Harping on the importance of the celebration, Hon. Awudu Mbaya said that anyone that doesn't care about the future of the youths is building a foundation on sand. “Youths are the leaders of tomorrow”, he added. “The youths constitute the foundation on which a nation is built and it is my wish that they should be encouraged”, Hon. Awudu continued. He said that on all the prizes that he supported the various youth day centres with, there is a sticker on which he expresses his concern for the youths which read thus: Your Future Remains my Concern.

Awudu cited the case of GHS Mbuwarr where student staged a dance from Manyu. To him, these are actions that should be encouraged so that national integration becomes a practical reality. The only message to youths is that of hard work and determination. And that going to school and studying well is what will make them leaders of tomorrow. “We need people to replace us tomorrow. My message is that you should concentrate in studying well so that tomorrow some of you could be mayors, MPs, Ministers, Directors, teachers and why not the President of this country”?
