Ministry of Youth Affairs and partners commemorate African Youth Day

 

 

Young people in Kabala, Koinadugu District on 1st November,2018,  hosted stakeholders in the Youth Sector to commemorate the African Youth Day, at the District Youth Centre. 

The theme for this year’ celebration was “Raising Youth Voices Against Corruption”.

In his statement, Abubakar Kamara, representative of the Anti-Corruption Commission asked the youths to join the fight against corruption. 

Corruption, he said, “is the singular enemy that is destructive and a blockade to national development.”

Mr. Kamara said, people no longer live within their means hence, a case for increased corruption in society.

Addressing the young people, Minister of Youth Affairs, Mohamed Orman Bangura encouraged them to take positive actions to create the necessary— awareness, prevention, report, expose and join forces to fiercely fight corruption.

He added that “young people bear the brunt of the effect of corruption and must remain resilient and committed to resist and win the war against corruption.”

This year’s event was climaxed by a debate competition between senior secondary school pupils in Kabala.

The three round debate session coined topics from the theme.

James Fortune of the National Literary and Debate Association said, the debate competition was to build the pupils’ abilities of reasoning and public speech. He encouraged them to keep the skills alive and practice more so they can compete with other districts.

Best Debater was awarded to Ansu Kandeh, head boy of the Kabala Secondary School (KSS).

Cash prizes, certificate of participation and plaques were awarded to the pupils.

Africa Youth Day is a day set aside every year to promote the increased recognition of youth as key agents for social change, economic growth and sustainable development in all areas of African Society.
