After visiting the Center region, Littoral, South West regions, the offical mascot of the TotalEnergies African Cup of Nations 2021 “Mola” has made his presence felt and revived the hopes of football diehards in the region ahead of most prestigious football bonanza in the continent.
The Mola was welcomed at the Governor’s office early Thursday 16, 2021 and handed to the public where he toured the streets from up station through Finance Junction, mobile, Cow Street, Ngeng Junction through Sonac Street, City Chemist, Old Town and back to Up station.
While welcoming the mascot to the region the secretary General at the Governor’s office, expressed his joy of having the mascot in a region not earmarked to host the competition.
“We are very happy to welcome our mascot to Bamenda and we are delighted. We were surprised to hear that the mascot is coming to Bamenda. As we know our region does have a pool for the AFCON and we were expecting to watch the games on TV. And when we received the news of his coming we were doubting and today we have received the mascot. We know how difficult it has been organizing it, we want to thank the Minister for thinking of the North West region to organise this AFCON and sending the mascot to the region” Viang Mekala SG at the North West governor’s office explained.
Cameroon is expected to host the second 24 nation tournament which will be the 33rd edition of the African Cup of Nations in under 25 days from January 9 to February 6, 2021. This will be across five cities in Cameroon ( Yaounde, Douala, Bafoussam, Garoua and Limbe-Buea).
