On #YouthDay2022, I called for the youth to be placed at the front and centre of efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. Much will be achieved if we unite efforts to support their aspirations and, of course, with the implicit involvement of us, the older folks.

I am aware of worrying reports of escalating tensions and violent clashes between protesters and police in #SierraLeone. I hope calm and restraint will prevail and that all sides will turn to inclusive dialogue to resolve any differences.
