Know the leaders: The Archbishop of Bamenda Archdiocese

The Archbishop of Bamenda, His Grace Andrew Fuanya Nkea is the third Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Bamenda.

The Archdiocese of Bamenda is the Metropolitan See of the Ecclesiastical Province of Bamenda.

The Holy Father appointed Bishop Andrew Nkea to this position on 30th December 2019.

He took canonical possession of the Archdiocese on Saturday 22 February, 2020.

In this position, he has replaced a great prelate, the Right Reverend Cornelius Fontem Esua, who was Bishop and Archbishop for 37 years.

Archbishop Nkea’s motto is “In spiritu et veritate” – in spirit and in truth. Like Pope John Paul II, he believes that “only the truth can set us free. We must always stand for truth…even when people misunderstand us and when we go through suffering. ”

To Archbishop Andrew Nkea, “real worship, real service, real love, real communion, and real friendship can only be in spirit and in truth.”

His coat of arms is a shield containing five images.

Why a shield?

He comes to his new position as Archbishop of Bamenda fearlessly with the shield of faith in his hand. Hear him: “The Shield represents the Shield of faith which St. Paul refers to in Ephesians 6:16 when he says that ‘in all things take up the shield of faith, with which you may be able to extinguish all the fiery darts of the most wicked one.”

He is aware of the challenges of the Bishopric. But he is ready to face all the trials and difficulties with the prayers of his patron Saint, Saint Andrew, the apostle.

He believes that becoming an Archbishop is not by his power but by the power of the Holy Spirit. He believes that whatever work he will do will not be by his power but by the power of the Holy Spirit who accompanies him.

He is determined to bear witness, throughout his Episcopal Ministry, to the truth and nothing but the truth, for, to him, “The only way to fight falsehood is to preach and stand for the Truth.”

Hear him: “I will depend completely on the Spirit of Truth, whom Christ says when he comes, will lead us to the complete Truth.” (John 16:13).

Like the good Shepherd who is ready to give his life for his sheep, Archbishop Andrew Nkea will be a good Shepherd to ‘all the priests, religious men and women, all Christ’s lay faithful, men and women of good will, and all God’s children. ”

The Archbishop has always committed his “priesthood under the patronage and protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary, mother of Christ and mother of Priests.”

He will continue to do just that. He writes: “Once again, and in a special way, I commit my episcopate to the Blessed Virgin Mary, whose son died on the Cross for our salvation and who has called me to his service.”

Conclusion:

Archbishop Andrew Nkea begins his episcopate in the Archdiocese of Bamenda armed with the shield of Faith, with full trust in his master Jesus Christ, he will preach the truth, fearlessly, ready to die for the truth. He completely surrenders himself to the care of the Holy Spirit, mother Mary and his patron Saint, Saint Andrew. He will be a good Shepherd to the flock under his care.

Let us all pray for this brave prelate, that God may protect him from all harm and sustain his wisdom, energy, strength, courage and steadfastness.

All the information given in this post about our Archbishop has been culled from the explanation of his coat of arms which he himself has given.

It is my wish to accompany all the Bishops of my Ecclesiastical Province in their Ministry to enable the flock they Shepherd to better understand them and open themselves to be shepherded.

If you like what we are doing, why not do same in your Diocese or Ecclesiastical province?

I invite communicators in the other dioceses of the Ecclesiastical Province of Bamenda to forward to me any information on the activities as well as the homilies of their bishops so that we can break them down for a better understanding by the flock.

Let us renew our zeal for the Catholic Faith.

What people say about the new Archbishop of Bamenda

How do you know somebody?

You can know somebody from:

  • What the person says;
  • What the person does;
  • What others say about the person;
  • What others do not say about the person.

The Archdiocese of Bamenda has a new Archbishop. Because everybody around me is excited about this man, I decided to take a closer look at him to better know him.

  1. Who is he?
  2. What is he saying?
  3. What is he doing?
  4. What are people saying about him?
  5. What are people not saying about him?

In the series of posts, starting with this one, we shall let you meet this distinguished servant of God.

I could have gone in for an interview to let him reveal himself to you, but I have adopted an another approach of letting us hear what people think of him.

Our new Archbishop is a man of 55 bustling with energy. He is called His Grace Andrew Fuanya Nkea.

