KHOST CITY (Pajhwok): The governor for southeastern Khost province on Thursday said he would pay utmost attention in hiring educated youth to various public office positions.

Governor Hukam Khan Habibi’s expressed these views on the eve of International Youth Day. He said vacant government posts would be given to youth through merit and established criterion.

“Despite the fact that youth comprise majority of the workforce in the country, they still have some problems in getting government jobs,” he remarked.

The governor also assured decisive drive against administrative graft. He urged the youth to identify corrupt officials in government offices. “My priority is fighting corruption. If you have faced any such incident in any government department I urge you to come forward and share it with us.”

Farooq Jan Mangal, a civil societyinfo-icon activist, said the youth would have their government’s back, but the government needed to focus on addressing the problem of unemployment.

“Unemployment is a country-wide challenge which gives birth to more problems,” Faroq said, urging the youth to support Afghan security forces in ensuring security.
