The Catholic University Institute of Buea on Friday 21st December 2018 officially graduated 442 students from its different schools and colleges in an event that saw the presence of the representative of the South West Governor, Hon Enow Tanjong, Senator Mbella Moki Charles, and some other top ranking officials from the government and private sectors within and out of Cameroon.
The Keynote speaker, Mr. Roland Kwemain at the CUIB 2018 commencement ceremony, captioned his talk “The Impact of One” in which he pointed out to the graduates that the only way to succeed in life is to have self-confidence and to do things with the fear of God.
He highlighted that change begins from an individual before moving to the society and the students must first of all be the change they want to see in the society and do things that will produce good results without compromising their values.
“Do what you preach, always try to keep your words, don’t make promises that you cannot keep for it takes the determination of just one person to bring positive change to the society for if you are determined, the impact will be visible in your environment. Always learn to trust and belief in yourself that you can bring the change the society needs” Mr. Roland Kwemain told the CUIB graduates.
The 442 graduates were titled the “Ground Zero Batch” by the President/Pro-Chancellor of CUIB Rev.Fr. George Nkeze Jingwa whomin his opening remark began by appreciating the contribution made by the graduating students and their parents to make CUIB the place for excellence.
Rev. Fr. George outlined the CUIB new strategic vision in which he pointed out that CUIB will focus on Virtue, Entrepreneurship, and Wealth Creation. He noted that CUIB will continue to train students with good character, ethics, and resilience that will determine the path way to success.
On Entrepreneurship, CUIB will continue to train students who will be creative disrupters in an era where innovations are indispensible. Hence, CUIB will focus on empowering students with a business mindset to be innovators in a continuously changing landscape.
At the level of Wealth creation, CUIB will continue to train Job creators and Job seekers who will contribute positively to the development of the society.
Fr. George enjoined the graduates to always make sure that they kick the box out when they are in their different areas of work and should always avoid the ABC syndrome which is to Accuse, Blame and condemn but rather should be creative disruptors who are solution providers in an increasingly changing world.
