Fellow youths, Our tongues are as powerful as bullets from a gun; capable of destroying our beloved nation Cameroon. Our words should always promote peace and social cohesion. Say no to violence and never allow yourself to be used as tool of violence. Trigger peace and not guns. (Barister Tifuh Linus Njeck, Mr & Miss YALI Peace Award Contestant, NW Region)
