    Good morning!
    Congratulations for all your reports on Crtv web.
    Just to suggest/ to say that i wish all the report to be done on the both official languages english and french. That will enable many cameroonians, why not all of us, to be well informed and at the same time to learn more each of the languages. This can also contribute to the build of our national unity.
