The Vice Chancellor of the University of Bamenda, Prof. Theresia Nkuo Akenji has assured Cameroonians that she would continue with the infrastructural development of the institution even after the University games that her institution is hosting.

She was speaking at the campus of UBa on Thursday April 27 on the 6th of the 8 day competition bringing together over 3000 athletes from both state and private higher institutions of learning.

Prof. Nkuo said the government has already made all the financial disbursement for the completion of these projects and there is no reason why it should be abandoned. This was in response to fears by the public that some of the uncompleted projects like the roads in and around the campus and the Olympic stadium would be abandoned to it fate once the games are done with on Saturday April 29.

She explained that UBa found it very hard when it was chosen to host the 2017 U-Games back in 2016, but today that decision has proved to be a blessing. She thanked all who worked tirelessly to see this realization. To the athletes she praised their performance with the 8 medals won this far and promised that henceforth UBa will not participate in the games as players but a true competitors.

Visiting delegations to Bamenda have been full of admiration at the beauty of the university embellished by these sporting infrastructures realized within a short period of less than a year.  Though the games started before some of the grounds to host the games were completed, the face of the university has been completely transformed by these projects, giving UBa the look of a “University of the Future”
