Youths hail Koroma’s ‘Agenda for Change’

Over nine hundred registered members of a community based organization  in Constituency 107 in Central Freetown, called the Youth Network for Development (YND), also known as the Krootown Road Ataya Base Organization, have wholeheartedly accepted the President’s agenda for change call.

During the second official visit with officers from the Friends of President Koroma’s Foundation for Development, one of the leading advocacy youth groups for the agenda for change vision, the co-Founder and Chairman of the YND, Mr. Samuel Ben Turay, said he supported President Ernest Bai Koroma’s call for several reasons.

He stated that the Holy Bible stresses that unless one is born again, he or she cannot enter the Kingdom of God, which he maintained is a statement that also refers to attitudinal and behavioral changes of human beings.

“As a youth leader, I also believe that the only way Sierra Leone can achieve its goals is when all of us evade politics, tribalism, nepotism and transfer this agenda for change to the hands of Jehovah,” he opined

He explained that their organisation is not a political group but because of the realism behind President Koroma’s vision they will be the second largest group to sell it nationwide.

The first meeting of the two organizations was connected to a good working relationship among them.

He thanked the team of visitors and promised to work with their Foundation to push the President’s agenda for change forward.

Mr. Turay said their major aim was to advocate for the youths to ensure a maximization of their welfare, and also to push Sierra Leone’s economic development forward.

The ceremony took place past weekend at the national headquarters of YND, at 11 Adelaide Street, Freetown.

In his reaction, the National Leader of the Friends of Koroma Foundation, Mr. Sahr Mokuwa, said he was very happy that both the YND and his organization have similar objectives to sell the agenda for change, fight for the improvement of the lives of youths, and involving young people in national development, which, he disclosed was why they decided to connect the two organizations.

He observed that the success of the President’s vision requires the collective efforts of all Sierra Leoneans both in and out of the country. He appealed to young people to support this noble vision.

He disclosed that the Foundation was formed by residents of Kailahun District during a visit of the President there in November last year because of the admiration they have for his visionary gift.

He further disclosed that they can currently boast of over twenty-eight thousand youths as members country wide.

Other speakers at the meeting were Mr. Ismail Kakpindi Kaifala, the Public Relations Officer, and Mr. Abubakarr Suma, the Financial Secretary of YND.
