Cameroon: Supplying Energy To Secondary Schools

It is the outcome of an agreement signed between the Minister of Secondary Education and two private specialised companies last April 8 in Yaounde.

One of the main challenges Cameroon is facing today is that of power supply. And this problem does not spare any sector. For a country engaged in a development process, it is important to ensure the good performance of its educational system; which requires electricity.

It is within this frame that the Minister of Secondary Education, Pr Nalova Lyonga proceeded to the signing of an agreement with two Cameroonian companies namely, TakuEnergy and LMK Energy. The convention aims at implementing solar energy in all secondary schools in Cameroon, both for public and private institutions .A substitute to electrical energy which is constantly lacking.

“We already have an electrical energy deficit in Cameroon and this project will give the opportunity to students to follow their courses online whether there is electricity or not,” explained Hamadou Soufou Yanou, General Manager of TakuEnergy.
Thanks to this agreement, several solar panels are said to be installed in each multimedia room.

Minister Nalova Lyonga during the signing used the opportunity to prescribe quickness and professionalism to all the stakeholders involved in this project.
