ZWEDRU, June 7 (LINA) –The Corporate Affairs Manager of the Putu Iron Ore Mining (PIOM) company in Grand Gedeh County, S.M. Bangoura, has said merit in the educational system is a cornerstone for capacity building for national development.

Under the MOUs, 40 students from four private high schools: Bishop Juwle, R.B.
