Gabon: UOB teachers for EAFDL soldiers

From the start of the 2023-2024 academic year, trainee officers at the Libreville Forces and Defense Administration School (EAFDL) will benefit from master’s training given by teachers from the Omar Bongo University (UOB) . The subject was the subject of a framework signature between the two entities on Friday September 8.

The rector of the Omar Bongo University (UOB), Professor Mesmin Noël Soumaho, proceeded, on September 8, 2023 in Libreville, to the signing of a framework agreement with the commander of the School of Administration of the Forces and Defense of Libreville (EAFDL), Colonel Éric Ivala Yomba. The agreement will allow trainee officers from this military school to strengthen their capacities in the field of administrative management with UOB teachers from the next school year. These teachers will give lessons in the premises of the military administration school.

“ It is an honor for the Omar Bongo University to contribute to strengthening the training capacities, not only of the Gabonese military but this school of Forces administration and defense in Libreville also welcomes military personnel from sister countries, ” declared Professor Mesmin Noël Soumaho, specifying that the UOB partnership and training schools for the Defense and Security Forces started a few years ago with the School of Application of Military Health Services and will continue with the School headquarters in Libreville.

The EAFDL Defense and Security Forces will therefore now benefit from quality university training. “ This school offers its residents training in administrative management techniques. Beyond military training for our officers, we will not always have to deal with the military world, we will have to deal with the civilian world so we must arm ourselves with a certain amount of knowledge alongside our civilian brothers  . recommended Colonel Eric Ivala Yomba. The realization of this partnership comes after several meetings between the two entities.
