The budget session for 2017 was an occasion for officials to invite students to return to classrooms.
Speaking after the budgetary session of the University of Buea that held last week, the Vice Chancellor of the university, Prof. Nalova Lyonga said the money will be used to construct more classrooms and setup more laboratories as the need is rife since the university has to carry out research and dispense knowledge. She called on the students and teachers to return to a better state of mind and shun falsehood. “We are hoping that the psychology of the students and the teachers will come back to normal so that everybody can be in class without fear,” she said.
The council which serves as the board of directors of the university also decided to modify the calendar of the academic year, adding six weeks to make up for the time lost due to the strike action. Classes were expected to resume on Monday, February 6th. The council which was meeting in its 33rd session also endorsed the advancement and promotion of some academic staff. Some 28 staff benefitted from advancements whereas 50 were promoted to higher ranks.
