In reaction, Paul Achombong, Bamenda City Mayor said Bamenda celebrates the Head of State for recognizing special efforts by the City Council to serve the population with a grant to help transportation. “Insecurity has greatly reduced since we prohibited motorcycles from the city centre. The decision brought another challenge without enough township taxis to help matters. That is why we went for buses to serve the population, free of charge. It has not been easy with the City Council’s financial limitations to deliver such a service for the past months,” he said.
