By Bakah Derick

After laying the foundation Stone of the National Center for Youth and Sports CENAJES Bamenda in 2005, Sports and Physical Education Minister Bidoung Mpkatt returned to Bamenda in the same capacity Friday October 23, 2015 that is ten years later to preside at the diploma award ceremony of the 9th batch of Students of the institution.

Welcoming the Minister to Bamenda, Jude Waindim Secretary General to the Bamenda City Council on behalf of the Government Delegate regretted that the institution that hosted the 57 graduates did not have the bright physical image expected for the holistic formation of future sports men and women. Coming at the time the Cameroon Football Federation FECAFOOT palaver has been put under cover check, Jude Waindim reminded the Minister for Sports that though with the challenge of organizing the 2016 and 2019 African Nation Cups, he is not Minister for football and consequently should look into the improvement of infrastructure and personnel at CENAJES Bamenda and other sport sectors.

Nsoh N. Michael Director of the Institution presented facility lacking in infrastructure and basic facilities like telephone, means of transport, cords and fields, fence, computers and much more. While assuring the minister and parents of qualitative products leaving the school, the Director edged the students to be facilitators of Cameroon’s emergence, obedient and respectful.

Addressing the event, Minister Bidoung Mkpatt admonished the young instructors to be responsible Cameroonians and proof to the head of state that they are worthy of his trust. While encouraging the new graduates to be ambitious by continuing studies in the higher institutes for sports and physical education INJS Yaounde so as to meet the ever growing need in the country, the minister noted that it is important to be exemplary models. According to Minister Bidoung Mpkatt complaining is unnecessary but rather integrates the acquired skills at the various levels of education.

Prior to the Ministers speech the 31 senior instructors and 28 instructors of sports and physical education received their diplomas from the minister and other administrators present.

Richard Kings, the students, traditional dance groups and other artists graced the solemn event with outstanding songs, playbacks and sketches.

The Minister before leaving for Yaounde visited the Bamenda Sports Center for a first hand appraisal.
