The big question of who will be “the voice” of CUIB students for the 2018-19 academic year is yet to be answered. While the entire student body remains anxious to elect their representative, three parties are on the race to the House of power that will govern the students for this academic year. The presidential contestants are Ojong Bissong Etang Agbor Anyaha senior year student of the School Of Business representing the Economy of Communion Party, Bisse Rosaline Wilfried representing Saints and Scholars party and Ngwet Umrene for the Progress Alliance party.
These parties are currently on a campaign to cajole fellow students for their votes which stands as the only indicator of success in the competition.
However, the sweet talks from the presidential candidates would not be enough to give them victory as they will have to prove their worth at the forthcoming presidential debates scheduled to begin on Wednesday November 28th at the CUIB Buea campus.
The series of debates will be crowned with an online voting which will determine the winner who will eventually be installed by the University’s authorities with a one year mandate to run student’s affairs and serve as a liaison between students and management.
For students to be eligible to run for the position of STUGA President, these conditions amongst others must be met: they must be senior year students who are academically sound with a GPA of at least 3, fluent in both English and French languages and be a dully registered and bonafide student.
The CUIB student Government Association STUGA is a governing body structured to represent student’s opinions and to protect them in the best possible ways without compromising the values of the university.
