The first Undersecretary in the National Ministry of Petroleum and Mining on Thursday during the award of PETRONAS scholarships to 13 South Sudanese students to study in Malaysia urged youths to compete with old people to get Jobs.
Marcher Achiek said the aged would not surrender the country to young people who are not competitive.
National Education ministry Undersecretary Michael Lopuke called on the students to be humble and ambassadors of South Sudan in Malaysia.
He attributed the current crisis in the country to leadership mismanagement of decisions.
PETRONAS said with new 13 students, the number of South Sudanese learners increased to 78 since 2000, adding that they graduated 40 students and another 25 still studying in University Teknologi PETRONAS.
