Bahr El Ghazal University graduates over 230 students


By Ngor Arol Garang

January 27,2010 (KHARTOUM) — Authorities at the campus of Bahr el Ghazal University in Wau, one of the three southern universities, have confirmed graduation of over 230 students with honours and diplomas on 23 January 2010.

Attended by family members, government officials; sponsors of individual students at the university, the celebrations started on 23 January 2010 and ended today on Wednesday 27.
The head of preparatory committee of the graduates, Meyen Kuol, a native of the oil rich region of Abyei, said 230 students were graduated from the faculties of education, economics and public health.

He said each and every one of them, referring to the new graduates sounded hopeful with commitments and determinations to use the years they spent pursuing knowledge in various fields to develop the former war ravaged region of South Sudan.

"The reason why I spent four years pursuing college degree, it was about knowledge to help in the reconstruction of our region and particularly my home state of Northern Bahr el Ghazal," said Thomas Mou Kuan Adim, graduating with honour in economics and social studies.

Mou said he is more than happy to have been graduated successful after four years of struggle, adding he is glad to contribute the desperately needed development in the region with relevant knowledge.

However, he was to mention that although he is graduated, there are still many people probably estimated to be about 1.5 million in South Sudan who need primary education alone. Many are out of schools because of war and the lack of qualified teachers to teach in schools mostly in remote areas.

Many of these people mainly children returned from the neighbouring countries following signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement in the Kenyan capital of Nairobi five years ago ending the 21 year long civil war between the north and south.

But being cognizant of significant of education, and as alternative to meeting basic need of people of South Sudan, the regional ministry education, science and technology of the government of south, designed a program entitled GO TO SCHOOL, an initiative meant to encourage more children have access to qualify primary education and succeed in school commitments.

Reading the congratulatory message on behalf of the Western Bahr el Ghazal governor, the State Minister of Information, Efisio Kon urged both students and graduates to effectively participate in the upcoming general elections.

"Because of the knowledge you have now, I urged you to properly make use of it in the upcoming elections and other events thereafter," he said. He also advised young graduates to go ahead with their education. Degree is not the last level in the educational system; there are levels you need to pursue to be academicians, he said.

    Well done graduates, we need more educated people in southern Sudan for the betterment of our country. But do not use your education to divide south Sudan people like what has been done by Dr. Riek Machar and Dr. Lame Akol.

        First of all, I am not arguing with anybody specially you. I did not direct my comment to anybody.

        Telling the truth is what make me zero brain. What I wrote in my previous comment makes sense. Correct me if Dr. Riek and Dr. Lam did not use their education to divide South Sudan People in 1991 and even today they are still dividing south Sudan people.

        You want me to praise them for causing the division within the SPLM/A. For your information those two Drs almost destroyed the SPLM/A. If it was not the commitment of Dr. John Garang with his followers we would not have the CPA today. Go head praise Dr Riek Machar and Dr. Lam Akol but I am not praising either one of them.

          Dr. John Garang and his henchmen started the division back in 1983. when they launched unecessary assaults against Anya Anya II and killed a great nationalist like Gai Tut. so stop this crap and start trelling the truth about your failed policy so called United Sudan at the expense of the South.

      None of people of south Sudan will accept a Dikasim or nepotism they played for years. If any of them will played the same things Dinkas are playing then he or she will disagree with that nepotism you are playing. No matter of what neither by bulled or be willing of all Southern not the will of dinkas period.

    Three South Universities

    I don’t even waste my time congratulating those students, ask me why?

    1) ask one student to write an application, and you will see that primary school student writes better than university leaver.

    2) I met many university students especially Juba, Baher El Ghazal, Upper Nile & Khartoum, but gain to experience, I don’t know how they obtained those big degrees including masters with ZERO knowledge.

    3) Universities in Sudan are turn to SEX FINDING places. Let any one visit one of the universities and see how students study, just in twos, a boy and a girl. Why not studying in groups? I obtained information from a lecturer last year that in every 10 girls in University, 2 abote children every month. Shame on girls pretending to be studying!!!! That’s why they take too lOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOng to finish their studies, just attention on how to get sex, wow my God, help these poor girls!!!

    The Government should not waste it time and resources employing such graduates, better send them to technical colleges for two years to consolidate their former studies.

    Anyway, I don’t put much blame on the students but poor teaching and system as well.

      Good on you Jech Amer, our females shouldn’t be used that way, unwanted pregnancy is a disaster to the young females, big institutions like Universities should have at least well defined policies toward unwanted sex at schools. Our females are still believing that they can only bribe the source of power by providing sex to those big pose holders, and this is a very big crime to those big pose holders. Those of whom you mentioned to have involved in unwanted pregnacy, might be victimised by their lecturers. shame indeed!
      You are a good boy.

      Dear Red Army "Jech Amer"

      You have to be balanced and fair when criticising those students. Your argument were directed toward girls only. You should’ve talked about boys too. Girls are not source of pregnancy alone, boys have a big role in that too. So be fair, and don’t lashed out for girls only.

          Dear Kalo,

          Prostitution is stemmed from many factors. As you put it for example, some girls look for the money, and I say some boys look for lust. Therefore, there’s a prostitution in both sides.
