TRIBUTES TO CHAIRMAN NI JOHN FRU NDI

PRESENTED BY COUNCILLOR LIMEN FLORENCE FORMER MUNICIPAL COUNCILLOR BAMENDA 2 COUNCIL


Chairman Ni John Fru Ndi is my political mentor. He knew me as a stake holder in the field
of development through the various tv and radio programmes where l sensitized the public
on persons living with disability.


In December 2012, after one of my radio programmes on Radio Hot Cocoa, he called me to
appreciate the efforts l was making to support persons with impairment.He said,he had
heard my cry and wanted to spend Christmas with persons living with disability in his
compound in Santa.l accepted the invitation and he took necessary disposition for us to be
there by providing 4 buses. Indeed, we had a good time with him and other invitees. He is
the only political leader who invites persons with disability to his occasions.


As the Chairman kept visiting my office to encourage my efforts, on one occasion, he said, “
my daughter, I’m personally attracted to you by your advocacy and l’m in full support of what
you have been saying.l want you to be in the council in order to enable you expatiate on
issues of disability. You have to work hard.l will give you the advice you need and you do the
rest of it by yourself. Start now to get yourself on board come 2013.” This is how l wore the
shoes of the municipal Council.


The Chairman’s charisma, humility and simplicity gave persons living with disability hope,
courage and determination to forge ahead despite many hurdles on their way. By practicing
the politics of inclusion,you have enabled the voiceless to have a say in governance and par
excellence the Lord Almighty will also open the door of his kingdom to embrace you.
Good night Chairman
