Orator Wants Liberians Work To Effect Economic Change

By Wilfred Gortor, LINA

GREENVILLE, July 27 (LINA) – The orator of Liberia’s168th Independence Day observance has urged citizens to strive honestly to improve their capacities so that the nation can transcend its current economic status.

Ambassador Charles Minor said Liberians must improve themselves educationally as well as expand their horizons by acquiring technical skills which will enable them compete with foreigners in the job and business markets.

Delivering the oration in Greenville, Sinoe County on Monday, Minor also urged the government to curtail the issuance of residence and work permits to foreigners who are not investing in Liberia’s economy as well as to those lacking the skills to contribute to the nation’s growth.

Minor believes that for too long Liberians have engaged into negative undertakings and pessimistic activities, but noted that citizens must now begin to use their creative imagination and help improve themselves, their communities and the nation at-large.

According to him most of the nation’s problems can only be solved if individual Liberians see themselves as ambassadors of change by setting goals as to what improvement or change they will want to see in their lives in the not too distant future.

In what will be recorded in the Liberian history as the most memorable national festivity, Liberia’s 168th independence ceremony jointly hosted by two south-eastern neighboring counties, Sinoe and Grand Kru, brought together government officials, ambassadors accredited to Liberia and well-wishers.

Beginning in the morning hours in Greenville, Sinoe County, throngs of people converged to witness the official ceremony of the 168th independence of Liberia in the colorful and well-decorated J. Dominic Bing City Hall.

The ceremony was preceded by other activities, including a Thanksgiving and Intercessory Service in Barclayville, Grand Kru County organized on Sunday by the Liberia Council of Churches.