When he was taking possession of the Archdiocese canonically, a special magazine was published with lots of good will messages.

I have taken time and read all these messages word for word to get what people think and say about him. These are few of what I gathered.
People say he is:

A seasoned intellectual;
A seasoned man of God;
A dedicated servant;
A charismatic personality;
A no nonsense leader;
An eloquent speaker;
An experienced teacher;
A great orator;
Very eloquent
Great inspirer and motivator;
Prayerful man
Very couragrous pastor
A loyal and faithful servant of God;
A wise man;

“Known to speak plainly, you have always stood firmly for justice and fairness. You have always been ever ready to proclaim and defend the truth of the gospel and the Church’s faith…ready to die’ for the Church.” (Bishop Michael Bibi, Apostolic Administrator of the Diocese of Buea).

” We have keenly followed you in your avowed dedication to spread the Good News as far and as wide as possible – especially by your every word and deed – and we are convinced that you are a remarkable gift from God to the Church in the Bamenda Ecclesiastical Province.” (Hyacinth Banseka)

“…you have been sufficiently prepared for this onerous task. You have always shown yourself a focused gentleman with nobility of character and graceful attitude. You will be an asset to the Church in the Archdiocese of Bamenda.” (Most Rev. Valerian Okeke. Archbishop of Onitsha)

Archbishop Emeritus of Bamenda: “you already distinguished yourself as a young, dynamic, intelligent, highly competent, zealous and dedicated teacher, administrator and Pastor, and indeed, as a Shepherd in the mind if Christ and the Church.” (Archbishop Emeritus, Cornelius Fontem Esua).

“I am aware of your well,- known prudence and clear vision for the Universal Church and your zeal to watch over and motivate each local church as a furrow where faith and vocations are born and .” (Sister Alfonsa)

He served in the Diocese of Mamfe “with great diligence through the preaching of the word of God, hard work, leadership, you have shown that you could collaborate well with the Priests, Religious and laity… You have the capacity and potential to take the Church forward in this challenging time.” (Mother Augustina Amadi , Mother Founder of Missionary Sisters of Divine Providence).

“…a very prayerful priest and great preacher.” (Mary Bi Suh Atanga)

“My amazement is beyond measure as I see and feel the unfathomable ways of the Holy Spirit which come to the fore in your unshakeable spiritual convictions, your thoroughness of approach to all that you set out for, the fervent flourish and finality with which you have stamped your every engagement wherein others would find rather bland processes.” Fr. George Ngalim

” have watched with rapt attention your growth in vocation…I have watched you develop the dimensions of a preacher a-fire with the Spirit of Pentecost, watched you mellow into a leader with Christocentric insights of Spirit-inspired surefootedness, and I have learnt to live with your strictures and respect for procedure, which to you is the condition par excellence for the validity of proposal from all and sundry. ” (Fr George Tomrila Ngalim)

“Your candour and eloquence in reaching out to your flock as you bring to them the Word of God is unique.” (Dr. Asheri Kilo Fofung)

“…one of the most awesome and selfless servants of God.” ( Alfred and Lilian Sibedwo)

“I have found you a real honourable servant of God who is humble and shares with all, who is loving and has a listening ear and especially who empathises…” ( Mrs. Abanda Grace)

“You have both the intellectual and spiritual capacities to do the things that should be done.” (The Dzekashu Family).

The Archbishop “brings with him a strong academic background. He has proven himself to be a man of intellect, prayer, fidelity, and pastoral zeal to the people he has ministered to in his time as priest and Bishop. He is an outstanding example of a modern Bishop. He is wonderfully engaged with youth and has a tremendous capacity to take the Church forward in challenging times… He will be a wise and pastoral shepherd to the people of the Bamenda Archdiocese and the wider Church in Cameroon.” (Armand and Yayu)

“…an extraordinary servant in the Lord’s vineyard, his love for humanity, kindness, forgiving heart, and steadfast guidance of his flock are but a few examples of his commitment to God’s work.” (Christine Achu-Anoma)

When the Archbishop was still a young priest: “As a young and vibrant priest, full of energy and pastoral zeal, he held us spellbound during his sermons…His Masses were always very full with Christians enjoying his very practical sermons and we always left the Church with lots of spiritual ‘food’ to feed us for the rest of the week and beyond.” (Paul T. Atang)

“I have followed with keen attention and admiration his rise within the hierarchy of the local Church – buoyed by his authoritative preaching, his strong convictions about family, traditional and community values and his emphasis on Catholic Education at all levels…a charismatic voice for the Church of the future…a mobiliser of people… an innovator..one with great love for the Gospel Message and for the Church and its growth.” (Tameh Valentine, Educationist).

