He’s defended his PhD thesis in the Department of Geography of the Faculty of Letters and Social Sciences, University of Dschang. Closed to 400 pages of work titled: Climate Variability And Water Resource Management By Pastoralists In The Nkambe Plateau Of North West Cameroon: Constraints, Adaptations And Prospects.

Julius Tata Nfor‘s defense had Prof. Kuete Martin(UDS)  and Dr. Achankeng Eric(Uba) as supervisors, Prof. Bring Christophe(UNdéré) and Prof. Lambi Cornelius(UB) as members of Jury and Prof. Tsalefack Maurice(UDS) as the President of the Jury. The defense lasted from 2:57pm to 5:54pm at the Conference Hall of the Faculty of Law and Political Science.

It’s worthy to know that Julius Tata Nfor(now Dr. Julius Tata Nfor) is the first anglophone to defend a PhD thesis in the Department of Geography, University of Dschang since it’s creation in 1993. You’ll accept with me if you know him that, Julius Tata Nfor aka JT is a very hardworking man. I stayed with him during my first and second years here in Dschang and I know when he reads.

Without dwelling much on the content of his work, Dr Julius Tata Nfor is that man we can put our weight behind; he’s got a good knowledge of the environment of Nkambe and the increasing environmental threats that have closed to a decade now been identified as a top level worldwide problem.

Dr Julius Tata Nfor is in the right position to deal with the current farmer-grazier related problems and the recent hijack of farmers lands in the North West region of Cameroon by the so called wealthy elites.

Following suggestions, critics and corrections made by the jury, the final document is expected to witness some modifications. 

He’s been awarded Mansion Très Honorable.

We’ll one day celebrate Professor Julius Tata Nfor.

Congratulations sir!

You’re an inspiration for struggling anglophones in Dschang, Africa and the world.

Bondu Oyeeeeeee.

    Operation 500,000 laptops for University Students in Cameroon: A hopeful step for students of the University of Dschang begins with the publication of lists of eligible students(photos)

    The University of Dschang main way in.

    Eight months after it was announced that each University student in Cameroon will take home a laptop computer thanks to what is termed Operation one student, one computer, many critics still say that the issue of laptops was a scam with political motives. Almost eight months gone, many students have been yielding to such assertions by critics. The reason here is that the laptops were meant for the 2016/2017 academic year which is about three months to it’s end. Some had even said that each student will be required to present his/her voter’s card before given a laptop.

    However, the University of Dschang through its various faculties(now called Schools) have this Friday morning published a long list of students who are eligible for the much awaited laptops. Though it’s not certain when the laptops will meet students of the University, some class delegates have said that after the publication of the lists, eligible students will have to copy their matriculation numbers and the code attached to each student’s name and take it to the computer centre of the faculty concerned. At the computer centre, the students will be registered and given serial numbers which will have to be deposited in their respective faculties for onward transmission. The process may seem long but one thing is for sure; we’ll sooner or later have the laptops.
