The Minister of Higher Education, Prof Jacques Fame Ndongo has dismissed rumours that graduates of the six higher teachers' training colleges in the country will not be immediately integrated into the Public Service. Minister Fame Ndongo explained that the information circulating was misleading and false. He stated that graduates of the six higher teachers' training colleges in the country will continue to benefit from direct recruitment into the Public Service at the end of their studies.
Minister Jacques Fame Ndongo who had a chat with journalists from state radio and television, mentioned that unlike in the medical field where those to be recruited must pass a national exam, those from the teachers' training colleges will be recruited directly as has been the case in the past. The rumours came from the omission of a certain article on the communique launching the entrance exams into the institutions. The Minister’s clarification seems to have rekindled the hopes and aspirations of those who have written or plan to write the entrance examination into the six teacher training colleges in Yaounde, Maroua, Douala, Bambili and Kumba.
