You can do so by taking one of the following actions:


Open an account with the Canadian cryptocurrency known as Action Coin, either as an individual or for your business. If you open for yourself, Action Coin credits your account with 100 Action, which is equivalent to 100 USA Dollars. In return, you are required to use the currency and encourage others to do same. In addition, Action Coin advertizes your business on its international advertizing platform without you paying anything extra. The platform is visible in over 200 countries worldwide. I am a Brand Ambassador for Action Coin


This is an international NGO whose objective is to combat poverty by empowering the needy. You make a token one-off financial contribution, get two other people to do they same and they in turn get two others to do the same. You earn bonuses as you go along and your network grows. You can also earn goods like computers, cars and even houses, in addition to other benefits which H2i offers. H2i walks away (so to speak) smiling too because it uses part of that money to run its services but above all, to support the needy around the world. I am Cameroon National Adviser for H2i and Coordinator for the country`s South West Region.

Dear  friends,

I have received numerous messages of congratulations from you on my new position as President and Board Chairman of the Institute of Vocational and Professional Training (IVPROT) based here in Buea , South West Region of Cameroon. As you are so many out there, permit me to send this single message to you all.
IVPROT is indeed a dream come true because it is an opportunity that enables me to combine in a single venture my many years of studies and experience as a teacher of French and Spanish as well as journalism and mass communication, translator-interpreter, practicing journalist and speaker of over ten languages in Cameroon, almost all of Africa and France and Great Britain.

Our institute is the answer to training for the job market not only for young Cameroonians but also young people from other parts of the world. We strive to bridge the gap between provision of skills and the job market. That is why our courses are so streamlined that after one year trainees can obtain the National Diploma (ND) and either immediately create jobs for themselves or they gain employment somewhere else.

Our approach is practical in nature. Holders of the National Diploma (ND) or its equivalent can spend another year and obtain the Higher Professional Diploma (HPD) which is equivalent to the Higher National Diploma (HND) and equivalent to the Francophone Brevet de Technicien Supérieur (BTS). Holders of any of those three qualifications or an equivalent can take another year and prepare for the Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA). Two years after the BBA, they can obtain the Master of Business Administration (MBA).

We are currently running seven departments in which students take general courses and then specialize in one area. These are

(1) Agriculture (Crop production, animal husbandry, poultry farming, fish farming & bee farming)
(2) Secretaryship and office administration (accounting secretaryship, bilingual secretaryship, legal secretaryship & medical secretaryship)
(3)Translation (general translation and specialized translation including public service translation, legal translation, business and economic translation, scientific and technical translation & literary translation)
(4) Journalism (broadcast journalism, print journalism, advertizing and public relations)
(5) Accounting & Finance (computerized accounting, bookkeeping, financial management, banking)
(6)Management (marketing management, insurance, leisure and tourism, hotel management and catering, human resource management, entrepreneurship & business development, business management, logistics and transport, guidance and counselling)
(7) Languages (English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Chinese, Arabic)

Our training for the ND which we are starting in this January 2017 lasts one year and includes internship and the writing of a project. Teaching is done in English. However, applicants who come to us with other languages of instruction such as French, Spanish, Portuguese, etc can start by taking our one-year special English course, after which their level of English will be brought to the level where they can attend lectures in English.

Tuition fee for the year is 150 000 Frs CFA which includes the 15 000 Franc registration fee. In addition, applicants pay 93 000 Frs CFA which covers administrative and student utility (identification card, official wear, basic text books, caution fee which is refundable at end of course, Students Union (IVPROTSU) registration fee, etc). That makes it a total of 243 000 Frs CFA, which is about 375 Euros, or about 310 US Dollars, or about 320 GBR Pounds.

Since we encourage all our trainees to be able to drive by the time they graduate, we require those who do not yet drive to take our driving course up to award of the driver`s licence by the Ministry of Transport for an additional cost of 100 000 Frs CFA.

International students should contact us and check because their fees are different from those stated above.
However, if an applicant is recommended by a friend here on Linkedin, then that applicant will have an automatic discount of 50 000 Frs CFA.

We at IVPROT wish you all a Happy New Year!

AMAZING GRACE: HOW MEN OF GOD GOT IT WRONG FOR 2016: As we are entering the new year 2017, the Nigerian online organ <> has published some prophesies by seven Nigeria top men of ...

samedi 24 décembre 2016


As we are entering the new year 2017, the Nigerian online organ <> has published some prophesies by seven Nigeria top men of God that did not come to pass in 2016 as earlier predicted by them. The leading pastors are (1) Reverend Fr. Ejike Mbaka of the Adoration Ministry (2) Pastor E. A. Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church of God , (3) Prophet T.B. Joshua of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, (4) Apostle Johnson Suleiman of the Omega Fire Ministry, (5) Prophet Joshua Iginla who is General Overseer of Champions Royal Assembly, (6) Prophet Muyideen Kasali who is General Overseer of the Hour of Mercy Prayer Ministry, and (7) Prophet Christopher Owolabi who is Presiding Cleric of Christ Apostolic Church.

