Liberia: Inquirer Boss Lauds Muslim Congress School

The Managing Editor of the INQUIRER Newspaper, Mr. Philip N. Wesseh has lauded the Muslim Congress High School in Monrovia for the high level of discipline at the school over the years. "Since I joined the mainstream of the journalism in this country over the years, I have not heard of any disturbances or chaotic situation at this institution by students, "he said on Wednesday this week on the school campus on Mechlin Street.

Speaking at the induction ceremony of the senior class of the school, Mr. Wesseh urged the students to keep such a good record as they prepare themselves for future leadership. He said the country needs people who are disciplined and that beginning this in school was necessary.

Mr. Wesseh also praised the administration and the teaching staff for the level of academic excellence at the school. He said he was not surprised that the school is among several schools in the country that have been selected to sit the high exams of the West African Examinations Council (WAEC).

To the newly installed officers, the INQWUIRER boss challenged them that in order for them to succeed, they have to ensure that there is transparency, accountability and tolerance.

"Always make sure to give account of funds selected and make sure to run an open administration; do not do things in secrecy as this will create room for speculation and misinformation," Mr. Wesseh stated.

As for the student body, especially the seniors, Mr. Wesseh, a part time teacher at the United Methodist University, reminded them that electing their leaders was not the end as they have to cooperate with them and at times make demands for the collective good of them all. He said it is wrong to only elect leaders and fail to ensure that they do what they promised for which they were elected.

During the occasion, Mr. Wesseh promised to assist the dux of the senior class with graduation fees and also presented a purse to student Saikou M. Sall of the 12th grade class for impressively giving a Quranic recitation.
