A youth wing of the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), the Blue League, has congratulated President Arthur Peter Mutharika, who is also the patron of the group, upon being crowned African Development Bank (AfDB) Youth Program Champion by the Bank’s President Dr Akinwumi Adesina when he visited the country last Tuesday, 5th April 2016. Below is the statement released by the Blue League on their official Facebook page:
The Blue League, a youth-wing of the governing and mighty Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), would like to congratulate you our Patron, His Excellency the President of the Republic of Malawi Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika upon being appointed a Champion for African Development Bank Youth Program for the next 10 years.
We, in the Blue League, feel as champions. Your being appointed as AfDB Youth Program Champion comes barely a year after you were named UNFPA Youth Global Champion, and other prestigious regional and international awards before that.
In this honor, AfDB partners with our great country Malawi and other countries across Africa in creating jobs for over 25 million African Youths. Your new role confirms that you are working tirelessly in representing the cause of the Youth in various international bodies and initiatives and that world leaders are recognizing your passion and work in the area of youth empowerment and inclusion in development. Therefore, as Youths, we do value this recognition not only as yours but ours also because it has been seen through your work and efforts on our behalf.
Our pledge to you Your Excellency is that we will continue to dialogue with you on optimal strategies that better the youths knowing that your door is wide open for us. We see Malawi transforming under your leadership.
May God bless you, our Patron and Father of the Nation.
Hard Work | Integrity | Patriotism
