(TAP) - President Kais Saied visited Friday Kairouan to attend the Mawlid celebration. He visited the headquarters of the Governorate where he met with the locals who voiced their economic, social and environmental concerns.

Kais Saied also met with a group of youths who have staged sit-ins for months at the main entrance of the governorate calling for their right to work.

The President affirmed the legitimacy of their demands stressing the need to find solutions by combining all efforts. He underscored that protesting is a legitimate right yet it should lead to developing concrete visions so that young people serve as a force of proposals.

Speaking to journalists upon his arrival in Oqba Ibn Nafaa Mosque, the President stressed the need to address real issues, namely providing a decent life to Tunisian citizens. “We are capable to achieve with our will, our determination as well as our inexhaustible human capital,” he pointed out.

In a statement issued by the Presidency of the Republic, the Head of State added that real mechanisms will be made available to Tunisians to help them achieve what they are looking for and suggest solutions. “We are not selling dreams. We are determined to help Tunisian citizens build a new Tunisia and make their dreams a reality,” he added.

Then, the President of the Republic chaired a ceremony marking the celebration of Mawlid in Oqba Ibn Nafaa Mosque. A lesson about the life of Prophet Mohammed was given by Director of the Centre of the Islamic Studies, Sheikh Mohamed Habib Allani in the mosque.

Saied then presented awards to the winners of the Hadith National Memorisation Competition.

The ceremony was attended by Premier Youssef Chahed, government members, MPs, the Mufti of the Republic, political party activists, national organisation representatives as well as ambassadors of Arab and Muslim countries. The ceremony was also attended by a large number of citizens.
