The Exam of the African and Malagasy Council for Higher Education (Conseil Africain et Malgache pour l’Enseignement Supérieur – CAMES in French) took place from 11 July to 20 July in Bamako, Mali.
Dr. Owona Nguini is part of the 60% of State Universities teachers who failed the CAMES competitive exam. This exam focused on changing academic degree in two disciplines. Namely: Legal and Political Sciences and Economic and Management Sciences. The newspaper Le Jour edition of August 4, 2016 reported that the specialist in political science contests his failure by suggesting that “the CAMES has been manipulated by his enemies in Cameroon.”
He who is considered one of the best known university teachers applied for the rank of Lecturer of the CAMES. Note that the permanent professor of political science at the University of Yaounde II has the rank of lecturer, that is to say the equivalent of CAMES assistant lecturer. His file was therefore declared “inadmissible for failure to comply with requirements,” we learn.
About this failure, the newspaper wrote, “the concerned sees a “manipulation” orchestrated by his enemies in Cameroon. Dr. Owona Nguini reserves well citation. But he believes that they are well-known academics with a certain power within the CAMES. ” The specialist in political science himself says in the daily newspaper that “They are the same people blocking me in the French aggregation contest.”
By taking this exam, Dr. Owona Nguini said he wanted to escape his enemies that prevent him from getting his French aggregation for years. “Finally, I realize that this is the same thing. There’re people who are remote-controlling the CAMES according to their sympathy or antipathy. ”
