The minister of Youth Affairs, Adoum Garoua, has said the national youth week activities will be launched in Maroua in the Far North Region on February 3 and 4. Minister Adoum Garoua was speaking in Yaoundé last Tuesday while chairing a preparatory meeting towards the celebration of the 44 edition of the National Youth day come February 11, 2010.
The meeting brought together representatives of partner ministries, youth associations, the National Youth Council as well as the forces of law and order. The launching this year will be marked by a tree planting exercise in Maroua. The Minister will among other issues meet with leaders of youth associations, and hand over donations to youths in prison in Maroua.
For this edition, which coincides with the anniversary celebrations a special square will be constituted of youths who will be distinguished by their prowess in different domains. Organisers are determined to ensure a hitch-free commemoration of the National Youth Day. The last preparatory meeting will take place on January 19.
