LYEP Official Urges Liberians To Develop Good Character  
By David Seedee, LINA Bomi County Correspondent

TUBAMANBURG, July 1 (LINA) -The Coordinator of the Liberia Youth Employment Program (LYEP), Saidu Vasco Nyei, says Liberia needs men and women of sound mind and good character to develop the country.

Speaking at the closing exercises of the Bomi Junior High School in Tubmanburg at the weekend, Nyei said the only way to attain these qualities is to be educated.

“Only educated people with sound mind and distinct character will build the country. Therefore, you must prepare yourselves for the future challenge of building the country,” Nyei told the students.

He attributed the country’s backwardness today to the ignorance of its citizens, adding, that Liberia is one of the few countries where the older people are more educated than the younger people.

He said if the young people fail to educate themselves and prepare for the future challenge of nation building, the nation will remain backward.

Mr. Nyei emphasized that it is the responsibility of Liberians to build Liberia, adding, “The country is ours and we must shoulder its responsibility.”

Coordinator Nyei called on the students who are in the habit of disrespecting their instructors to desist, noting, “The men and women who stand before you to impart knowledge into you are the best people in our society.”

 

“While other people loot the resources of the country, these men and women have taken upon themselves to prepare the future generations of the nation,” he added.

He noted that any society where the young people are not educated is bound for chaos.

He then urged students to take their education seriously and refrain from alcohol and drug intake.
