The videoconference ran for over three hours. Those who spoke first were representatives from the different ministries. Although they all had congratulatory messages from their different Ministers to the Minister of Youths, they however had specific recommendations. Such was the case with the representative from the Ministry of Basic Education who said when involving pupils from primary schools in the “Youth Village” programme; it should be between 1:00 pm and 4:00 pm. This is to permit parents easily accompany their children back home after the programme. Those in the Diaspora thanked the Minister of Youths for his open spirit used in involving all youths in activities commemorating their day. The Representative of African Network of Germany said the innovative ideas used should be encouraged and fostered for the wellbeing and unity of youths in Cameroon and abroad.Read also : Gestion des corps: Avec restrictions
