The Mayor of Buea Council Patrick Ekema Esunge has told Pressmen in the North West Region that the Buea Council was never part of declarations of the South West Forum which took place in February in which certain xenophobic speeches were against North Westerners.

He made the statement in Bamenda, North West Region recently while addressing Media men in the region on the ongoing strike action in the two English speaking regions.

Patrick Ekema Esunga who has come under spy glass of Anglophones for his merciless treatment on those respecting ghost towns in the two regions, said he was never part of the meeting where former PM Peter Mafany Musonge, Senator Chief Tabe Tando, Dr Nalova Lyonga told attendees that the people of North West region were stronger and could overcome them in case any independence in given them.

Patrick Ekema said out of 18 top positions in the Buea Council, 7 of them are occupied by people from the North West. An indication that he is practicing National Integration.

The Buea Mayor said he is also a son of North West and has been accepted by the people concluding that the people should live as one regardless of their region of origin and tribes.

Observers hold that the Mayor is trying to clean an already damaged image in the face of ongoing crisis which he has been strongly criticized for his alleged role in the arrest of youths in Buea.
