The newly elected regional chairperson of the Social Democratic Front (SDF) party for the North West says his region is set for the National Convention of the party slated for October this year.
Talking to The Hilltop Mail , Mayor Fongu Cletus Tanwe noted that after the reorganization conference of the party that held on Saturday 24 September 2023 in Bamenda, the party is prepared to join the other regions in choosing the new leaders of the party at national level at the National Level.
He admitted that as the Regional leader of the party in the North West, he has received some files from militants aspiring for offices at the national level. Though Mayor Fongu didn't find it comfortable talking to us about the names, he indicated that the delegates at the regional conference are aware of those who are aspiring for national and will make the choice at the appropriate.
The Hilltop Mail has however gathered from other sources that apart from the highly expected interim chair of the party Joshua Osih and Zama Godden who will be contesting the top office of the frontline opposition party, other candidates are emerging.
The Hilltop Mail has it on good authority that Zama Godden has already paid the 7M FCFA non refundable caution. The party regulations indicate that after paying the caution, the aspiring candidate should be given the candidacy form. We cannot independently confirm if Zama has reform the form.
