A community-based organisation in Adamawa state under the auspices of Lidimba Community Foundation, has held stakeholder’s meeting of Mbula nation to enlighten people on violence- free election in 2023.

Speaking at a town hall meeting with stakeholders of Mbula nation in Yola, weekend, the convener and chairman of the foundation, Mr. Stephen Asso, a retired Commissioner of Police, tasked Mbula stakeholder’s to carry the enlightenment campaigns to all the nooks and crannies of the Mbula kingdom.

“There is lack of honest, transparent and selfless  approach to governance  as often times we fall under the full weight of greedy political class and as such we need to vote for credible, upright and accessible people with track records in their public and private lives.

“We must clear the doubts of negative perceptions and erroneous impression in the minds of people who did not wish us well that Mbula communities are too disunited for  positive development,” he said.

He decried the marginalisation of the Mbula people by the political class ,and their desperate bid to divide them in their quest for power for their own selfish political interest.  He called on Mbula people not to allow themselves to be used by some selfish politicians but put the interest of their people at heart.

He said the meeting was called at the instance of the forum not only to identify and address challenges impeding the development of the Mbula kingdom but also to ensure their people make good use of their PVCS  in the forthcoming general elections.
