The Executive President of the Cameroon Baptist Convention, CBC, and a host of other senior church officials have described the outgoing Education Secretary, Job Nyanganji Indi, as one of the best Administrator the CBC has ever had.
This was on August 4 in a twin ceremony sending off Job and the induction of new Education Secretary as well as the Youth Director.
The Executive President of the CBC, Rev Dr. Nditemeh Charlemagne appreciated Job for being the greatest gift of God to the CBC.
“Going on a deserved retirement is a big blessing from God,” Rev Dr. Nditemeh said “You are leaving us a happy man and we are proud of you. Going on retirement is not rejection” to him, retirement is just natural.
To the executive President, a great door has been opened for Job. He said life will be more impactful to Job than ever.
“I came to office 33 months ago and for those who know me, if you never performed well and mess us up, I would not hesitate to condemn. You are a General who is retired but on reserve. Allow your doors open. Don’t sell the goat and hold the robe” Rev. Dr Nditemeh, noted.
He thanked Job for excellent results and infrastructural development and above all the inclusive education which is quite successful and in collaboration with the CBC Health Services.
According to the Executive President of the CBC, Job Nyanganji offered the best of his stewardship during this sociopolitical crisis that has been rocking the two Anglophone Regions of Cameroon. During this period, teachers could not be paid and some schools were burnt.
“So Nyanganji went all out in search of partners.” He said adding that they were “grateful to the incoming Education Secretary, Dr Naphtalin Atanga, as well as the new Youth Director, Pastor Eric Sankum, the Executive President called on them to be courageous and not to treat those under their care as slaves, but brothers and sisters.”
“The new Education Boss was reminded of that fitting squarely into Nyanganji,s shoes would not be easy, he was assured of total collaboration from the hierarchy and the entire CBC.
“Talking to Journalists, Dr Naphtalin Atanga, said he will continue to tap from the rich experience of Nyanganji, and Will introduce reforms for the growth of CBC education.”
