Ohl acknowledged the continued support of Goi. 

A significant part of the event coinciding with the presentation is the handing-over of home-made alcohol manufacturing equipment and uprooting of marijuana plants to signify behavioural change by the local youths who are participating in the competition. 

Ohl said the youths were quitting all illegal behaviour and were pledging to advocate development in all sectors of life. 

The exchange will be facilitated by police station commander Kelly Kaman and Nondugl health centre officer-in-charge John Bena with local leaders. 

Two golden oldies matches will be played as show of support for the youths.
