Ambassador Njiwah also encourages other Chiefdoms on the Mambilla Plateau to have bilateral relationship with the Mbamnga Chiefdom, stressing the needs to take away politics from traditional rulerships.

"We want to assure you that we will give government all the necessary support within the ambit of the law so as attract developments needed in Mbamnga Constituency. It's not in our character from Mbamnga Constituency to disobey government, we are obedient citizens and we will continue to remain supportive to government both at the state and federal level.

"We don't intend to suffer our people any heartache, we do not also intend to go into anything that will be counterproductive to peace and development  particularly in Mbamnga Constituency"


The former Speaker however applauded the member Representing Gashaka Kurmi and Sardauna Federal Constituency Hon. David Fouh for commencing the construction of   a modern clinic in Bang-Fihm .
