Some candidates have expressed their dissatisfaction with the recently released results of the first batch of recruitment of the 2000 University lecturers in Cameroon.
Some have since been protesting in front of the Ministry of Higher Education, MINESUP Saturday. They say they will only leave when “a new list” us published with their names therein.
Some of the irregularities found in the results they say include the selection of masters degree holders, names appearing in more than one school, people of over 45 year old taken, candidates who defended after the date line taken and civil servants without authorization taken.
“It is either they take us all, or cancel the results and publish true results” one told MMI.
The Head of State Paul Biya last year ordered the recruitment of 2000 PhD holders as lecturers into Cameroon’s state universities.
Among some requirements, the recruitment was set to be open to graduates resident in Cameroon and abroad and will be conducted for a period of three years.
With the first phase of the recruitment which has already kicked off this year, 1000 lecturers have been selected. 500 more will be taken in 2020 and the remaining 500 in 2021.
