According to Prof. Ndongo, “Cameroon of today needs youths who are healthy in body and in mind, to serve the nation selflessly.” He added “we are to encourage camaraderie and healthy competition, and we call on the fan clubs to present all that is beautiful on the Cameroon culture and a spirit of national unity. My wish for all is that the best sides should win in all transparency.”
