Emmanuel is a son of the soil who after staying in the United States of America for many years returned home to his people with an individual initiative to put smiles on their faces.
An enthusiastic atmosphere was observed amongst the teachers and most especially the pupils upon the sight of the materials brought fought by the professor as they were visibly clapping and jumping on their feet, an indication that they were happy not only to receive their elite but a man whose books are being used by the same school.
Before presenting the gifts to the school, Prof Emmanuel, who is a senior international communication expert, took out time to instill educative and moral values in the pupils. He stressed on the importance of education in today’s society and enjoined them to take their studies seriously. To achieve a brighter future, he added entails respect for oneself, respect for elders, teachers, the administration and above all seeking the face of the lord in every difficulties and every situation of life.
According to the media management and advocacy expert, the development of any community depends on the collective effort of people leaving in that area. His laudable initiative according to him, is aimed at enabling the pupils to grow up and become better persons in society so that they can be able to do unto others what he had done to them triple folds.
To match words with action, Prof Emmanuel who is a lover of football and sports in general donated a football and sports jerseys to the primary school’s team. Carefully selecting the choice of jersey, the learned professor chose that belonging to a France based team dubbed Paris St Germaine which he said is one of the best performing team that sees victory and success as their watchwords. In like manner, the sports promoter would love the same spirit to reign amongst the pupils.
Handing over the items to the vice headmaster of the said school, he said “football is a very good and unifying game; a way to socialize and relate with one another. I call on all of you to use this medium to build sustainable friendship amongst yourselves for a better tomorrow”.
Besides the ball and jerseys, the pupils equally received some didactic materials like pens, pencils amongst others. As if that was not enough, pupils received with delight when the communication expert announced his willingness to pay the school fees of meritorious pupils in each class come next academic year 2015. He urged the pupils to work harder and grab the opportunity. He also promised to pay the fees of pupils from very poor homes whose parents barely manage to send them to school.
Thanking the august guest on behalf of the school, the vice head master, Suh Alfred Yuh heaped encouraging words to him saying that God will shower his blessings upon him for a better Cameroon tomorrow.
Coming back to his homeland with such an astounding initiative, Prof Emmanuel believed that education begins in the home and he had come to continue the works of his father who was the pioneer headmaster and teacher of the said primary school and a lover and promoter of community development. Carrying out such a gesture for the second time, Prof Emmanuel intends to continue on a yearly basis for the growth and development of his community.
He equally paid a courtesy visit on the Njinikom Catholic Orphanage where he offered some financial assistance to the children.
