UB Administration Endangers Students/Teachers, Rejects Resit Exam Postponement
By Mbah Godlove
Authorities of the University of Buea say
students and teachers must take part in the resit exams due to start on Tuesday, despite calls from SYNES UB Chapter to postpone the session.
In a strongly worded message circulating on social media, the CPDM Vice Chancellor of the University of Buea, Professor Ngomo Horace Manga emphatically said the exams will go on as scheduled, stating that the institution has been functioning despite the current stalemate.
“We [University of Buea community] have operated in
this climate for the past three years and have from time to time adjusted our Calendars, at the institutional and personal levels, to ensure our academic and research activities respond to the exigencies of quality assurance. Hence, thriving with our students in this climate is not new or news. It is no excuse for the Resit exams not to hold. I urge everyone; teachers and students concerned with Resit to show up for the exams, starting tomorrow, 3rd September, 2019,” he declared
While revealing that the brutal military of La Republique du Cameroun will be brought to saveguard all actors in the resit exams, the VC announced that students need their results to proceed with their studies.
“Students need their degrees as soon as possible to seat for public exams or to do other things.”
On November 21 2016, the uncivic colonial army of Cameroun cracked down on thousands of UB students who protested against the then VC, Professor Nalova Lyonga’s poor leadership and strong resolve to administer Continuous Assessment (CA) examinations,
despite an announced SYNES sit-in.
In the course of the clamps down, students were raped, arrested and detained,
some killed while others’ property were looted.
When SDF Member of Parliament for Jakiri constituency, Honourable Joseph Wirba raised the issue in the La Republique kangaroo Parliament in Yaounde, it was undermined.
All the Octogenarian dictatorial President Paul Biya did was the declaration of war that has claimed the lives of over 2000 Ambazonians.
