We recognize every young person that puts their mind on the truth that the country is second to none”.Major Dahnsaw announced the date of the Second Edition of the LYA, by so doing he said it would be held on Saturday the 8th of May but before the Main day other activities would be exercised and these activities are: Meet and Greet of Nominees on the 7th of April, this is a channel for the Nominees and organizers to interact, this would enable the Organizers put the Nominees through all information that’s necessary as the voting process proceeds.
