On May 14, 2023, the Samuel Kanyon Doe Youth Association inaugurated a new set of officers to lead the organization for the next two years.
The induction ceremony, which took place at New Life Victory Church in Doe Community, saw six officers take their oaths of office.
Joe Di Sosah was sworn in as President, with Viola T Geeplay as Vice President, Philip N. Kulah Jr. as Secretary General, and Jonathan E. Johnson as Public Relations Officer, among others.
During his inaugural address, President Di Sosah emphasized the need for stable electricity in the community. He stated that a reliable power supply would not only reduce crime rates but also enhance economic activities, as most residents depend on electricity for their businesses.
Moreover, Mr. Di Sosah highlighted the issue of safe drinking water, which remains a major challenge for the people of Doe Community. He called on the national government to take action to provide safe drinking water to the residents.
The President also expressed concern over the proliferation of ghettos in the area, which he believes is contributing to the increase in illegal drug use among young people. He called on the Liberia Drug Enforcement Agency to take swift action to address the problem.
Mr. Di Sosah urged all elected officials and young people in the community to work together to achieve the four pillars of his administration, which include Sanitation, Health Care, Security, Advocacy, Vacation Jobs, and Education.
He also advised citizens, especially young people, to vote their conscience and not to sell their voter’s cards for little or nothing. Mr. Di Sosah promised to work with all political parties and candidates aspiring to be representatives of District #14 to construct a modern multi-purpose youth center in Doe Community.
