“Illiteracy A Threat To Security......

By Calvin Brooks

MONROVIA, June 4 (LINA) - Sinoe County Senator Milton Teahjay says high illiteracy rate in any country is a threat to national security.

He noted that Liberia’s security will be at risk if her illiteracy rate continues to remain high because an illiterate group can be used to destabilize the country for any amount of money.

Senator Teahjay declared that the Legislature will therefore ensure that enough money is pumped into the educational sector for Liberia to have a literate population to guarantee development and peace.

The Sinoe County Lawmaker made the assertion at a program marking the official turnover of office to the new Education Ministry held in the conference room of the ministry on Third Street in the Monrovia suburb of Sinkor.

He pointed out that when Liberians are educated, they will not tolerate any form of instability from any group of people, whether internal or external that will undermine the progress and development of their country.

He indicated that the increment of the education budget is vital for the maintenance of peace and stability in Liberia, emphasizing that when the citizens are enlightened educationally they would be decisive in their actions.

Senator Teahjay stressed that education is essential to transform the living conditions of the people and the sustenance of security, and that the Legislature will therefore do everything possible to support the country educational system.
