UB VC launches treatise on Public Administration

Pontificating against the backdrop of lapses and decaying public administration in Africa and Cameroon in particular, Professor James Arrey Abangma under the patronage of the Vice Chancellor of the University of Buea, Professor Ngomo Horace Manga, launched a book, titled, Comparative Public Administration, Theory and Behavior on Thursday April 25. This 12 chapter- book to him will feed public administrators, students, politicians and any other group of interest. Cameroon will fall under the French system with the English system neglected. Cameroon is still undergoing a transition because it is the emergence of two cultural groups all practicing the French system of administration.
According to Professor James Abangma, the problem the book seeks to address is that, “if the administrator is left on his own, his power will be unlimited. So what measures have been put in place to cub the power of the administrator? So he examined the parliament, the cabinet of ministers, Pressure groups, the court, and all other organs.
During an interview with The Rambler, in reaction to chapter six of his 12 chapter’s book, which talks about feudalism, patrimonialism and others, Professor Abangma, insists that, Cameroon will fall under the French system with the English system neglected. “Cameroon is still undergoing a transition because it is the emergence of two cultural groups all practicing the French system of administration,” he noted.
In his remarks, the Vice Chancellor appraised the initiative of the author but, pointed out that Professor James Abangma, was a little timid in bringing out the flaws of the public administration, during the question and answers session or did not want to criticize the public administration which he has served in.
Nevertheless, Professor James Abangma, said, his book, seeks to fill all the loopholes in public administration while the Vice Chancellor insisted Abangma’s work should not only be consumed and kept, but should serve as a source of inspiration for other people to produce their own books or why not improve on the book.
