Nimba County District #7 Rep. Roger S. Domah is calling on his colleagues at the Legislature to improve allotment for young people’s program here. He made the call Wednesday, 23 May when he was being certificated by the Concerned Student Group of Liberia as Best Legislative Humanitarian based on his outstanding and extra performances in the private sector and government.
As the 2018- 2019 budget is being presented to Legislature, Rep. Domah observes that the allotment of US$70,000.00 for young people is unrealistic. He expresses hope that the conversation ongoing at the Legislature can help improve on the allotment made for young people’s program such as the Federation of Liberian Youth (FLY), Liberia National Student Union (LINSU) and others.
He says young people’s programs need to be improved because they make up larger portion of the society. Rep. Domah thanked the group for the recognition and promise to work with them at any time.
He says his coming to the Capitol results from his relationship with the young people, especially the student community. Rep. Domah says he knows there are many young people out there who desired to be empowered so that they can become leaders of this nation for tomorrow, but the opportunity is lacking.
According to Concerned Student Group of Liberia Secretary General Alexander Harris, they look at people and grade them for what they have been doing for their people.
Student Harris says for the past four months, they have been monitoring the work of Rep. Domah and he has contributed to health care, school, market and other developmental things in his county.
