Speaker of the People’s National Assembly, Ibrahim Boughali, called on the young generation to draw lessons from the double anniversary of February 24 (the creation of the General Union of Algerian Workers and the nationalization of hydrocarbons) in order to put their potentials at the service of “the effort aimed at building a new Algeria that enjoys independence and which imposes respect on everyone.”
Mr. Boughali said in a message on the occasion of the celebration yesterday, Thursday, of the anniversary of the nationalization of hydrocarbons, which is “one of the many remarkable days that Algeria’s history abounds with, as it reflects the full commitment of youth who are loyal youth and faithful to their homeland.”
He stressed that “in a critical period in the history of Algeria, a group of young Algerians managed, with few capabilities, to ensure the continuation of the oil and gas industry and achieve the gain of completing the extension of its sovereignty over its wealth and natural resources.”
With this step, Mr. Boughali adds, Algeria “not only severed the ties of dependency, but also inspired sister countries to follow in the same footsteps. It was thus inspiring and proactive as it was able with a bold political decision and a fervent youth to bring Algeria’s resources under its full sovereignty.”
Meanwhile, the Speaker of the People’s National Assembly called on the youth of today to “show the same will that the youth of yesterday showed, and to be at the same level of determination in order to put their potentials at the service of the effort aimed at building a new Algeria that enjoys independence and which imposes respect on everyone.”
Mr. Boughali also praised the efforts of the General Union of Algerian Workers in “leading the world of work and contributing to mobilizing the active forces to move forward in building the new Algeria”.
He stressed the need for this anniversary to be “an important reminder to this union to strengthen its position and promote its participation in the economic and social development, and to be at the forefront of the ranks defending the rights of those who strive to achieve wealth and build the economy.”
