Projects constructed and those under reconstruction within the framework of the Presidential Plan for the Reconstruction and Development of the North West and South West regions have come under scrutiny in the South West region.

The Minister, Director of Cabinet at the Prime Minister's office, who doubles as President of the Steering Committee of the plan, Balungeli Confiance Ebune, was in the field to inspect the projects in the South West region.

During the meeting that brought together beneficiaries, local development stakeholders and the implementing partners at the Buea Mountain Hotel, Wednesday March 22, 2023, the activity report for 2022 successes of the plan was presented.

In his welcome address, the Mayor of the Buea Council, Mafany Namange, thanked the Minister for the choice of Buea despite the tremendous challenge of the flood that hit the municipality last Saturday, March 18, 2023.

The Mayor expressed gratitude to the Head of State for the Presidential Plan to the people of Buea and the South West region as a whole.

Speaking later, the President of the Steering Committee of the Presidential Plan paid tribute to the victims of the flood disaster. He highlighted the signing of a loan agreement in financing the plan and described it as a step in the right direction.

The Minister stated: "Within the framework of this impetus for the reconstruction of these two regions, the Prime Minister instructed this mission which comprises of sectorial ministries with the aim of having first-hand information in order to fine-tune it."