I hope you enjoyed reading what people are saying about this brand new Archbishop.

Don’t forget to watch out for a continuation.

Don’t Compromise Yourself For Toxic People

Toxic mask in between dead leaves.

I’m sure you’ve noticed by now, not everyone is a delight to be around. This doesn’t make them a bad person necessarily; it just means that they don’t necessarily serve as a healthy influence.

Stating that someone is toxic can be a bit harsh, although sometimes it can even be an understatement. However, if a person displays behaviour that has a negative impact on you in any way, it’s unhealthy for you. Honestly, you shouldn’t subject yourself to someone else’s toxicity. Despite your tendency to want to give someone the benefit of the doubt, it’s not mandatory that we do so.

People inspire you, or they drain you — pick them wisely.” — Hans F. Hansen

Going Against Reason

Research from Friedrich Schiller University in Germany, has shown how serious toxic people are. They found that exposure to incentives that causes strong negative emotions will cause your brains to have a massive stress response. This the same kind of exposure you get when dealing with toxic people.

Exposure to even a few days of stress compromises the effectiveness of an important brain area (hippocampus) that is responsible for reasoning and memory. Being exposed to weeks of stress cause reversible damage to brain cells and being exposed for months of stress can permanently destroy them.Toxic people don’t just make you miserable, they’re tough on your brain. Toxic people’s behaviour is so irrational, it truly goes against reason.

“There’s folks you just don’t need.You’re better off without em.Your life is just a little better because they ain’t in it.” — William Gay

There are many different things toxic people do to manipulate people and situations to their advantage. Here are my five worst types of toxic drainers that I am staying away from and you should as well. Knowing them will help you and me to avoid falling under their influence.

1. The Schemer

Schemers are the worst! They suck time and energy out of your life under the disguise of friendship. They are complicated to deal with and hard to notice, because they treat you like a friend and try to build a genuinely false trust (if that makes sense). They know your values, what makes you happy, what you like, and what you think is funny, and they use this information as part of a hidden plan.

Schemers always want something from you, and if you look back on your relationships with them, it’s all take with little or no giving. They’ll do anything to win you over, just so they can work you over again and again.

“We perceive that the schemers return again and again to common sense and labor. Such is the evidence of history.” — Henry David Thoreau

2. The Pessimistic

Pessimistic people suck the life out of you and anyone in the room by imposing their negativity and pessimism upon everyone they encounter. Their viewpoints always lean towards what’s missing in life instead of what’s there to appreciate. They can inject fear and concern into even the most caring situations.

A study by the Notre Dame University discovered that students assigned to roommates who thought negatively were more likely to develop negative thinking and sometimes even depression.

“Pessimist: One who, when he has the choice of two devils, chooses both.” — Oscar Wilde

3. The Judgmental

Judgmental people instantaneously tells you exactly what is and isn’t accepted in a forceful manner, and they primarily aim this at you. They take the thing you’re most passionate about and make you feel awful about it. It never comes to their mind to appreciate and learn from people who are different from them, because judgmental people look down on others all the time.

Judgmental people kill your longing to be a passionate and lovely expressive person, so you’re best off kicking them out and being yourself.

“Sometimes the nicest people you meet are covered in tattoos and sometimes the most judgmental people you meet go to church on Sundays.” — Earl Dibbles Jr.

4. The Victim

Victims are hard to identify because you initially empathise with their problems. However, as time passes, you start to realise that their time of need is stealing all your time. Victims actively push away any personal responsibility by making every problem they encounter into an impenetrable wall.

The thing is, they don’t see tough times as opportunities to learn and grow from, but instead, they see them as a one-way ticket out. They choose to suffer every time and that is what makes victims so toxic. As an old saying goes:

“Pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional.”Buddha

5. The Gossip

Gossipers take pleasure from other people’s misfortunes. It might be fun to poke into somebody else’s personal or professional mistakes, but over time, it gets tiring, makes you feel gross, and hurts other people. The worst part is that you lose yourself at a certain point.

