HOW THE OBJECTIVES WERE ACHIEVED

After its first edition of the Divisional CANYCO conference of Mezam which took place in Bamenda under the theme: ‘Youth and leadership, Break the Silence and Take Action” on December 11, 2014, we then continued the struggle of this divisional conference in preparation of the regional and national conferences. This explains why our first divisional conference was launched in Mezam Division, to Donga Mantung 9 February 2015, and Momo Division 22 May 2015, under the distinguished patronage of the S.D.O of the respective divisions.
