Barrister Mbumbu Dickson has appreciated the massive turnout and promised to do all within his capacity to work towards meeting the needs of the village.
The Bambui Traditional Council Chairperson Akuoh Valentine and the Divisional Officer for Tubah Narcise Metougue have congratulated BACUDA for the successful mobilization while expressing the wish for them to continue in the same path in search for peace and community development.
Represented by the Deputy Mayor for Tubah, Hon Agho Oliver currently out of the country on a special state mission made his donation promising to always do more for a community that has shown him so much love.
"I feel so happy with the efforts of the Bambui Cultural and Development Association for this initiative. As you can see, the event took place in the palace and the attendance was huge. I want to thank them again and assure them of my constant support for everything that has to do with community development and promote peace." Hon Agho Oliver told www.hilltopvoices.com via a messaging app from the US.
The development oriented MP never missed the opportunity of energizing the fundraiser at the esplanade of the Bambui palace as one of the major chief launchers with the sum of 500 000FCFA, which event saw contributions from across the board amounting to over 22 millions.
The Fon of Bambui HRH Angafor Moo-bo III has expressed immense gratitude to all his sons and daughters for working relentlessly towards giving the rural home and the village in general a befitting face lift. He has appealed for more contributions for the development of the village.
The wish of Barrister Mbumbu Dickson and his executive is that the funds raised will be immediately put to use. By the time funds are exhausted, they hope the project will be at nothing less than 90 percent physical realisation.
The AGM also afforded the people of Bambui through an ecumenical service an opportunity to thank God and ask for more blessing and protection of the village and her children where ever they maybe.
