Youth Activist Calls For Decentralization of Youth Activities 

By David Seedee, LINA Bomi County Correspondent

TUBMANBURG, April 3 (LINA) - The Parliamentarian of the Mano River Union Liberia chapter, George K. Coleman, is calling for the decentralization of youth activities in the four districts of Bomi County.

Parliamentarian Coleman said the decentralization of youth activities in Klay, Suehn, Dewein, and Senjeh Districts should be a major priority of the County administration to ensure that the young people fully participate in the activities of the youth.

Speaking in an interview with the Liberia News Agency in the county on Monday, Parliamentarian Coleman said the Youth Center in Tubmanburg under the supervision of the Ministry of Youth and Sports cannot meet the needs of all the youth in the county.

He said similar centers should be constructed in the various district headquarters, because the center in Tubmanburg cannot accommodate youth representatives from the districts, in terms of training and hosting of programs, considering the growing number of youth activities.

Parliamentarian Coleman said the county administration in its wisdom should allot portion of the County Development and the Social Development Funds for the construction of youth centers in the districts.

Meanwhile, Parliamentarian Coleman, who is also a youth of the county and a commissioner of the Bomi County Elections Commission, has disclosed that elections for youth leaders in the county have begun.

He told the Liberia News Agency that elections for youth leaders in Dewein District have been completed while elections for youth leaders in Klay District will take place this month.

Parliamentarian Coleman said the commission has been mandated to conduct elections in the four districts in the county- Suehn Mecca, Senjeh, Klay and Dewein Districts.

He said youth being the future leaders of the county should be trained, educated and prepared for future challenges and to take on leadership of the county.
