The son of former Liberian Vice President, late Harry Fomba Moniba, has urged President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf to enforce all government policies on the books. Clarence Moniba said lots of good policies are on the books that need to be enforced by the government to improve the standard of life of the people of Liberia, particularly the youths.
Clarence, who just arrived from the United States of America, urged the Sirleaf-led government to prioritize youth education to put the country on par with the rest of the world. He said his dream has always been to come home to help the young people of Liberia to achieve quality education after the death of his father.
The NewDawn caught up with Clarence and interviewed him in Paynesville, while he donating books, pens and other school materials to several schools in the ELWA Community where he currently resides.
According to him, the current government policies for young people are good, but urged President Sirleaf to vigorously enforce those policies instead of creating more. Clarence praised the government for the level of freedom of speech being exercised in the country, but challenged Liberian youths to believe in themselves and think big in order to move ahead.
He said young people should see themselves as society contributors, and disclosed that he has established a foundation in honor of his lad father to help high school students in paying their fees.
Clarence noted that the Harry Moniba Foundation will pay tuition fees for students meeting the minimum grade average of 80 percent in their various schools. He said the foundation will focus on the agricultural sector to encourage Liberian students to take interest in agriculture.
Though he did not state clearly schools currently benefiting the scholarship, added that his home County Lofa, will be the first county to be targeted outside Montserrado.
