He said, “we have treasured all your observations, you have highlighted your priorities and your commissions have been duly constituted with you as members and some of you as coordinators and some as secretary of the various commissions. So it seems to me that you are ready to run the race for which you have been called on and we are wishing you the very best.

“You know the terms of reference of your commissions. We therefore count on you to produce the something good in order the advance the course of the promotion of our languages towards the accomplishment of the dream of the African Union to ensure that our languages are institutionalized, instrumentalized, used as instrument of science and technology, and used to bring knowledge to our people in all the domains.
