“Young people have power, they are strong enough to engage in various activities, I want you to work hard by engaging also in entrepreneurship and agriculture activities so as to transform your lives and the country at large,” he said.

The MP also went further and urged farmers especially those who engage in cashew nuts production to stop selling g their produce informally but rather follow formal procedures for them to benefit from their activities.

 He also called upon parents and relatives in the area to invest in education of their children by ensuring school age going children are enrolled  and complete  their studies for the betterment of their future life.

“Education is everything that can give your children a bright future. And it is high time to grab the opportunity as the government provides free basic and secondary education.
