Charles Ambassa of the Dynamic Generation Party will steer the activities of the Student Government Association of CUIB this 2016/2017 academic year following his victory at the elections last Friday. He emerged victorious following a fierce one day re-voting of candidates authorized by the President of the Institution Rev. Fr. George Nkeze after both candidates held a tie of 502 votes in the first proclamation. He defeated his opponent Kemayou Brice of the EoC Party in a slight victory: gaining 516 votes for his party as oppose to 514 for the EoC Party.
The newly elected STUGA President in his victory address reaffirmed his party’s vision to make CUIB a place of academic, entrepreneurial, moral and spiritual excellence. “… an arena for VIP’s based on spirituality, skills, talent, education and the application of technology…,” he stated.
He lauded the efforts of Kemayou Brice and the EoC Party and appealed to all for collaboration to attain set goals for the growth of STUGA and the entire CUIB community; saying “… we need to involve everyone, because alone we cannot make it, but with our different abilities put together we can move mountains.”
On his part, Kemayou Brice of the EoC Party expressed gratitude to party members, supporters and the entire CUIB community and promised to work with the party in power for the growth of CUIB.
The President, Fr. George Nkeze praised candidates and their parties as well as the students for their efforts during the entire election process. He expressed satisfaction with the democratic course of the election and the amiable exchange between the two contestants. “CUIB will take the lead in bringing democracy to Cameroon; seeing a candidate accept defeat and congratulating the victor in an election is phenomenal,” he said proudly.