There are too many goods out there and too much to learn from interesting people to waste your time talking about the misfortune of others.

Great minds discuss ideas, average ones discuss events, and small minds discuss people.— Eleanor Roosevelt

Be Kind To Yourself First

I know this can be a difficult step to take. Especially, for the kind-hearted ones out there. Kindness may be a prerequisite for healthy and meaningful relationships, but not setting boundaries can come across as an invitation to those with draining emotional needs.Be too kind and you will start to attract needy, excessively emotional, controlling, and guilt-tripping toxic people.

Again, don’t compromise yourself for them — be kind to yourself first.

Guest interview: a young, talented, dynamic leader.

Today, I would like us to meet a multi-talented young man from the Northwest Region of Cameroon. I’ve watched him grow from a very humble beginning when he graduated from high school to a world class development professional about a decade later. He has braved the very odds on his way to the top and still continues to make news. He has traveled to at least two countries in five of the six continents in the world and has this unique way of doing ordinary things in an extraordinary way that makes him a leader and sets him apart from his peers. He has this exceptional quality of tending many irons on fire with wax on them at the same time.

20150613_174425Mr. Abongta, you are welcome to Success Inspirer.

Thank you sir, it’s a great honor for me to be here.

Can you kindly introduce yourself? Who are you? Your full name; when and where you were born; where you live and what you do for a living.

I am called Abongta Shu Moncha. I was born in Bafut, one of the principal Fondoms in the Northwest Region of Cameroon. Today, I live and work in Yaounde as a Strategic Information Officer for an American international organization called Palladium (previously known as Futures Group International).

What does your work with Palladium entail?
My present work with Palladium entails providing Technical Assistance to Governments and other local as well as international organizations to develop information management systems. For example, right now, I am providing Technical Assistance to three key Ministries in Cameroon to develop a national Monitoring and Evaluation System linked to a Management Information System for the care and support of orphans and vulnerable children’s programs within the framework of a USAID funded project.

May I know your academic profile!

Well it’s a little complicated hahaha. To spare you the trouble of naming all my Bachelor Degrees and certifications, I hold a Masters Degree in Anthropology, a Project Management Professional Certification and currently studying for another Masters Degree in Monitoring and Evaluation.

Why did you opt to follow the career that you are following? What is your motivation?

Two main happenings contributed to my becoming an international development professional and motivational speaker today. Firstly, I was part of this life-changing organization – Gold Touch International (GTI)where I got exposed to the world of positive thinking and personal development. It so transformed me into knowing that whatever you dream of, you can become and being somebody who is not afraid to use his brains, I told myself I needed nothing but the best. That was the foundation to becoming a motivational speaker today. Secondly, sometime back, I worked for UNICEF as Senior Programs Assistant and was more passionate about Monitoring & Evaluation (M&E) but, I had a Boss who after noticing I was interested in M&E, told me one day that I could never become an M&E Professional you know, I was taken aback by his statement. Coming from GTI where I was trained not to believe in impossibilities, I told myself I will do whatever it takes to not only be an M&E person but go places with it to prove that what I want I get it.It was a long and difficult road but I went back with determination to do a Bachelors and later a Masters Degrees respectively specializing in Medical Anthropology, a certification in Project Management, and a number of certifications in M&E.

Tell me some of the ups and downs of your present job; the thrilling moments; and have you had some moments that are not so pleasant?

You know, the kind of work I do brings me in contact with lots of people from different backgrounds and operating at very high levels in governments as well as lower levels within communities in different countries. I have to exhibit a very high level of organization, dynamism and tact. Sometimes, the results are excellent thus motivating me to do even more; sometimes issues spring up that could kill my moral but given that I have to get things done in order to move forward, I am bound to identify the origins of such issues and nip them in the bud. I travel a lot which makes me get to know other cultures and meet people but trust me, sometimes the traveling gets too frequent and becomes a difficulty.

If you were to go back and start life from zero, tell me some of the things that you would change in your life; or would you follow the same path?

Honestly, I got to where I am today the hard way. Though it’s given me a lot of experience and made me much stronger, I can’t recommend such a path to anybody else. You see when you go through pitfalls, you have a responsibility to ensure that those who come after you and listen don’t fall into them too. If I were to take it all over, I would still want to be who I am today but not certainly using the same path to get there.

