A photo exhibition in honour of the late Deputy Secretary General at the Presidency took place at the International Relations Institute of Cameroon (IRIC). It is said a picture is worth a thousand words. The over two dozen photos exhibited in lecture hall AB2 of the International Relations Institute of Cameroon, yesterday June 1, 2016, in honour of late Prof. Peter Agbor Tabi, former Deputy Secretary General at the Presidency of the Republic and the Board Chairman of the University of Yaounde II, spoke volumes of his stewardship at IRIC as Director as well as Minister of Higher Education.
The pictorial exhibition to pay tribute to the fallen university don was opened by the Secretary General in the Ministry of Higher Education, Prof. Horace Manga Ngomo, in the presence of the Rector of the University of Yaounde II, Soa, Prof. Ibrahima Adamou, staff and students of IRIC. The Director of IRIC, Pierre Emmanuel Tabi, led officials into the exhibition hall where he explained the importance of some of the photos. The pictures essentially showed his administrative life as Director of IRIC, Minister of Higher Education and Honorary Director as well as his academic life as lecturer in the institution.
Some of the pictures as Director of IRIC were taken when he received the then Higher Education Minister, Abdoulaye Babale, the then Deputy Secretary General of Organisation of African Unity (OAU) Tiendreberogo amongst others. Other pictures such as those he chaired a jury of PhD defence and dispensing lectures portrayed his academic life in IRIC. Meanwhile a condolence register has been opened at the Institute.
