The CEO of the institution in charge of the Rapid Entrepreneurship of Women and Youth (DER) was not kind to the young people who take the canoes to reach Europe. For him, the State has taken actions to fix young people in the country. Situating the responsibilities, Pope Amadou Sarr pointed an accusing finger at the young candidates for emigration.
1000 billion intended for young people for job creation
From the outset, the CEO of the DER will say that “People make the link between leaving and the need for a job. I will not do it quite simply, because there is no causal link between the departure to emigration and the question of employment ”. « This is an amalgam … We have decided to grant 1000 billion F Cfa to young people in Senegal at the request of the Head of State in his dynamic of job creation, ”he explains.
Young people alone responsible for their misfortunes
Pope Amadou Sarr reminds each other of more responsibilities. “We have to be responsible and tell it as it is. It is the responsibility of young people to leave fraudulently, to break the laws of friendly countries, to go to Spain, to enter a territory by breaking the elementary rules of respect for borders and that these people, a once there, were arrested, handcuffed, put in difficult conditions and repatriated. It is their responsibility and that of their families ”, he declares.
Illegal emigration a natural phenomenon
However, the CEO of the DER says that “Illegal emigration is a natural phenomenon that no one can fight”. He spoke on the sidelines of the launch of entrepreneurship week co-organized between the DER and Jokkolabs, an independent non-profit organization active in entrepreneurship.
