The President of the Republic has just ordered the recruitment of 2,000 university lecturers.
The recruitment that will run for three years is a timely response by the Head of State to the expectations of the youths.
It is also a materialisation of the President of the Republic’s declaration during his inaugural address at the National Assembly on November 6, 2018.
President Paul Biya asked the youth not to lose hope. “I understood your deep desire for change, that opens the doors to the future and allows you to flourish,” he added.
November 13, 2018, he ordered the recruitment of 2,000 lecturers for the eight state universities of Cameroon which illustrates his drive to resolve the thorny equation of unemployment.
The recruitment is open to Cameroonians in the country and in the diaspora. These are stable and prestigious jobs that will allow holders of PhD to have a place in the lecturer in one of the state universities.
The recruitment constitutes a qualitative and quantitative lead in training within Cameroonian universities.
Since his taking of office in 1982, President Paul Biya held training and employment of youth youth at high esteem. This could be illustrated by the creation of the Ministry of Higher Education, Scientific and Technical Research in 1984.
On January 19, 1993, the university reform was born, with the creation of six state universities and university institutes of technology. The goal is to train people who can easily fit into the workforce.
