The South West Regional Secretary General of the Human Rights Commission and Board Member of Elections Cameroon, Barrister Christopher Tambe Tiku has said that, the Fako Chiefs Conference reigns supreme and that he will remain loyal to the traditional authorities.

Barrister Tambe Tiku made the remarks during an exclusive interview with Cameroon Concord in Buea.

The legal brain from the South West region was reacting to news that three of the seven Fako traditional rulers have pleaded for an out of court settlement over a land-grabbing battle in September 2014.

Barrister Tambe Tiku observed that the President of the Fako Chiefs Conference who also doubles as the supreme leader of the Dikolo people, Chief Samuel Epupa Ekum alongside Chiefs Njie Mbanda of Lysoka and Otto Molive Molungu of Batoke have demonstrated that the power of the chiefs is indeed divine.

Speaking to Cameroon Concord's Soter Agbaw-Ebai, Tambe Tiku sounded a note of caution that the chiefs' decision should not be seen as a form of weakness but a win-win situation for both sides.

He observed that the actions of the chiefs prior to the present outcome did cause him a lot of pain but, "I feel that the out of court settlement should be a new beginning in our long-standing relationship".

Barrister Tambe Tiku, who technically avoided to revisit the whole saga added that the Fako Chiefs were ill advised and that he was satisfied "the matter is slowly but surely moving towards its end".

Asked what he intended to do with the money paid to him by three of the seven chiefs, Tambe Tiku revealed, "I am going to donate the entire money to my church as part of my own contribution to the new Presbyterian Church building project in Buea Station".
