Youths should be part­ners in na­tional build­ing

Daily Nation Newspaper - - READERS FORUM -

Dear Edi­tor,

THE pri­mary role of young peo­ple is to get a good ed­u­ca­tion, to be­come the cit­i­zens of to­mor­row. They need to learn skills, to do the jobs that the coun­try’s econ­omy needs.

Youths also need to know how to read, write, think, un­der­stand, an­a­lyze, dis­cuss the is­sues Zam­bia faces. They need to learn its his­tory, to be proud of its past, to un­der­stand its present, to chart the course of its fu­ture.

Fi­nally, young peo­ple should help to build the na­tion by be­com­ing in­volved in so­cial and po­lit­i­cal causes, such as peace, hu­man rights, and the en­vi­ron­ment.

A Happy Youth Day to all youths in Zam­bia.

Br. Chalo Igid­i­ous CFC.