You happen to be a blogger, what motivated you to start blogging?

First of all, I love writing. I had this passion for writing before joining Gold Touch International back in those days and it used to be manual, only a few got to read my writings. then the email came along and I started sharing my writings with friends by email. As a motivational speaker and with the coming of the social media, I told myself, “This is what I wanted; this is the time to get millions the world over to enjoy my articles.” So I started a blog.

Having been blogging for a good number of years now what have you found to be the benefits of blogging

First and foremost, I blog for the love of it. I know it’s a source of income for many but I am very satisfied when people read my articles and comment on them. But over time, I have had people inviting me to present keynotes talks at their events. I have gotten motivational speaking contracts thanks to people who subscribed to my blog. I remember the last time I was in Europe, I got a thousand Euros at the end of a surprise invitation to talk at an event.

What challenges do you face as a blogger?

Firstly, it’s much work to maintain a real-time blog especially by a blogger as busy with other things as I am. There are times I have to keep late nights or wake up much earlier to write articles. I have written many articles in a plane flying to different destinations for other ends. There are equally times when I feel I am not receiving as many likes or comments as I would have loved.

What are your blogging goals?

Hahahaa, well, to get as many objective likes and comments as I can get. This tells me I am making a difference. I have received calls from people who tell me “Your article was life-changing for me.” I wish I could receive such motivating feedback more often. I hope it’s not too much to ask.

Looking at social media in general, would you say it has brought good or harm?

Well, it depends on how you look at it. I think it’s one of the most powerful educational tools the world ever witnessed and I am sure its founders never could have imagined it would have such influence on people the world over. That’s not to say that it hasn’t got its short coming too. You know with the advent of scamming, and cyber criminality in general, some people have used it to inflict pain on others. The world is polarized and so the good side of social media does not cancel the fact that its short comings too do exist.

What is your advice especially to the young people who are the highest users of social media or consumers of social media products?

 I tell them each time I have the opportunity that they should use it for education – enlightenment for short. Many have legitimately become rich thanks to social media. There are those who have gotten jobs, and run businesses. I think you can legitimately benefit through it. They should shun negatives and the horrific aspects associated with it. It’s not because you can defraud people through social media that you should. It’s about your person.

20150830_095312 Many bloggers are also authors; people who have published. What have you published or what do you intend to publish?

 Wow! There is a lot in the pipeline. It might be a weakness on my part but there are some things that I take my time to do. It might interest you to know that I have over ten manuscripts lying in my drawer set to publish mostly novels and personal development books. I equally have over fifteen screen plays set for shooting.By the way, I will be sending a formal invitation to you to edit one of my upcoming books. It will be an honor for me.

 Let me congratulate you on that. Now, tell me. Looking at the youth of today, how prepared are they to take over leadership from their parents tomorrow? The way we see youth behaving, one can be rather pessimistic about the future. What do you say?

 The youths of today unlike the time when we were growing up are exposed to a lot of information that normally should make them better placed to take up responsible leadership positions in the future. I think the popular cliché “The youths of today are the leaders of tomorrow” made many of them think that it’s by birthright. They have failed completely to know that becoming the leaders of tomorrow means they have to prepare today and not tomorrow. Many are youths who want a free lunch. Millions of them are getting enrolled into extremist movements and other outrageous ventures wanting quick riches. Sad enough, our educational system is not helping them with better options but I think there is hope if the leaders of today start doing something to prepare those of tomorrow.

 Many young people don’t seem to care about God any longer. They don’t go to church, indulge into criminality and that seems to make the future very uncertain. What is your reaction?

 I say it always that anybody whether youth or adult who plans without God or whoever you conceive him to be is planning for disaster. Knowing God humbles you and predisposes you for the better side of life. A Godly person will not defraud others of their hard earned resources; a God fearing youth will not engage in terrorist activities. Opting not to serve God is opting to serve the devil and this becomes evident in your way of life.

Any political ambitions? What are your dreams for life?

Hmmm political ambitions, NO! I am informed about politics but not interested in becoming a politician. It’s true that many of my activities especially in my community of origin make many think I might be nursing some political ambitions. I say no because I think I am not made of material for politics. I prefer a quiet life, serving communities for no expectant reward other than the satisfaction I get for doing what I do.I love to see transformed communities. My dream is to be known as a powerful social change actor.

