Ekpe Society Resolutions from meeting held on September 16th in DC Ladies and Gentlemen, On behalf of resident members of The Ekpe Society - USA, I would like to start by apologizing for the uncharacteristic exchanges from some of our members that flooded these forums recently.

Every-other-day feeding extends lifespan but fails to delay many symptoms of aging in mice. Metformin causes a futile intestinal-hepatic cycle which increases energy expenditure and slows down development of a type 2 diabetes-like state.
Meis1 effects on motor phenotypes and the sensorimotor system in mice.
Aminoglycosides, but not PTC Atalurenrescue nonsense mutations in the leptin receptor and in luciferase reporter genes.

Sophie Oben Nkongho, Theresia Eta-Besong, Ketty Diame and Mary Forcha were laid to eternal rest recently in. Mr Francis Oben then left for the United States in for further studies in Roosevelt University.
He graduated from Roosevelt in with a B.S (Summa Cum Laude) in Chemistry. Francis then worked briefly from at Walgreens as a chemical analyst.
Key witnesses to this process were Dr Moses Besong and Mr. Ayuk Tabe-Ebob. Their mentors were Sisiku Elias Tanyi, who was the "AKWA OTNGHO EZUM NGBE" (The Professor of Professors in EKPE) and Taata Ngbe Oben Besong; and Dr.
Moses Besong's was their close range teacher, who polished their knowledge of the Ekpe Bush. Mamfe Restroom Project-Another significant progress on our Fundraising efforts My dear brothers and sister in Mamfe Town and Manyu Division, I am very excited to inform you that we have made another significant progress on raising the funds needed to realize the Restroom project in Mamfe Town.
The cases of Maxwell Oben still languishing in jail since and the arbitrary arrest of 15 Anglophones on 16 July for gathering in a restaurant are still fresh. Lawyers were ruffled, beaten and wigs and gowns confiscated during their peaceful march in Bamenda and Buea in September Oct 14, · Key witnesses to this process were Dr Moses Besong and Mr.
Ayuk Tabe-Ebob. Their mentors were Sisiku Elias Tanyi, who was the "AKWA OTNGHO EZUM NGBE" (The Professor of Professors in EKPE) and Taata Ngbe Oben Besong; and Dr. Moses Besong's was their close range teacher, who polished their knowledge of the Ekpe Bush.
