Youth's role vital in elimination of corruption, injustice: President
KABUL (Pajhwok): President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani has asked youth to join hands together against corruption and injustice as they were the future leaders of the county, said a statement from Presidential Palace on Tuesday.
The president expressed the view during a meeting with students from Kabul, Education, Polytechnic universities and Khoshal Khan and Rahman Baba High Schools Monday evening.
Ghani extended greetings on the occasion of Eid-Ul-Adha and said: “You are the future leaders and should work for national unity, stability, equality, gender equality and to create more cohesion among urban and rural people,” the statement said.
He said Afghanistan lost a century chance of development and success, but the dreams of Ghazni Amanullah Khan, former King of Afghanistan, were still alive in the hearts and minds of people and would be materialised.
The president asked youth to consider Afghanistan’s every part as its own and fight against corruption and injustice, adding the youth should play their role in elimination of poverty as there were huge opportunities and chances to make the country and people wealthy.
He said Afghanistan had a rich culture and the youth should be aware of it. “All of the languages being spoken in the country were a pride for the country and every ethnic group ruled the country in the past,” the president noted.
During the meeting the president directed education officials to make sure that all schools in the far-flung areas of the country were open. He also said that the government would pay more attention to the higher education in the upcoming months.
