The administrators of the Tatsa Estate have apologized to Sheriff-bailiff Joseph Fonyuy Njoya, a Bamenda based international legal consultant.

In a mail issued and signed by the three administrators of the Tatsa estate namely; Tatsa Fonkwang Norbert, Tatsa Mbikakeu Augustine and Tatsa Longlack Berlain, the trio on behalf of the entire family apologized for whatever wrongs their family members may have committed against Barrister Joseph Fonyuy Njoya during the Press Conference that took place at Ayaba Hotel on May 31, 2013.

The apology dated July 15, 2014 which The Eye laid hands on a copy was explicit and apologetic, yet impressive and full of dignity. The administrators averted that they were ill advised.

In a very cordial manner, the administrators outlined that "having amicably resolved these issues with you, we plead that all pending actions against our estate and individual members of our family be considered favourably. We hope that by this apology we can move on harmoniously in building together what our father left for us as a legacy for this country, and to accord the respect to you for your career as a legal practitioner".

It should be recalled that Sheriff-bailiff Joseph Fonyuy Joseph is a hard working and efficient international consultant who many young advocates look up to as their role model. What is peculiar about the learned advocate is that whenever you meet him for the first time, you are taken by his mastery in his profession by how he handles issues. Take it as arrogance and you are right for this is positive superciliousness because he is a master of his profession.

That notwithstanding, he has the drive and dedication that defies any facile explanations. From that standpoint, popular opinion in Cameroon has long described Barrister Njoya as a role model in the legal profession and a silent achiever.

When he was cited in the Tatsa saga, analysts were taken aback given that he is “highly skilled and approachable and has good legal and interpersonal skills”, a “formidable advocate” that could not be involved in scandals.

He is well known for his dedication to his profession as well as his clients, his will to win, his legal knowledge, creativity and attention to details.

Besides, he has also been said to be that kind of person who finds solutions to difficult problems. He will take time to understand every issue and will tailor his service around the needs not only for the sake of money but at times for humanity (Pro Bonu) and with a fair and flexible approach.

Where a case can be resolved through negotiations, so as not to incur costs, Maitre Njoya can be relied on for his strong negotiation skills but where a fight is necessary, he is renowned for his authority in such cases. Meet him at the Njoya Chambers in Bamenda and you will be marveled by his skills in both national and international issues.

When Abraham Lincoln in 1850 wrote the following on the job of a lawyers, he was categorical that even though “there is a vague popular belief that lawyers are necessarily dishonest…the impression is common, almost universal.

Let no young man choosing the law for a calling for a moment yield to the popular belief---resolve to be honest at all events; and if in your own judgment you cannot be an honest lawyer, resolve to be honest without being a lawyer”.

Lincoln appears to have practiced what he preached. Amazingly, he earned his nickname, “Honest Abe,” despite working in two professions commonly accused of ignoring the truth: law and politics.

Even as a young man, Lincoln’s honest character was evident just the way Cameroonians look at Barrister Joseph Fonyuy Njoya. Lincoln’s reputation for honesty followed him into politics just like Barrister Njoya’s truth earned him an apology from the Tatsa Estate administrator.

Lincoln’s reputation for absolute honesty gave him an edge as a leader. People might have disagreed with him, but they couldn’t question his integrity.
