Rural Youth Activist Movement (RYAM) Spokesperson Moses Bailey is calling on the government of President George Manneh Weah to get RYAM actively involved in government activities.
Speaking on a local radio on Monday, 26 February, Mr. Bailey said there are youth who have degree in basic education that can contribute to the well being of Liberia.
“We are not advocating that they take them from the rural areas to the urban area because we know that the Monrovia is populated. They can remain in their various counties and work for the betterment of the Country,” he says.
Mr. Bailey has lauded President Weah for making the youth part of the Government, but also says he the president needs to look at the rural youth too.
He draws President Weah’s attention to other youth in rural communities that lack access to quality education, saying that there is a need for more vocational schools so that the young people who have no academic education can acquire skills.
Mr. Bailey young people are willing to work in the education and agriculture sectors, calling on President Weah to provide loan for those who are in the agriculture sector to be able to make farm for the betterment of the Liberian market.
