The second consignment of the presidential gift of laptops to students of higher education in Cameroon has arrived Yaoundé.
The Minister of Higher Education, Professor Jacques Fame Ndongo received the 40 thousand computers at the Yaoundé Nsimalen International Airport on Christmas day.
The Kenya cargo aircraft made its second landing with PBHEV computers at about 9:15. At the foot of the plane was the Minister and his close aids. He greeted the pilot before proceeding to inspect the new arrival before offloading.
Unlike the first consignment stored at the military airbase, the Presidential Guard was at the airport to transport the computers to their base in Melen in view of distribution.
Prof Jacques Fame Ndongo told the press that the distribution process of the 80 thousand already in Cameroon begins this Tuesday 26th December 2017 at 11:00 am at the University of Yaoundé I. The distribution caravan goes to University of Yaoundé II on Wednesday.
The Minister indicated that only students registered through the biometric system will benefit from the Paul Biya Higher Education Vision Computers.
The presidential gifts will also be distributed to students of the Universities of Bamenda, Buea and Douala by the end of January 2018 while the universities of Maroua, Ngaoundere and Dschang will wait for the next consignment of 100 thousand computers expected in Cameroon between February and March 2018.
The last load of 220 thousand expected between April, May and June 2018, will be handed to private higher institution, the E-National Higher Education Network and the Cameroon-Congo interstate university in Sangmelima.
