Cameroon Journal, Bamenda – While schools all over the Northwest and Southwest Regions remain closed in observance of a strike action that has been ongoing in Anglophone Cameroon since November 21, 2016, administrators at Bamenda University appear bent on making every effort to get students of the institution return to the classroom
The director of the Higher Technical Teachers’ Training College (HTTC), Bambili, Akume Daniel has published a communique on campus that reads in part, “Levels 300 and 500 students are by this communique informed that their Semester One examination shall run from 15th to 20th February, 2017, beginning each day at 7:00AM prompt…”
The communique dated February 8th goes on to add that students must be in class 30 minutes before the start of the examination.
Reacting to the communique that went viral on social media, most Anglophones made a mockery of the communique saying that Akume will have to go from door to door to get students to sit for the examinations.
It is being reported that Northwest Governor, Lele L’afrique in a similar highhanded tone has recently said schools must resume with or without the strike action.
