According to the Mayor, the need for quater heads to be involved in development strides in their different jurisdictions cannot be overemphasized. Working hand in glove with their traditional rulers to implement projects is of top priority because projects earmarked for 2021 are priorities of the local population.

Allowances were promised to the traditional rulers, as well as quarter heads. The Bamenda II Council Mayor, Mayor Chenwi Peter urged both parties to work in synergy and earn encouragement from the Council.

"Bamenda II Council is working in Synergy with the City Council to give allowances to traditional leaders. Quater heads must ensure that projects are effectively executed in their areas before they are given allowances, so caution goes to contractors who want to be dubious to take contracts without executing." Mayor Chenwi Peter.

Quarter heads expressed gladness about the Mayor's decision to always keep the doors of the Council open to other opinions or proposals.
