By Wellington Patrick, LINA Nimba County Correspondent
SANNIQUELLIE, April 27 (LINA) -The Chief Executive Officer of Jungle Water Incorporated, a mineral water company in Nimba County, Floyd Seh Tomah, has urged students to exhibit honesty and hard work in their academic pursuit.
Floyd, also a renowned diamond trader in Nimba County, disclosed that the secret
behind his business success is honesty and hard work.
He made the statement on Friday, April 25, when he delivered the keynote address at the Career Day Program of the Nimba County Community College (NCCC) held in the auditorium of the college.
Over 2,000 tertiary and secondary school students attended the Career Fair program.
He informed the audience that being the child of a single parent did not suppress his dream, but rather challenged him to prove his mental ability to compete for survival.
Tomah said his company has many job opportunities, but pointed out that employment opportunities provided by his companies are intended for only honest and hardworking individuals.
Tomah, who dropped out of the engineering department of the then William V.S. Tubman Technical College (now known as the Tubman University in Maryland) in 1990, said his ambition was to become a famous mechanical engineer.
The top entrepreneur said he has chosen to remain a businessman, helping the under-privileged through charity, and vowed never to venture into politics.
NCCC Vice President for Academic Affair, Daiba Tozay, told the Liberia News Agency that the Career Day program was designed to motivate students at the college to access opportunities in their fields of study.
Tozay said the program was also intended to guide secondary students in making rational academic choices while preparing for college education.
Statements were also made by representatives of GT Bank, Ministry of Gender, Judicial Branch, Agriculture Relief Services, Conservation International, ArcelorMittal Liberia, among others.