Here is what <> says about the botched prophesies, citing The Punch newspaper which researched them and put them together:

" Just as we have new prophecies from various men of God for the new year 2017, there were lots of 2016 prophecies from major men of God that did not come to pass.

The Punch has however collated some of the prophecies by popular great men of God in Nigeria which did not come to pass in 2016. Enjoy below:

1. Buhari may be killed – Father Mbaka

Earlier in 2016, controversial Catholic priest and spiritual leader of Adoration Ministry, Reverend Fr. Ejike Mbaka, raised the alarm over what he says is a plot to assassinate President Muhammadu Buhari in 2016. He said: a plot to assassinate President Muhammadu Buhari in 2016. He said: “Many people are planning, as it is revealed, to kill Buhari. There are many plans on how to eliminate his life so that corruption, embezzlement will continue....By the end of this year, Buhari will expose the names of the people who looted money meant for our roads. What we are suffering now is the resultant effect of the last malignant administration that was intrinsically corrupt. What we are suffering now arose from past administration. But the Lord says there is hope. Many people are going to suffer. We should all get ready. But after the suffering, we will all smile.”

But throughout year 2016, there were no reports of plots to kill the President. Also, the president did not expose the names of looters. Instead, Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo explained that the government did not name the looters because doing so would jeopardize ongoing investigations.

2. New STD will emerge — Pastor E. A. Adeboye

Part of the prophecies that the general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, gave on January 1, 2016 was a new s*xually transmitted disease would surface in 2016. This did not happen. The only new virus that made headline last year was Zika virus - a mosquito-borne flavivirus. 

3. A woman will win US election — T.B Joshua

The general overseer of The Synagogue Church Of All Nations, T.B Joshua, got the attention of everyone in the world when he predicted that Democratic Party candidate, Hillary Clinton, will win the US presidential election but alas, Republican candidate, Donald Trump, won!

4. El-rufai will die if he doesn't revoke preaching law — Apostle Suleiman

Apostle Johnson Suleiman of the Omega Fire Ministry declared that Governor El-Rufai will die if he does not revoke the controversial preaching bill he came up with. During a service, Apostle Suleiman expressed distaste over the bill, noting that such amounted to suppressing the freedom of religion. The state government has not revoked the bill although the noise over it has died down. But el-Rufai is still living despite the non-revocation of the bill.

Also, Apostle Suleiman predicted that except Americans prayed, President Barack Obama would seek third term with a likelihood of the presidential elections not holding. Well, you know the end result as there was no such case of desire for tenure elongation by Obama. Obama even campaigned for his party’s (Democratic Party) candidate, Hillary Clinton, who lost to Trump. At no time, before or during the electioneering was any issue about seeking third term in office raised.

5. The Queen of England may die — Prophet Joshua Iginla

In January 2016, the general overseer of Champions Royal Assembly, Prophet Joshua Iginla, an Abuja-based pastor, also had many predictions which cut beyond Nigeria. Some of the predictions came to pass while one of the most controversial of them was that the Queen of England may die.

He said: “The Queen of England should pray for her health. I see strong challenge and should pray to see the end of the year.” The Queen had a spectacular 90th birthday celebration in the year in review with no major health issue.

Also, Prophet Iginla also said there will be a major stampede at a religious gathering in Zambia which would claim lives. But in 2016, Zambia did not record any ‘major’ stampede at any religious gathering. Instead, it was in India that a major stampede at a religious gathering occurred.

6. Osinbajo may go missing after a meeting — Prophet Muyideen Kasali

The general overseer of the Hour of Mercy Prayer Ministry, Prophet Muyideen Kasali, unveiled some of his prophecies for the year 2016, on January 10. The blind prophet prophesied that Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo would go missing after leaving a meeting.

Well, in the year in review, Osinbajo toured the country and attended several meetings on behalf of the president and nothing happened. Also, the blind cleric said the All Progressives Congress would split into four groups last year due to numerous crisis and 'too much success'. Though there was crisis within the party, the party did not split into four groups throughout the year.

7. Fayose will be removed from office, Peterside will be Rivers governor - Prophet Christopher Owolabi

The presiding cleric of Christ Apostolic Church, Ori-Oke Irapada, Omu-Aran, Kwara state, Prophet Christopher Owolabi, said Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state would be removed from office in 2016 unless he prayed fervently against it. He also said the APC would win the governorship election in Rivers state. But the opposites are what happened. Fayose was not removed from office, and Governor Nyesom Wike of the PDP is still in charge of Rivers state."

I was in a Douala cyber recently when something struck me as being interesting. When I logged into Facebook, I realized that the previous user had not logged out before leaving. But more importantly, I noticed that the customer had been meticulously reading a group discussion on the current strike and the Anglophone problem in Cameroon.

