For the Rev. Pierre Agalgaba, present from CEPCA / Est, «  this motto is a commitment in a sub-regional and global context where identity withdrawal, rejection, intolerance and religious fundamentalism are taking on ever more worrying proportions, resulting in by acts of violence of another age perpetrated against co-religionists or against followers of other faith communities. «
