“It is a dream come true.” It is no longer a secret that the main road leading right into the University campus and passing by the CPC main gate and stretching right into, and overlooking the Classroom Building Block will soon be tarred. It all happened when in December 2011 CCU hierarchy applied to the Minister of Public Works for the tarring of the more than 2 kilometre road from Njenka into the University campus. After waiting for a while, the Minister granted us audience on 24th January 2012 and promised that he will do everything in his powers to see that the road is tarred not only because the Church is also training Cameroonians but also as an expression of the Government of Cameroon’s kick-start participation and contribution to the development of CCU.
On 13th February 2013, to our greatest amazement and without notice caterpillars commenced bulldozing work on the road from Njenka into the CPC/CCU campuses. So far, a lot of the work has been done with respect to the bulldozing, the filling of the road with laterite and the building of four concrete culverts. The tarred road is expected to be of high quality filled up of 8cm laterite, 15cm of gravel and a code of 2cm hard core tar. Within the constraints of the project and in terms of its width (6m) and length of 2 kilometres the road, when completed is estimated to cost more than CFA 150 million francs.
With God being on our side and with the rains finally gone away, it is hoped that by end of December 2013 the muddy and the dusty road from Njenka to CCU/CPC campuses during the rainy and dry seasons respectively will soon be history. The CCU for the PCC is a ‘leap in faith’ project or simply put, “It is God’s Project” and there are likely to be many more infrastructural development surprises to come in the days ahead.
