Two members of Parliament: Honorable Nuru Deen Sankoh Yillah of Constituency 105 and Alpha Babatunde Lewally of 104 has cautioned youths in the country to be patient with the government.
This came in as a result of the 45 days ultimatum notice given to government to set up the Youth Commission failing which the youth themselves will form the Commission. Hon. Sankoh Yillah who is the Chairman of the Parliamentary Committee on Youth and Sports said that, he was taken aback when he heard that youths had given an ultimatum to the government.
The Legislator noted that, just two days ago, they held a meeting with the youth stakeholders in Parliament and it was agreed that the youth leaders and Parliamentarians meet with the Minister of Education, Youth and Sports on Friday to talk about the issue of the setting up of the Commission.
Sankoh stated that ahead of setting up of the Commission, youths will be given support to run their affairs and, hoping that such Commission will test the time of government.
The chairman maintained that, youth leaders calling on the setting up of the commission should thank the government for placing premium on youth.
“It would be my dream come true to see the setting up of the Commission”, Yillah said, urging the youth to be patient with the government.
