During the 2013 Cameroon People's Democratic Movement (CPDM) nomination process for the Cameroonian legislature, the list that Nkodo Dang led was initially disqualified in favor of that of Jean-Claude Bekolo Mbang. However, the work of Nkodo Dang in the Pan-African Parliament allow him to consider becoming president. The CPDM, under pressure from Cavaye Yeguié Djibril, President of the Assembly, decided to disqualify Bekolo Mbang's list and requalify that of Nkodo Dang. In the election Nkodo Dang returned to his seat at the National Assembly.
Nkodo Dang is a member of the yebekolo ethnic group.
