Former Governor Enow Abram Egbe has been named new Chairman of the Board of Directors at Elections Cameroon, ELECAM.
The former Governor of Adamawa region replaces Dr Samuel Fonkam AZU’U who has held the position since the creation of ELECAM. Madam Amougou Nee Abena was named Vice president of the Board. Enow Abrams Egbe also served as Inspector General at the Ministry of Territorial Administration and Decentralization and was appointed last year to join the Board on April 21, 2016.
Samuel Fonkam AZU’U leaves ELECAM amid controversy and infighting with the executive director, Abdoulaye Babale. Another presidential decree renewed the mandate of members for another two years.
The appointment of Enow Abrams Egbe comes one year before the electoral period with four elections previewed for 2018 including the Presidential. ELECAM has also recorded low turnout in the recent times in terms of registration where for three months only 1040400 people were registered with South West region tailing the table.
