Praia, Aug 12 (Inforpress) – The president of the African Independence Party of Cabo Verde (PAICV) urged young people to participate actively in order to contribute to Cabo Verde’s development.
Janira Hopffer Almada made this appeal in statements to the press, on the fringes of the meeting with young people, an event sponsored by JPAI, in Praia, to celebrate International Youth Day, which is observed annually on August 12.
For the leader of the largest opposition party, there has been a current disbelief in politics and politicians worldwide, but stressed that no change can be guaranteed if Cabo Verdean youth do not participate and take on current challenges.
“The country is not doing well and it is really necessary to rescue the country to build a Cabo Verde that belongs to everyone, a country we dream of, and for that, everyone has to participate in its development.
And what we want to say to young people is to participate and be the politician they would like each of us to be,” she said, considering youth as the present of the country, where everyone can dream with their development.
