Executives of all the Subsections of CPDM in Fako III, Buea, have resolved to slam a vote of no confidence on the Mayor of Buea, Patrick Ekema Esunge.
They took the resolution during a recent executive meeting and forwarded the resolutions to the CPDM Secretary General, Jean Kuete.
According to the executive, the party discipline is not respected by Mayor Ekema, who has formed an NGO that adores him more than the party that made him Mayor.
“He does not respect party hierarchy, he is using money to destabilise party activities, he is creating congestion in town by building on any little available space, he is giving the party an unenviable image, he has reduced CPDM comrades and party officials to beggars, he has refused to pay some Council workers for 23 months, he has driven many militants away from party, he has demolished semi-permanent structures in Buea with impunity, he is arrogant, rude and insolent,” they said.
The local party officials called for the disbanding of the “Fako Network Development Organisation.”
Mayor Ekema is facing internal squabbles with his own party comrades a few days after reports went viral that the Mayor surreptitiously entered the University of Buea with fake certificates.
According to the reports, Ekema wrote the GCE A levels seven times and never succeeded to pass the exams.
It is reported that after dabbling into politics, Ekema used one of his political God fathers to gain admission into the University of Buea with just a paper.
After obtaining the Bachelor and Masters Degrees and enrolling into a PhD programme, his fake certificate chronicle only came to the fore after the UB administration started investigating those who used Kumba and Mutengene made certificates to gain employment in the citadel of learning.
The municipal administrator’s situation is very precarious among the Anglophone community because he has been using his position to fight against the Anglophone course.
Mayor Ekema bought 200 taxis to fight the phenomenon of Ghost Towns in Kumba, he hired thugs to take SDF lawmakers when they came to Buea to condemn police brutality on the University of Buea students and Common Law Lawyers.
Ekema also ordered Buea Council Police to close the shops of those who respect the ghost town calls and connive with Francophone administrators to grab and sell Fako ancestral land among other ills.
