Benin: Talon helps 21 baccalaureate holders in difficulty
Twenty-one (21) baccalaureate graduates admitted with honours and having difficulty enrolling in the course of study of their choice can now enjoy a “ouf” of relief. Indeed, thanks to a heartfelt gesture from President Patrice Talon, they will now be able to enter their preferred field of study.
Pre-registered at the National School of Applied Economics and Management (ENEAM), twenty-one baccalaureate graduates admitted with a “very good” mark are forced to leave their initial course for another. A situation that was not to the liking of the Head of State, President Patrice Talon, who, as a good father of the nation, regularized the situation of these young students in difficulty.
Indeed, during the Ministers Council in its Wednesday 9 October 2019 session , President Patrice Talon’s government examined the case of 21 baccalaureate holders who were having difficulty registering in their preferred field. Admitted to the BAC, July 2019 session, with the “Very good” distinction , these new baccalaureate holders were not able to obtain their enrolment in the course of their first choice at the National School of Applied Economics and Management (ENEAM) due to the number of places available for the year. The alternative of enrolling in another course of study was thus imposed on them. In order to protect them against disappointment and the choice of a default channel, the government looked into the issue and asked for validation of their enrolment in the eneam. This paternalistic approach by the Head of State will allow these new students to continue their studies in the field of their choice where they will be able to acquire skills to put at the service of their country’s development.
