VP Boakai Urges Full Support For Youth
By Richard D. Baysah, LINA Margibi County Correspondent

KAKATA, February 16 (LINA) – Vice President Joseph Nyumah Boakai says Liberian youth should be seen as a blessing to society and therefore deserve being fully supported.

He emphasized that Liberian youth should be given the needed support so that they can be better prepared to take on future leadership of the country.

Vice President Boakai made the call Sunday at the Kakata City Hall at a program marking the induction of officials of the National Movement for Boakai (NAMBO) Margibi Count y chapter.

He observed that there are countries around the world that are currently experiencing low birth rate and as a result lack the youthful population that Liberia is blessed with, emphasizing that “Liberia is blessed with youthful population that other countries don’t have.”

Meanwhile, Vice President Boakai has pointed out that the empowerment of youth for future leadership remains a major priority of the national government.

He noted that the government will endeavor to ensure that youth get the attention they deserve.

Those installed were Sensee K. Fofana, Chairman; Emmanuel F. Fartoomey, Co- Chair and Paul Williams, Secretary General, among others

He admonished the inducted officials to be forerunners of the National Movement for Boakai in Margibi County.

Vice President Boakai indicated that the formation of the Movement was not to his knowledge, noting that he got to know about it just a week ago when executives of that body paid him a courtesy call.

“I have not put a dime into this movement but out of deep love, respect and admiration Liberians have developed for me over the years, this is why they have on their own volition established this movement,” VP Boakai noted.
