These lecturers whose presence in the University of Maroua saw the transfer of Chinese students from the University of Yaounde, dished their lectures using innovative media platform resources that were just the perfect tools for an emerging Cameroon.
Finally, their departure affects not only the University students, but also about 90 others of the Higher Teacher's Training (ENS).
The Rector of the University Prof. Edward Oben Ako said the departure of these Chinese lecturers is for precautionary measures, as most embassies have already pulled out their citizens on duty from this danger zone until calm returns.
Prof Oben also appealed to the three students enrolled for PHD in Chinese Language, to come and support the remaining four lecturers, so that the students could maintain their educational trends till the end of the academic year.
