon Teche Njie acting President of the institution was in Nkambe to lay ground for the assembly. He is said to have visited the Mayor of Nkambe the Divisional Officer for the Nkambe Central Subdivision and the Senior Divisional Officer for Donga Mantung to inform and invite them to the EGA.
Talking to the Press at the close of the visits, the outgoing President explained that the EGA could not hold last year because of the state affairs in the region. With sporadic confrontations every now and then, the Fon-Politician added that it was risky to be moving the Fons up and down.  He also assured that Nkambe is set to host the Fon’s gathering. He used the Press exchange to invite the people of Donga Mantung to turn out in their numbers to give their fathers; the Fons of the North West a deserved reception.
The Fon’s EGA has been postponed on several occasions for diverse reasons with the current executive accused of trying to twist the constitution, hold onto power and deny others their right to lead the prestigious Fon’s Union.
It is expected that a new leadership will emerge at the close of the assembly in Nkambe with the host division expected to produce the new President as per the standing orders of the Union which prescribes rotation of the presidency amongst the Divisions of the NW.
No Fon has been tipped favourite for the function but there are growing fears that if the proposed constitution proposed by the leader of the Ngemuwah people and current president of NOWEFU sees the light of day, the new president may just be a figure head as there is the insertion of the post President General which sounds honourary and will not resect the rotation principle in the Union.
