Becky Limunga Efffoe:knighted
The  noticeable commitment to nation-building of the soft-spoken  Director of Intensive Vocational Training Center (IVTC) Buea,seems to be  catching  more and more the attention of the State of Cameroon.

     Madam Becky  Limunga Effoe, aged 58,has  in  a period of five years  and  in her capacity as Director of IVTC,Buea, been honoured with three different categories of state medals,especially in a country where many work  for decades and go on retirement without such honour.

     As Cameroonians celebrated their 43rd National Day (May 20) yesterday, this ever-smiling head of the state-owned vocational training centre,was among hundreds of meritorious public  servants  nation-wide who were  decorated with  state medals.

     Auntie Becks,as she is fondly called,got her medal  awarded to her  at the Buea Independence Square  popularly called Bongo Square,by Bernard Okalia Bilai,Governor  of  Southwest Region of Cameroon.

      This time Auntie Becks was decorated with the Knight of the Cameroon Order of Valor.

 In 2014 she was decorated with the Officer of Cameroon Order of Merit medal  and in 2010,Madam Becky Effoe was honoured with the title of  knight of the Cameroon Order of Merit.

     At a party she threw at her home to share the joy of the state honour with guests,Madam Becky Effoe ,who is a  native of Buea and Baptist Christian, attributed her successes in life to the hand of God.
    Vocational Training Center (IVTC) Buea  offers  specialized diploma courses  for a  duration of nine months, in several  specializations,such as : Bilingual Secretary ship, Office Automation secretary,Computer Maintenance & Repairs, Accounting Secretary, Computerised Accounting and Management
