ASATU Youth Community Tour

The Youth Wing of  Anambra State  Association of Town Unions  (ASATU) Concludes A Tour Of All The Communities  In The State.

The successful community  tour of the youth wing of ASATU  which commenced from Amaobia Awka South LGA  was made possible by the dedication of the new executive of the association lead by Hon Osita Osita Kc Kingsley Ozalagba.

The newly constituted executive meticulously took time to identify  the challenges facing the youths in the state and graciously  articulated means to mitigate them, thus the pre tour summit that preceded the actual town hall meetings with the youths across the 180 communities in Anambra  state, including fegge community Onitsha South Local Government Area.

The tour which focused on educating the youths of Anambra state on social and political issues laid emphasis on six key points that are relative to the current realities in the state as listed below

1. Sensitization of the youths on the ongoing voters registration exercise
2. Youth Eneterprenueship
3. Youth participation in governance
4. Thuggery
5. E thuggery.
6. Drug abuse

The youth leaders took time to  sensitized the youths on the need to fully participate in the ongoing Continues Voters Registration Exercise, not just to register their names rather they should mobilize people in their immediate political wards to come out en mass to register. The massive turn out being witness at all the INEC offices across the state is a testament to the success of this Sensitization embarked upon by the ASATU  youth leaders.

In the tour team were also motivational speakers who diligently counseled  the youths in each of the communities visited on consequences of  being a tool in the hands of unscrupulous political elements who engage youths as thugs during electioneering period. The participating youths were exposed on the entrepreneurship aspects of social media platforms, they were made to understand that they  can make good use of time spent on social media to generate employment for themselves, by mastering the skills of Blogging Networking and Online marketing rather than spend time on social media  being a menace to the society by peddling false informations  and being  willing tools in the hands of desperate politicians.

The speakers during the tour harped on the dangers of drug abuse among youths. Those who participated in the town hall meetings in various communities in the state were admonished  to stay away from hard drugs and other substance abuses as to avoid certain behaviors that can ruin their future thereby coursing untold hardship for themselves and their loved ones.

To mark the end of the  tour by The National Working Committee of ASATU Youths which was a resounding success in all ramifications,  committees were constituted and mandated to follow up the association's Eneterprenueship and skill acquisition programs. Another committees was mandated to monitor the  voters registration exercise currently ongoing across the state.
