The Vice Chancellor of the University of Buea, Dr. Nalova Lyonga, has initiated a census to determine the number of students and lecturers attending readings.
The Post Weekender reports that the census is the exact number of students and staff for the academic year 2016/2017.
According to a statement signed by the Vice Chancellor Dr. Nalova Lyonga, all students attending readings would register their names, including that of the lecturer who will submit the attendance sheets to the various faculties.
The Post further reveals that the VC instructed that in case to lecturer the dean of the faculty and Head of Department to witness and record. And should be in the case of the students who are present and the lecturer absent, the students will write down their names and delegate one person to give the Dean who will forward to the authorities.
The Teachers Trade Unions called off the strike last week. Goal SYNES-UB did not sign that document as its president is alleged to be on the run.
However this census has yielded no fruits as the school campus has remained practically deserted. Reports have a lot of people who want to learn what they want to learn.
This brings to question the veracity of University of Buea's commitment in the February 11 celebration as speculations were rife that those who took part in the past were hired elsewhere. Purpose UB authorities have not commented to these allegations.
Classes have been paralyzed since November 21, 2016 when Teachers Trade Unions launched the strike action which has now lasted for three months.
