Visiting international youth leader Mr. Momodu Saballay has told Liberian youth and students that the sustaining the peace must not be taken for granted, reminding them to preserve the peace and stability of the country at all times.
“There is no process or development or even recovery if there is no peace and stability in any nation,” Mr. Saballay said in a keynote speech delivered at the YMCA in Monrovia Thursday, 30 May.
He addressed youth and students on the topic: Civic Leadership and Youth Development are great insurance for progress in any population that is dominated by young people.
Mr. Saballay believes that there should be no challenge that Liberia cannot overcome, as he retrospects on how the country conquered Ebola outbreak.
For his part, the president of the Federation of Liberia Youth (FLY) Amos Williams says the institution remains committed to keeping alive, the dreams and vision of every young person in the country.“FLY remains passionate to keeping the dreams and vision of every young person alive,” he says.But Williams cautions that FLY cannot achieve this if it does not get the collective support needed.
Mr. Williams calls on all youth and students who have served the Federation to put aside whatever differences they have and join the new team of leaders at FLY to keep young people’s dreams and vision alive and move the institution forward.
Amos challenges past leaders of FLY not to sit and allow the Federation’s existence to be questioned, saying their support can help the new leadership to move the institution forward.
“If we must succeed in this new leadership, it will be on the
foundation and desire that you have for the Federation,” he says.By Lewis S. Teh–Edited by Winston W. Parley
