Nusrat PASA holds symposium

Wednesday, March 14, 2007
The Pan-African Students Association (PASA) of Nusrat Senior Secondary School on Friday 9 March, held its annual Pan-African symposium held at the school’s hall.

The symposium was aimed at discussing the role of students in the Pan-African Revolution and the way forward for Africa.

Delivering his opening remarks at the symposium, Omar Jammeh, Co-ordinator of PASA, hailed the students for organising such a programme. He added that they are the future leaders of tomorrow and should always strive towards emancipating their fellow Africans about Pan-Africanism.

“You should always try to inculcate the idea of Pan-Africanism into your fellow Africans and do not allow yourselves to be overshadowed by other activities,” he advised.

Madi Jobarteh one of the speakers who spoke on the ‘role of students in the Pan-African revolution’, emphasised the need for students to reflect deeply on Africa and the struggles that have been made by African legends like Kwame Nkrumah.

He noted that this will give the students a clear view of the future. He advised the students to prepare well for the future. He added that Africans should stop emulating western powers, saying ‘rather Africans should come together as one to create a new Africa’.
