On October 21, 2021, an alert from Minister of Higher Education (MINESUP) Jacques Fame Ndongo was read on state radio. The MINESUP informed citizens that individuals, still unidentified, claiming to be agents from the MINESUP or the Ministry of Finance (MINFI) have been calling citizens asking them to pay some huge amounts to get their career-related cases and claims for salary arrears approved.
For the MINESUP, this is just a scam scheme. So, he invites users of his Ministry to resist those extortion tactics and notify the assistant director in charge of salaries and pensions, through the number 222 22 19 04, of anyone trying to get paid for administrative documents and services that are free of charge.
Jacques Fame Ndongo indicates that people indulging in such acts expose themselves to sanctions provided by Cameroonian laws. "Ongoing investigations will expose these lawless individuals who are out to tarnish the image of the MINESUP,” he assured.
