MUKAH: Tellian assemblyman Royston Valentine wants the youth here to be educated either in one form or another as part and parcel of human capital development.
He said it is therefore very important that they continue to be educated and given assistance.
He said the various programmes should be strengthened for human capital development in the Mukah division, among them, involving volunteerism activities and technological skills.
“When it comes to human capital development, we also want the issue of drug abuse and online gambling to be eradicated holistically so that it does not continue to cause lasting problems in today’s society,” he said at the Ramah Tamah Gawai Raya ceremony organised by the Mukah Division Resident’s Office which was held on Monday.
He added that a meeting with the Resident’s Office and related agencies would be held in the near future to discuss matters related to development that had been proposed previously.
“Therefore, the cooperation of all agencies is important in our efforts to develop the Mukah division, especially the Tellian area.
He pointed out that the Tellian area now has 88 longhouses and 16 villages which in total covers a large area which needs more attention from the Sarawak government in terms of channelling development.
During the ceremony, Rosyton also presented grants for the activities of several associations and organisations here.
Also present were Mukah Division acting Resident Safrie Saili, Sarawak Administrative Officer (SAO) Nolin Gendang, Mukah police chief DSP Muhamad Rizal Alias, community leaders and heads of departments and agencies in Mukah.
