As a Cadre of the SPLM with much profound gratitude and honour, I would like to excitedly congratulate H.E, Gen. Salva Kiir Mayardit, the President of the Republic and the Chairman of the SPLM for the appointment of National Ministers and Deputy Ministers at this critical time of transition towards the implementation of the R-ARCSS.
Most importantly, my personal congratulations goes to one of my generation, Cde. Dr. Albino Bol Dhieu for winning the trust of the President for appointing him as the National Minister of Youth and Sports which is in line with the provision of the agreement that it should be led by a young person.
However, with the high expectations of our young people for service delivery, I urge you comrade to work very hard to meet some of their aspirations within the context of the framework and policies of the Ministry.
To transform the youth of this country as being a tough assignment, you should prioritize youth participation (20% affirmative action), employment, disengagement from destructive activities, empowerment and above all the unity of the young people.
The Youth (72 %) must rally behind the leadership of President Kiir and support the Ministry through the youth organisations so that we can confront the challenges of the transitional period to realize sustainable peace and total stability.
Let’s consolidate our efforts for building this country and wishing you best of luck in your new endeavour.
Cde. Emmanuel Lubari Joseph
