For his part, Ousman Fatty Chairman NYC said the dialogue is meant to enhance mutual understanding and tolerance between political parties during the electoral cycle, enhance the capacity of the Youth Branch, Inter-Party Committee on their role for a peaceful election.
He encourages young people to be tolerant and peaceful coexistence among youth wing political parties and enlighten the youth on the role of peacebuilding and effective participation in the electoral process towards national development.
Every electoral process has its downside and frustrations that breed tension and violence. In most cases, the biggest numbers of victims of violence are young people. This he attributes to the availability and energy that in most times is taken advantage of. Fatty told participants
" As young people we must remember we have a great future ahead of us and posterity will never forgive us if we allow ourselves to be agents in plunging this country into chaos. Let’s support the promotion of peace, before, during and after the December 4th polls”.
