“We Remain Committed To Protecting Our Cultural Instrument,” Kpardeh
By Decontee M. Wesseh, LINA

MONROVIA, May 27 (LINA)  - Deputy Information Minister Robert Kpardeh has assured the Ministry of Information commitment to protect the country’s cultural instruments and property.

Speaking Wednesday at the start of a two-day workshop organized by the ministry in collaboration with UNESCO at the Ministry of Information conference hall, Kpardeh noted that Liberia is behind because cultural practices have not been placed on the pedestal.

Kpardeh indicated that Information Minister Lewis Brown’s team at the ministry has the intention to go beyond the workshop and work with all stakeholders, the Legislature, Foreign and Justice Ministries in exerting efforts in this direction.

“If we as a government cannot lay emphasis on cultural practices, then we will have nothing to teach our children,” he said.

He thanked Assistant Minister for Culture Louise McMillian for demonstrating patriotism and exerting energy in her duty.

“We will remain supportive and will not oppose suggestions that will bring development for the cultural practices of our nation,” he emphasized.
