“It was a great pleasure for me to attend a meeting organized by Youth Aid Africa for  youth to discuss issues of youth and democratic governance. It was really a platform from experience and expertise in the government. Good governance can lead young people to find a large number of different production and different ideas. Its a big key to work together with the government and young people. I would like to thank friends, Youth Aid Africa for the invitation, I would advise  you to continue  encouraging and intensifying the work you are doing for the youth”.
