Commissioning the SDO into function, the Governor of North West Region, Mr Adolph  Lele Lafrique urged Mr Menyong to mobilise the population in order to bring back peace in Bui. This, the Governor asked the SDO to do through maximum cooperation between the security and the population. "The security officers can only succeed when the SDO, the security and the population work together", he affirmed. Mr Lele Lafrique equally set the SDO on the following tasks inter alia: to facilitate the return of all Bui indigenes who have fled home due to the crisis, continue appealing to the misguided youths of Bui who have picked up arms against the State to drop them and join the DDR centre that is already accommodating over 600 youths who have dropped arms, in liaison with Divisional Officers in Bui, create vigilante groups to watch over the entire Bui Division.

Speaking earlier, the Mayor for Kumbo Municipality, Dr Mborong Venasius Bongkiyung  in his welcome address, hailed the over 300 persons at the Tobin Grand Stand for having defied all odds to be part of the historic and solemn event. He later presented a plethora of problems ranging from prepondently, insecurity created by the crisis to lack of social amenities like hospitals, electricity.
Mr Meyong Gilbert Sunday, the incoming SDO is a native from Nwa Subdivision, Donga Mantung Division of the North West Region. Before his appointment as SDO for Bui, he was the Divisional Officer for Kumbo Centre, a post he occupied only for approximately two years before he was catapulted to the present post. Prior to being D.O for Kumbo Centre, he was the First Assistant SDO for Bui.
