During the solemn ceremony, the AUB CEO, Mr Grégoire Ndjaka recalled the importance of sports in peacebuilding and resilience in the society.
Being one of the most popular sports in the world, football has a positive impact on hardworking youths with stable incomes. He therefore encouraged broadcasters to promote sports in general and football in particular as a sign of social cohesion and tolerance.
Mr Ndjaka presented the game as a discipline for the masses, not only the elite.
