Celebrated under the theme "Youths, Peace, Decentralisation and Participation in local governance for a new Cameroon", hundreds of students from The University of Bamenda came out to show their love for the nation.

Some 10 youths drawn from the region received Youths Excellence Awards for their works ranging from farming, peace building and humanitarian activities.

Speaking after the match pass in Bamenda, North West Governor said that this year's theme has been placed around youths and peace and this call is coming after the Major National Dialogue.

"Many youths have been elected and we are celebrating their success today. If you work hard, you must harvest the fruits of your labour", North West Governor said

He encouraged the youths to use the many opportunities given to them by the government to create jobs for themselves.

The 54th edition of the National Youth Day celebrations in Bamenda brought together youths from some six secondary and higher institutions of learning from across Bamenda.
