The Strategic Communication Unit of the Ministry of Information and Communications has commenced a ‘meet the people tour’ across the country.
The reason for embarking on such venture is to inform people in grassroots communities about government policies and programmes, and to also alert them about the upcoming commission of enquiry, says a member of the Unit.
Last Friday, the team visited the Spur Loop community, where people were given the opportunity to ask questions about government activities.
According to Bobor W. Bockarie, they engaged people on the free quality education and the school feeding programme.
“We are pleased to be here today and interact with you. The work of government is a collective responsibility and I must say that the youth are very important to the agenda of the president,” he said.
On his part, Youth Chairman of Bayasa Ghetho, Usman Jones, expressed thanks and appreciation to the team for visiting them, stating that it was significant for government officials to be reaching out to the grassroots.
He added that most of them do not have time to listen to radio or television because they have to go out to fend their living.
He called on government to address the issue of youth unemployment and expressed hope that those that have skills will be gainfully employed.