 How do you envisage pursuing this dream?

First of all, I am equipping myself with the requisite know-how. I am studying for another Masters Degree and I have about two more to do God being my helper. Secondly, I have my hands on deck already. Within my community as well as other communities, there are a number of social change projects that have been executed thanks to my help. I have been supporting development projects in about 7 African countries for the last three years and I plan to do more if God gives me the strength.

What is your personal philosophy of life? The philosophy by which you live?

I strongly think that while hard work, focus and persistence are central to success in life, you will get nowhere if you don’t clearly understand that it’s only in working for the interest of others that you work for yourself. It’s only when you put others first that God rewards your efforts and so I approach everything I do from this perspective.

 What are your favorite past times?

I have three of them: reading, writing or drawing (painting)

 Let’s look at your family. You definitely are married and have children. Can you kindly introduce your family?

Sure. I am married to one of the loveliest and most dynamic women in the world. She is a Reverend Pastor and just like me, involved in a number goodwill programs. God has blessed us with three wonderful kids, a boy now in secondary school and two girls both in the primary school. As far as I am concerned, we’ve ended there but you know God has his own plans too.

The family is the foundation of the society. If we have bad families we have a bad society. If we have good families we have a good society. But we know that it is not easy to bring up their families in a way that they will make positive contributions to the society; moreover, we know that marriage is not a bed of roses. What strategies do you use, first of all, to have a successful marriage; and secondly so that your children grow up the right way?

CAM00195 I must say for a busy man like me traveling most of the times, keeping the family going is far from being an easy task. The bottom-line strategy with my wife is that I let her completely into my world. You know there are men out there who are complete strangers to their wives. I can proudly say that my wife knows me warts and all. She knows what I can and cannot do. In fact, she knows all my bank accounts and transactions and so that saves me lots of explanations that often create tension in some marriages. I keep a close eye on my children, each week when I am around. I offer them one day mostly Saturdays for them to do whatever they want with me. That way, I know them and they know me. I want them to be exemplary people in future, so I strive to be as exemplary with them as possible.

 Who is your role model? What do you admire in him or her?

Hahaha that’s a difficult one. I have a number of them. My father is the first. In him, I found all that I needed to be as a man. You are one of them. You can’t imagine the positive influence you’ve had on me over the years. And if I should continue the list, I’ll talk of Martin Luther King Jr, Nelson Mandela, Thomas Sankara and Barack Obama. We all know what they represent. I equally have Muammar Gadhafi; or yes, you got me right; Gadhafi – each time I have mentioned him, people blink at me but I think even if he was controversial on some issues, don’t forget that some people have worked hard at painting him all black. I think he was an outstanding leader as far as the love of his country and the well being of his people were concerned.

 Which are your favorite authors and books?

Norman Vincent Peal: The Power of Positive Thinking; You Can if you Think you Can;
Dale Carnegie: The art of Public Speaking
Napoleon Hill: Think and Grow Rich; the Law of Success
Ngobesing Suh Romanus: A Loving Woman in Tears; Moneyman; Boys Don’t Miss Your way in Life
Frederick Forsyth: The day of the Jackal; the Odessa File; The Devil’s Alternative
James Hadley Chase: No Orchids for Miss Blandish; My Laugh Comes Last; The Way the Cookie Crumbles; A Coffin from Hong Kong; The Sucker Punch etc.
Patrick Snow: Create Your Own Destiny
Maxwell Maltz: Psycho Cybernetics;
David J. Schwartz: The Magic of Thinking Big

What is the one most powerful statement you will like the world to know?
I will like every single person to know that when you were born, every bit of information or skill you need to be successful in life was already coded into your human system. What you become in life depends on how you use this world of infinite possibilities already in you. I believe that is what is confirmed in Psalm 139:13-16.

Your last word to the readers of this interview.
You must have heard about the 80/20 law, it’s no joke. What you become in life is a direct physical representation of the efforts you invest. Underlying each phenotype of success are struggles, pain, sweat and determination. I read that there are no royal roads to success but once you become successful, every single road becomes royal.

I want to thank you immensely for accepting to be my guest on Success Inspirer.20150725_124914

You are welcome!
