Northern Bahr el Ghazal calls for youth supports to the state


December 21, 2009 (KHARTOUM) — Authorities from Southern State of Northern Bahr el Ghazal have on Monday called on youth to give their supports to the state administration to implement developmental projects.

Jacob Yel Garang, an SPLM youth League Chairperson at the state, said the government of Northern Bahr el Ghazal has exceptionally done well in all areas but still needs youth to extend their supports to the state government under General Paul Malong Awan whom he described as "hero, able and exceptional leader".

He further said, Aweil town, the state capital of Northern Bahr el Ghazal has completely changed. There are a lot of new buildings including storey buildings cropping up all over the town, he adds.

"If you have never visited Aweil after the appointment of Governor Malong, just come during this Christmas season and you will get the difference I am talking about from previous administrations," he said.

He continued to say the governor is committed and determined to bringing the desperately needed changes to the state.

"Because of these commitment and determination being seen through current developmental projects, I called upon Northern Bahr el Ghazal Youth group not to forget their role in development by supporting Government programs as the year 2010 approaches," he said.

However, four of the contestants against the sitting Governor Malong have already expressed readiness to contest the post.

Earlier, Jacob said youth should avoid being idle and identify Government programs they can support.

"I would like to encourage the youth, as we go into 2010 elections, not to be idle but support Government programs that are beneficial to them," Yel said.

Mr. Yel said, Youth, as the clock of New Year move faster, they must find time to reflect on their contribution to state development despite the state’s inability to employ all of them.

He also urged youth to be innovators to become self-employed and employers of others asking youth to avoid being involved in violence, saying they must promote peace.

We should also help facilitate enhanced cooperation among political parties in the interest of democracy, he said appealing to youths to support efforts of political parties to work together in order to build on democracy.

    Salva Kiir has been looting money of oil of Upper Nile to build his own state and left Upper Nile civilians with hunger and undevolvement. Where you got that money if it is not Upper Nile money. Just loot,but time is coming for you and you group to leave and go to look after cows.

      Great job Aweil Youth.
      We need development in the South through various innovation.
      This is really the progess that we SPLA were fighting for many years,so that we attempted to manage ourself without the influences from Arab North.

      Mr Oduck,
      Aweil is one among South Sudan like Uper Nile.
      We also need the same develoment in the Upper Nile.
      Why are you complianing while you have 2% revenue from oil while others have zero.
      See now you have missed the point instead of running like lizard whose tail has been cut off.
      Your town percentage can make the difference.
      Are complianing like those Bentiu who want their 2% to be distributed to their villages.

        Hi Mr. Jacob Yel, stop telling baseless lies to the world about the development which you said to have made with your food lover Mr. Paul Malong. Which development where you trying to tell us from here? I cann’t see any changes in Aweil-town and as well as Aweil state in general.No proper schools built, No Good hospital, people are dying like animals in NBEG State Aweil, there is scacity of water in the area. So what kind of development is mr food lover Jacob Yel Garang of Nymalel is talking about? Development does not mean if you built for yourself some luxuary building then you have made the development to the people. All the building which are now in NBEG state Aweil are not belong to government the are personal houses why Mr. Yel is terming them as development. If you are bribe then you eat those maney silently and you keep quite don’t vomit out any single dirty words from your bad mouth. We know the deal which you were been doing now with master but we know the time that we shall be getting ride of your poor administration. Northern Bahr- El Ghazal state is not for only few people it is for ours all of us and each and everyone is having right to choose a leader whom he perfere to be good in leading people. You were been talking of stores how can you built a stores while you don’t have any thing to keep in it that is the iliterate act.

          That’s why i always appreciate your comment because realities can not just be hid for nothin, just to con the attention of outsiders by idiots like Yel Garang who mostly took much time trying to prove a simple point.

          Iam on the ground here in Aweil, which development he is talking about? yel must be after something, but all the same he will not get this way, praising himself as a youth leader, can he tell us how he become YL. what does Yel Knows? is just another illitrate idiot like.......... you guyz are not serious, you see others silent and assume to be happy with you, wait for the right time and see how things will work.

          Hey Jacob Yel, you are Malong’s reume’. Malong Awan knows nothing,but stealing money is the education has he got. The Aweil’s people are peacefull people; but your governor whom you steal NBEG money will remove you from office like a peace of cake. I wish you and your Malong were working in our state(Great E) you won’t fool us like that people,it would be a different case, God knows how suffer these people are.And anidiot Salva Kiir Mayardit brought stupid ass like him to ruin up the state NBEG . Sons of bitches.

      the illiterate (Malong) is not doing any good work to the people of Aweil, he is too avarice and he deserve no support at the next election. he is working hard now to loot the money in order to bribe people to win election next year or whatsoever; but i don’t think if people of Aweil will give him a second chance again to come to the office of governorship. Aweil people will vote him out of the office once and for all. Aweil people are the most peaceful and courageous people at the same time and therefore, they need an educated governor who will lead them so they can enjoy the bight side or fruit of peace.

      Northern Bahr el Ghazal has no connection with Kiir accept that he is Dinka from Greater Bahr elGhazal, However you missed the point here, what was reported is something NBGs governor did but not President Kiir.

      Secondly we are not comparing our states with each other in Southern Sudan in term of development rather we should compare with the northern states.

      Jacob Yel you need not to campaign by singing songs on developmental projects that are not need currently by the NBG electrates who will either vote for Paul Malong or the other four candidates that are mentioned here.

      NBG populace don’t need houses that are not in use. what they need for now is good clinics,good basic school and well pay teachers.

      I came from Norther Bahr el Ghazal but i have never hard of Jacob one day except i read about him today.What is this youth leader doing in term of organizing them, negotiating with government authorities, NGOs etc to employ them. youth are suffering from NGOs with documents require in every State of Southern Sudan day by day on false advertisement of job that are offered to Foreigners then give them hard time to compete and end up in seeing someone coming either from other state or abroad for minor positions.These are issues Yel should discuss with SSRRC representatives after complain from youth he lead.

      Jacob Yel next time we love to see you recommending governor on basic needs done to populace but not houses.

      Look @ this fool who call himself Oduck Bol.

      What do you know about politics and Southern Sudan geographically as a whole ???
      During the liberation was there anything call Upper Nile, Unity, Central Equatoria if you are not mad?, the Southerners fought undiscriminatingly leaving no State unliberated.
      Where where you (Shilluk)in the struggle, don’t tell me your few guys who had joined the struggle (Pagan, Oyay, Adwok, Akuoc,Parnyang and the betrayal Lam)these were the only guys.

      I love unity of Southern Sudanese more then nothing.
      Republic of South Sudan oyee, Southerners oyee, SPLM oyee.
      Am not against you but post constuctive not destructive messages.

    South Sudan needs development that can be seen by the whole World therefore, for those of Oduck Bol etc. they are complaining what they don’t know. Look at him he is from Upper Nile where 2% of the oil share is given, what next? When you misuse your own share on other things then please don’t blame or accuse others who have organized themselves in their state otherwise.

    Kuol Manyang and Malong Awan are doing their best in South Sudan. Kuol is bringing back black NCP agents to SPLM party which is a part of development plus many other.

      Those who are against governor Paul Malong Administration are right but who do you think is better than Malong? Malong is better than previous governors who are holding bachelors. My advice is to support governor Malong and advice him to hiring qualify people to assist his leadership. there are young Aweil people now holding bachelors and PHDs that help state devoplement.

      I don’t think there is anyone more better than Malong right now. Please don’t try to ruin your state. If you have someone more qualify, it is also good.
