Youth Activist and Campaigner Against Drug Abuse and Violence Admonishes!

By Melvin Max-Conteh (20/05/18)

The development in Sierra Leone could not be spoken of without the recognition of the youths, according to youth campaigners in the country.

 

"Their voices have been predominantly overlooked. For a long time we have assumed that youth should only be seen and not heard. We need to rethink our assumptions,” campaigners and organisations say. (Photo; President Maada Bio's SLPP government needs to help nip youth problems in the bud).

The youths need to be empowered and engaged at all levels of Sierra Leone development agenda. Youths needed to be included in participation of the national economy as entrepreneurs.

Youths should be involved meaningfully in the development of the country. They should be active participants with a valuable voice and opinion in the decision making process, including participation in policy direction an so on.

Government should include young people in governance positions who would be well equipped to further take the country forward. We are not a nation of resignation, we are an aspiration nation.

We must aspire for a decent place in the land of opportunity this country holds for us as Youth. We must all invest in hope and hard work that must lead all of us to a place of affluence. This we can do as a united democratic and peaceful nation.

In the collective power of this nation I have great hope. In the patience and resilience of our youth, I have no doubt. Sierra Leone is our common heritage, it is our common inheritance, let us all work towards nation building.

Sierra Leoneans let us build a nation that celebrates diversity and reject all forms of illiberal values. We are a tolerant nation and so we must remain. Our country was built on a foundation of hard work and unity.

Let us remain patriotic in order to build a stable, peaceful and prosperous Sierra Leone. Country interests must come before TRIBAL, REGIONAL or PARTISAN interests. Let there be work, bread, water and salt for all.

TRIBUTE: ALPHA SHAW
