By   February 29, 2016

Dear All,

I wish you a wonderful day and and happy Friday. I would like to update you on a significant meeting that took place last Sunday Feb 21, 2016; BACDA USA held its first ever meeting with all Clan, sub clan, village, friend Meetings from the bakossi area. The attendance was very impressive after invitations to leaders from the following groups was sent; Mwanyoe-Mbwogmud, Elung Women (EWOCUSA), Harmony Group, Mwetan, Nyasosso,Mwambong Family Meeting, Nkikoh (NKICUDA), Bangem Diaspora Meeting, POALA USA, Mwansudem, Ekambeng, Ninong (NICDA).

I am glad to report to you that the meeting was very fruitful with every group present reporting successful accomplishments of projects in education and healthcare. I as also pleased to note that all groups have members that are also active in the various BACDA USA chapters. At this moment I would like to recognize a leader in attendance who happens to be in multiple groups (Mwetan, Harmony Group, Ebonji meeting to name a few) and is also a BACDA USA member, like many of the other leaders; please help me salute Mr. Derrick Njoh for his dedication in participating in BACDA USA development at the same time with Clan development.

Another item of discussion was the road project, and all leaders were in accordance that all options should be used to improve the current situation. Some options presented include educating the locals of the need to continue their contributions, holding elected officials accountable and better education of the whole project.

I will further like to announce to all that this administration will continue to reach out to all these leaders for information sharing and partnering in developmental projects.

I will call this group the Bakossi Council. It is not an organ of BACDA USA but a platform for all the groups to share ideas and work together for the development of the Bakossi people and area.

Thank you to all the leaders that took the time to call in and to those who could not make it, we pray that on the next call you will be available.
