THE HON. MINISTER OF YOUTH & SPORTS DELIVERS A STATEMENT AT THE 5TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON IRREGULAR MIGRATION HELD IN DAKAR, SENEGAL.

Invited to participate and deliver a statement at the 5th International Conference on Irregular Migration held in Dakar, Senegal.
The theme 'African Youths facing the Challenges of Irregular Migration and Development', enabled me to speak on the need for governments of Sub-Saharan Africa to device concrete measures to address the root causes of Irregular migration, ranging from economic hardship, political and civil conflicts, violation of human rights among others. I called on the countries of origin, transit and destination to intensify mutually benefiting work to address irregular mitigation, emphasising that while migrants and their families suffer, irregular migration inhibit growth of human capital, socio-economic development, and security of both countries.

Rohey Malick Lowe; Banjul Mayoress who is also in attendance spoke on the impact of internal migration and internally displaced person and it's effects on women and youths.
