One of the 26 tribal groups present in Batoke village in Limbe II Sub-Division has described the community as a melting pot of multiculturalism and national integration.

Addressing the people of Batoke, Mbonbog Ntamack the head of the Longtom family said their son had lived in Batoke for more than 5years and it was necessary for them to come and pay homage to the chief of Batoke by Presenting Biyaga Vincent to him. He went on to appreciate the cordial relationship that exists between the indigenes of Batoke and other ethnic tribes stating that it is a true  demonstration of national integration.
On his part, the traditional ruler of Batoke HRH Chief Molive Molungu Otto lauded the initiative of the Longtom family to approach the Palace officially for the presentation and called on his Quarter Head, Chairman and tribal heads to develop moiré fruitful relationship with the Prince from Bassa land. Chief Otto told Prince Biyaga Vincent to remain law abiding and be of good example to his fellow tribesmen.
The Chief of Batoke who recently grabbed the 2016 Man of Peace and Socio-Economic Development Award in CEMAC zone by the Diaspora Magazine based in Libreville in Gabon is noted for his philanthropy and open door policy to give everyone a chance to contribute towards the development of his community.
