“My immediate task is first of all to rally all sports journalists in the region to hold regular meetings, we need to make the Northwest felt at the national and international level through our activities, through way we report, by also lobbying for more sporting infrastructures in the Northwest region and after all to defend the interest of sports journalists in the region” he said.

Pierre Anoufack promised to use his vast experience in the world of sports to make things happen in the Northwest Region and pledge his availability to address the problems of sports reporters in the Northwest, notable at the national level where they are missing from major events like the Mount Cameroon Race, the Cup of Cameroon finals, the activities of the various categories of the national team and international sporting events that Cameroon participates in.
