The Governor of the South West Region, Bernard Okalia Bilai commissioned Peter Tieh Nde, the new Senior Divisional Officer for Manyu Division on November 5, 2012 in Mamfe.
The major task the Governor assigned to Peter Tieh Nde as head of a border administrative unit, Manyu Division, is to wedge any menace of the Boko Haram. Peter Tieh Nde is coming to Manyu from a similar border Division (Ndian), harbouring the Bakassi zone and so has all it takes to face any trans-border threats as terrorism, banditry, drug trafficking, and contraband.
The 50-year- old Tieh Nde replaces Kamsu Patrick who moves to Monatele, Lekie Division in the same capacity. The new SDO for Manyu equally has the duty to supervise the construction of the long awaited 150-Kilometre Kumba - Mamfe road already announced by the Minister of Public Works to begin in 2013.
He will also have to facilitate decentralization, ensure proper execution of public investment project and cultivate harmony and peace among the population. The Governor called on the residents to give total support to the new territorial boss, enrol in the biometric registers for those who have reached the voting age of 20.
