NDES FOUNDATION LEGAL ADVISOR
Reaching out to the needy, the underdogs of the society is a passion Nelson ENYIH has nursed and nurtured for many years beginning in his early life after post graduate studies in law when he served as a social worker in the lone social security institution of his native Cameroon named National Social Insurance Fund.
Spanning a period of four years from 2006 through 2010, he catered for the retired during his work as Old Age and Anticipated Old Age Pension Assessor, victims of work/service accident as Industrial Risk Assesor as well as maternity and related family social security schemes.
He then moved to further serve his country, this time as a member of the judiciary after succesful training at the prestigoeus National School of Administration and Magistracy.
From 2014-2017 he served as State Prosecutor in the Mbam and Inoubou Administrative Division which host a Court of First Instance and a High Court. Charged with the supervision of criminal investigations, prosecution of criminal suspects while ensuring the proper application of the law was a delicate yet privileged position to strike a balance between the weak and strong of the society so the former don't get jungle justiced by the latter.
Since May 2017 he serves in double capacity as a judge in the Mundemba Court of First Instance and Ndian High Court where as arbiter of peace he continues within the confinds of his chambers and service oath to ensure the equality of citizens inter se before the law. Worthy of note is the role played by his office in shaping the future of young precarious citizens during legal causes like custody of children after divorce of their parents, adoption, rehabilitation of young offenders etc
It is therefore not by chance that he is member of the Board of Trustees.
