CAMEROON NEWS: EXECUTION OF PUBLIC INVESTMENT BUDGET [NTEM VALLEY]; REGRETTABLE WITH THE ABSENCE OF MAYORS – JEAN-BAPTISTE MBA EVINA
cameroondailyjournal.com|As of 20 September 2018, the Ntem Valley Department has a physical execution rate of around 20% and an estimated financial implementation rate of 12%.
A catastrophic and infernal situation which from the point of view of the links of the chain of execution is to put in the asset of the four mayors of the boroughs of Ambam, Kye-ossi, Ma’an and Olamze which shine by their remarkable absence during the works.
For Jean-Baptiste Mba Evina, former deputy and chairman of the meeting, this policy of the empty chair is detrimental to this department. “This absence of mayors for this work is regrettable. The Ntem Valley can not develop and even build when the mayors voluntarily decide to put themselves on the margins of this dynamic, “he regretted.
In terms of the weaknesses recorded, administrative slowness, the low level of appropriation of the codes of June 20, 2018, and the foreclosure risk of several projects that are still waiting for attribution to the departmental procurement commission are high on the agenda.
Even if the President of the session also blames the poor performances of the BIP for the delays in the payment of the statements by the public treasury and in the particularly difficult context, the trend must be reversed. “But we must go to the maturation of the projects and pay more attention to the quality of the work done. And to achieve this, we must be rigorous about the conformity of the achievements in relation to the specifications “.
It is a question for the actors of the chain of execution in the department of the Valley of the Ntem to harmonize their position to guarantee the effective take-off of this young administrative unit.
