|Ngog Mapubi D.O. Congratulating Forces of Law and Order|
Before the military and civilian march pass, pupils and students drawn from some primary and secondary schools thrilled onlookers with choreographic dances.
Arguably, the most awe-inspiring performance was that of Government School Makai. The pupils sent the crowds cheering as they prodigiously executed the complex ‘assiko’ caper popular with the Bassas.
The Divisional Officer for Ngog Mapubi, Ambomo Mani Hervé Marie, who was presiding at his first-ever National Day celebration in a community whose reins he took barely weeks ago said the celebration of the 41st edition of the National Day in that part of the country was a resounding triumph.
“We have seen a rich and wonderful march pass of civilians and the forces of law and order to who I wish to pay a growing tribute for all the services they have been rendering to this nation,” he said.
“I want to use this opportunity to call on the population of this area to stand firm behind the head of state, President Paul Biya to consolidate the values of unity in this fatherland that are attached to our republic”, the divisional officer added.
Ngog Mapubi is one of the biggest subdivisions of the Nyong and Kellé division. It has a population of over 30,000 inhabitants spread over 17 villages on a surface area of 754 square kilometres.
According to Mr Simb Emile, Mayor of Ngog Mapubi, the people of the sub division are principally farmers.
“With the birth of the Boumnyebel junction, the subdivision has been engaged in many economic activities”, the mayor said adding that Boumnyebel has since been the economic hub of Ngog Mapubi. “It is from Boumnyebel that the council gets it revenue”.
