BUIB: Former Students Collect Originals of Undergraduate Certificates.

Ex-students of Biaka University Institute of Buea BUIB are gladdened with the availability of their undergraduate certificates after years of waiting. This show of excitement was visible during the handing over ceremony of the certificates to the BUIB Nigerian former students who convene at Rosebud Hotel, Abuja Nigeria, for the collection of this document from the University’s administrative personnel.

At the ceremony, the Vice Chancellor of BUIB Dr. Mrs. Francisca Hongla Biaka via a video call, addressed these students and applauded them for their understanding and maturity exhibited over the years as they waited for this important document. She reassured participants of the University’s Credibility and commitment in serving her students as VIPs while calling on them to remain ambassadors of the institution and be professional in their practice.

In addition, the Special Adviser to the VC/Public Relations Officer Mr Singe Ikome Otto, alongside the Communication and Marketing Manager Mme Fomucha Mirabelle representing BUIB in Nigeria, appreciated these students for their years of patience while reminding them of the process involved in the issuing of original certificates as stipulated by the law governing educational institutions in Cameroon. They reiterated that the delay is no fault of Biaka University Institute of Buea but rather the system put in place by the State mentoring institution which however is under review for better facilitation of the process.

On their part, the students immensely thanked the management of BUIB for this great gesture in displacing her workers from Cameroon to Nigeria for the handing of their certificates. This they noted will go a long way to allow some of them gain work promotion.

August Visit of the Vice Chancellor of UB to BUIB

“I have seen how the vision of an individual can transform the educational landscape. BUIB is a true reflection of President Biya’s Vision for Private Higher Institutions”. These words were echoed by Prof. Ngomo Horace Manga, Vice Chancellor of the University of Buea  (UB) during an official visit to Biaka University Institute of Buea  (BUIB) on September 2nd 2020.

Appearing at BUIB for the first time since his installation as Vice-Chancellor of the mentor university- UB, Prof. Ngomo Horace was amazed as he visited the various structures put in place by BUIB to ensure the effective teaching of students. While visiting the school library, simulation Centre, laboratory, lecture halls and the St Veronica Polyclinic amongst others, the August Guest endorsed that BUIB indeed has the audacity to be different.

The Chair and Vice Chancellor of BUIB in the person of Dr. Mrs Francisca Hongla Biaka while welcoming the guest and his entourage, expressed satisfaction in the mentor/mentee relationship between UB and BUIB that has been in existence since 2007. She reiterated the willingness of BUIB to continue learning from the mother institution for better implementation of the policies guiding Higher Education in Cameroon.

Nevertheless, the Deputy Vice-Chancellor in charge of academic affairs Prof. Fonkeng Epah George while applauding the working relationship between UB and BUIB this far, presented some challenges faced by BUIB including but not limited to the payment of the examination vetting fee at the beginning of the academic year which is often not a true reflection of the total number of students who actually remain with BUIB till the end of the school year.

Responding to this and other issues raised during the visit, Prof. Ngomo Horace Manga promised to visit these concerns and equally reminded the management of BUIB that it is their duty as a mentor institution to assist BUIB in projects that will better the quality of training handed to students. He further pledged the availability of UB at all times to ensure that BUIB achieves its goals and equally called on the BUIB team to remain focus and continue the great works.
