Establish a National Muslim Youth Council Hon. Amadu Fofanah urges young people
The Member of Parliament for Constituency 109, Hon. Amadu Fofanah commonly known as Hon. Fofie has persuaded young people in his Constituency to propagate Islam by establishing a National Islamic Youth Council because according to him, Government can only come to their aid if an umbrella body is formed.
He made this call at the launching of the 20th anniversary of the United Muslim Youth Council on Saturday, 25th January, 2014 at the National Youth Commission at the Swimming Pool of the National stadium in Freetown.
He prayed for a continuation of the Muslim Youth Council and urged members to try and acquire skills to develop not only themselves but the country as a whole.
He stated that it was heart warming to note that the Council which stated small has now become a very big organization.
He called on the members of the Council to fight hard to uphold the tenets of Islam and always live ass Muslims.
He appealed to them to extend their programmes to the physically challenged so that they too will be given the opportunities to better themselves.
He stressed that the Government of Sierra Leone and the international community have given a lot of opportunities to young people to participate in the affairs of the country without any hindrance.
He advised them to always plan properly if they want to achieve their objectives.
Speaking on gender equality, he said the women too should not be left behind in their programmes because most of them are making outstanding performances in the country.
He observed that since Muslims formed the majority of the population in the country, they should take the lead to do good things to bring positive attitudes in the country.
He urged the young people not to waste any time rather they should chase opportunities that have been given to them.
He also urged the youths to exhibit their skills for the benefit of their various communities and nation.
He advised them to work within the ethics of the Council and to stop creating fractions within the Council, stressing that they should be able to disagree to agree so that they can speak with one voice.
