Councilors of the Bamenda II Sub divisional Council have expressed uncommon discontent with what they describe as the pretentious talk about effective decentralization at least not in their council area. 
Bamenda II Mayor Ballick Awa Fidelis
The municipal law makers got vexed when their Mayor Ballick Awah Fedelis told the Councilors in session March 29 that he did not know the person doing work on the road leading to the council chambers. The councilors frowned wondering at what effective decentralization the country can be talking about when contractors can be haired from Younde to come and do work for the council without the knowledge and even consent of the Mayor. Though the session was dedicated to the administrative accounts of Mayor Ballick Awa, the councilors found it relevant to use the session to urge government to effectively collaborate with the Mayors and council if the decentralization conversation should be listened to. 

Presenting his accounts for 2017 that witness a drop of about FCFA 50M from that of 2016, Mayor Ballick Awa described the year under review as more difficult than the previous one.
With challenges in local revenue collection, the municipal head told the session that the works being done in the area comes from investment projects from the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development and the Council Support Fund for Mutual Assistance FEICOM which have been used to execute some projects amongst them the construction of the Nitop Market, construction of roads, bore hole, supply of medical apparatus, purchase of equipment to schools amongst others. 

The Council also continued the Small Money Big Change program the Mayor said which enabled them assist with the sum of FCFA 500.000 five council constituencies for some specific projects under the care of the councilor of the area. 

The DO of Bamenda II Subdivision Ako Rogssinol who sat through the session encouraged the councilors not only to be collaborate with the government in achieving peace in the area but also to work hard in assisting the council in revenue generation.