It was the series of exchanges that were sparked by a certain Fomundam when he reacted to Hon Wirba’s parliamentary outburst by criticizing the Honourable Member of Parliament for being all wods and no action. Of course, while some of us felt that the criticisms were in order because they enabled the Honourable gentlemen not to succumb to the dreaded but very common personality cult; some Facebookers felt that the parliamentarian’s performance and motives were so spot-on that any criticism of him was an affront to the entire Anglophone people.
However, the issue was not just that the previous user of the cyber had been following the ongoing debate. It was rather the fact that all the posts on his Facebook page as I saw them, were in all in French. Fomumdam’s rebuttal was in French and all the reactions that followed it right to the most recent were equally in French. That meant that the person who had been reading them was a Francophone who had switched on the Facebook facility for translating the posts and responses from the English in which they had been initially written, into French, in order not to miss anything that was posted on the subject.

What I saw revealed to me that surely, the Francophone who had been at the computer before me could not be the only Francophone in the country interested in what was going on in the Anglophone part of the country. It reminded me of something a taxi driver said to me not so long ago. He said he had noticed that the ongoing strike action and the heightened awareness-creation it generated of the Anglophone problem had led to an upsurge in the number of Francophone Cameroonians seeking to learn English.
“That is no news because a good number of them already have children in purely Anglophone schools”, I remarked dismissively, citing the case of some Francophone colleagues of mine when I was a journalist  at CRTV in Yaounde, who had children in mission colleges in Bamenda, although they themselves could not speak English. The driver agreed with my explanation and added that he personally knew a Francophone minister who had sent his son to study at Sasse College in Buea. By the time such children graduate, their English is as good as that of their Anglophone peers and in addition to that, the Francophones students still have the added bonus of their French still being intact, so to speak, which means that they end up by being very bilingual.

I know that Gabon under its current president, Ali Ondimba Bongo, has also embraced the English language, from a different view point, by adopting it as its second official Language, in addition to French which it inherited from its colonial master, France. The president of Gabon has argued that English is a major international language which would open up unprecedented opportunities for Gabonese people at home and abroad. The Gabonese president formally opened the doors to the English language in 2012. Unfortunately, one would have thought that Cameroonian’s unemployed graduates would be queuing up in large number to seek English teaching jobs in Gabon. But the reality is that such is not the case.

Similarly, in Nigeria in 1996, President SaniAbacha announced that Frenchwould be the country’s second official language. That is not surprising firstly because Nigeria is almost entirely surrounded by Francophone countries. Furthermore, there are many Francophonecountries in the Economic Community (ECOWAS) to which the country belongs and with which it does business on a daily basis.
 Writing in the Nigerian The Guardiannewspaper of today (December 2016), Dr. Stella Omonigho who is a lecturer in the Department of Foreign Languages at the University of Benin in Nigeria said: “Officially, French has been the second official language in this country for the past 19 years. It has also been made ‘compulsory’ in the curriculum of primary and secondary schools across the country. French is also being taught at the tertiary level in the country.Nigerians should not over-flog the notion that there are no benefits in making French a second official language; events have overtaken that. What is most important for us to know at the moment is the importance of bilingualism or multilingualism; that is having good knowledge of at least two international languages. While other neighbouring countries have at least two international languages as their official languages, others have three to four. Nigeria must join her counterparts in the trend of bilingualism, which without doubt, has many benefits.”
The lecturer went on to say “we must understand that being bilingual has a positive effect on our intellectual growth and enhances our mental development. According to Nanduti (2009), ‘being bilingual opens the door to other cultures and helps an individual understand and appreciate people from other countries.’ I can assure you that our political leaders will interact better and exchange better knowledge with their Francophone counterparts without interpreters if they have knowledge of both French and English languages. Nanduti also affirms that being bilingual increases job opportunities in many careers where knowing another language is a real asset.Nigerians will widen their horizon in the labour world with an additional international language such as French, which is the third most spoken language in the world. A lot of internationally based companies, like Total, Exxon Mobil, Air France and KLM advertise for workers from time to time with qualifications including an ability to speak either French and English or English and German. The dearth of these competences poses a great challenge to Nigerian applicants who are limited by their knowledge of only the English language.”
Back here in our own country, Cameroon, we have not been very keen to seek jobs as French teachers in Nigeria, in the light of the golden opportunity which this new development offers us. Yet the few Anglophones from Cameroon who have found themselves there for other reasons, have found that occasionally, they are either being called to teach French here and there or to translate one document or another.
The current struggle for a recognition of rights by Cameroon’s Anglophone people should not exclude a look at the benefits  that lie in embracing French as wells as professions and activities that stem from it as a linguistic tool to greater achievement and self-fulfillment and not just a political cane used to lash relentless whips on hem. Far beyond the sphere of Cameroon, French is not just an international language but a major one.
