Liberian Students Admonished to Prioritize Education

A 2012 graduate of the University of Liberia graduate school, Mr.Thomas P.Nyenswah has admonished Liberian students to prioritize their education so that they will be effective, efficient and productive future leaders.

The Liberian educator said the failure of students to take their education seriously could render them unable to become future leaders.

Mr.Nyenswah made the statement on Wednesday at his New Georgia, Caldwell residence, when he graduated with Master Degree Business and Public Administration (MBPA) from the graduate school of the University of Liberia.

The program brought together students from the D-Twe Memorial high school in the Borough of New Kru Town as well as permanent citizens of Liberia including the former Sinoe County Development superintendent, Mr. Joseph N.Jah who is currently suffering from a stroke.

The young master holder said when the youth are adequately educated; they will be in the position to compete with other students in the sub-region.

He noted that when youth are competence, they will be able to participate in the reconstruction, reconciliation, unity and peace agenda of Liberia in the aftermath of the 14 years of civil conflict.

He said that in order for the youth to become good future leaders, they should do away with buying grades for passing, but they should strive for excellent for a brighter future.

He noted that grades buying by students have the ability to tarnish the image of the country in the comity of nations.

He warned teachers in the country to immediate desist from selling grades to students for their personal gains.

The D-Twe high school English instructor has commended President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf for prioritizing youth education in the society.

Earlier, the former ailing Development Superintendent, Mr. Jah has urged Liberians to put aside their tribal, sectional, political and religious differences and work together for the betterment of the country.

He said it will be impossible for Sinoe County to achieve its development agenda in the midst of tribal division.
