Many young people are unable to build family lives. Hence the number of children born out of wedlock is increasing.

Escape is becoming a way out for the male youth and hanging out in street corners for cash is becoming a way out for many female youths. Sexually transmitted diseases, hypertension and diabetes are now putting on young faces. A whole generation is under threat.

There is need for answers to the vexed questions of our times and all Gambians should abandon divisive propaganda and focus on the threat to national survival –Poverty. All poor people should unite to talk about and fight poverty.
