UB Science Faculty celebrates silver

Though with enormous challenges on their way to drumming 25 years of existence in the University of Buea, especially with the fast pace evolution of science in the developed and emerging countries, coupled with the complexity of nature and Cameroon’s feet dragging in the third world, the Faculty of Science still promises to hit emergence hard, by the year 2035.
This determination was showcased during events marking its 25th anniversary recently, under the theme: ‘25 years of Service to Humanity and Perspectives for Emergence.’
During the celebrations on the university campus, graced by the Vice chancellor of the University of Buea, UB, Professor Horace Manga, former Vice Cchancellor of the University of Buea Professor Vincent Titanji, and other bigwigs, the Faculty of Science boasted being one of the best Faculties to have produced excellent graduates who can defend their certificates wherever they are needed.
However, the Faculty officials complained of lack of infrastructure and equipment to carry out research, experiments and analyses. During an interview with the Vice Chancellor Professor Horace Manga, he never denied the grumbles of the Faculty but, instead went further to admit that most of the equipment in the Faculty of Science are rewards to personal dynamism of the professors at that Faculty, through which they have been able to have research and analytical equipment, “but this is not to say that Government has not been equipping the Faculty; Government has always provided funds, even built a laboratory and equipped it,” he noted.
He stressed that he expects the Faculty to be at the forefront to match its evolution of science. “We don’t want them to be derailed. The Faculty of Science should translate their theory into practice, to benefit the environment.”
Professor Titanji Vincent, Emeritus Vice Chancellor on his part, warned students and all scientists not to try to bend facts, to suit their opinions. “I just observed that many female scientists are very humble and generous. To follow their footsteps you must think of Intellectual humility,” he noted. He also made known the fact that, nature knows better than human, and advised if one has an idea but observations are showing that that idea isn’t very good, one has to abandon it.
