MINESUP Visits NPUI
(By Ephraim Banda Ghogomu, PRO-NPUI)
The Minister of Higher Education and Chancellor of Academic Orders, Prof. Jacques Fame Ndongo, paid a brief but historic visit to National Polytechnic Bamenda. It was historic because it was the first time that the Minister visited the university since its creation some 20 years ago.
On that occasion, he paid glowing tribute to the founder and proprietor of NPUI, his “friend and brother, Francis Yong”, whose statue he unveiled before inaugurating the 3-floor new Central Administrative Building. He also congratulated those persons (NPUI Management Board) now carrying on the good work begun by Pa Yong Francis.
The Minister who was accompanied by top officials including North West Governor Adolphe Lele Lafrique and the Vice Chancellor of the University of Buea, Prof. Nalova Lyonga, admonished the students to make optimum use of the opportunities and facilities that NPUI offers in order to be ready to successfully take charge of the future of our dear country – Cameroon.
The Management Board was strongly represented by Members in charge of Infrastructure and Development, Mr. Michael Ayeah Yuh, International Relations, Mr. Jacques Yong, and Construction Pa Charles Yong.
PA YONG FRANCIS (1945-2013)

This statue was unveiled by His Excellency Prof. Jacques Fame Ndongo, Minister of Higher Education and Chancellor of Academic Orders, 14/12/2015
