Prof. Akenji, new Vice Chancellor of University of Bamenda

Calm, soft-spoken, extremely reserved and scientifically alert. This sums up Prof. Nkuo Theresa epouse Akenji, the new Vice Chancellor of the University of Bamenda (UBa). 

With the Presidential decree of November 27, 2015, a new chapter has opened at the University of Bamenda with Prof. Nkuo Theresa Akenji rising to the helm of the institution, fondly referred to by stakeholders as “the University of the future.”

Prof Nkuo Theresa relocates to the University of Bamenda from the University of Buea where she was Deputy Vice Chancellor in charge of Internal Control and Evaluation. Born in Wombong, Boyo Division in the North West Region, she is married in Mezam Division, in the same region. 

Prof Nkuo Theresa is a product of Our Lady of Lourdes College, Mankon-Bamenda, Saint Mary of Woods College, Indiana, the State University of New York and the School of Tropical Medicine, Louisiana State University – all in the USA – where she received a PhD in Parasitology and Immunology.

Staring her in the face as she takes up work at the University of Bamenda are challenges of the three-year old institution that is being built from scratch. It is also about a university that is celebrated as a special gift from President Paul Biya to thousands of youths thirsty for Anglo-Saxon university education.

At the Bambili campus of the University of Bamenda and elsewhere on the streets of Bamenda, Prof. Nkuo Theresa is already being celebrated as the one to bring sanity, discipline and excellence to “the University of the future.” From the look of things, the new Vice Chancellor is overwhelmed by her choice by the Head of State to lead the University of Bamenda.
