The Initiative should also Have a branched liaison with the Security Institutions and platforms in order to combat internal security crisis.
The Initiative Should Organise empowernment programs, Both in trainings and job creation which should be cut across every Division.
The Initiative should Grant temporary TV interviews, Spotting out societal problems and providing adequate Solutions thereafter to help the government.
