Nigerian head of the delegation to Liberia, Dallaji Noah, has identified the lack of opportunities to young people by African leaders as one key factor for consistent protestations in the region.
Noah has at the same time called on leaders in the African Region to provide young men and women the opportunity to showcase their talents in areas of their specialization, including sports, tourism and music, among others.
According to Noah, the youths, including musical artists, are given scholarships to help the environment to be developed, adding that Africa has the best economy to empower its citizens.
Speaking when the delegation paid a courtesy to the Liberian Senate during Thursday’s regular session upon an invite by Liberian Vice President and President of the Liberian Senate, Jewel Howard Taylor, Noah stressed that young people are often involved into protest actions against their national leaders because they are not afforded the needed opportunity to explore in the continent.
The Liberia’s neighboring Nigerian diplomat also uncovered to members of the Liberian Senate that Nigeria is open to corporate and collaborate with the Liberian government to help youths in the African Continent; something according to him, his country, Nigeria has been doing over the years for their youthful population.
Speaking on behalf of the House of Elders of the Liberian Parliament, President Pro-tempore, Senator Albert Tugbeh Chie recollected the role played by Nigerians during the 14 years of civil conflict in the country.
“We are glad and have also expressed interest of the Liberian government to working along with the government of the Federal Republic if Nigeria, the development of the young people is of the major pillars of the Coalition for Democratic Change government’s Pro-poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development.” Pro-tempore Chie asserted.
