AMEU Graduates Urged To Eschew Negative Vices
By Ballah M. Kollie, LINA

MONROVIA, July 29 (LINA) -Vice President Joseph N. Boakai has urged the 2015 graduates of the African Methodist Episcopal University (AMEU) to resist vices that undermine the quality of knowledge acquired during their studies.

He outlined the vices as lazy mindedness, hatred and envy, lack of patriotism and hate of country as well as fueling disunity in society.

In his keynote address at the 15th Commencement Convocation of the AMEU at the Winners’ Chapel International Church in Congo Town Wednesday, Boakai expressed optimism that the graduates have prepared well to accomplish their dreams.

“I am sure you have heard the story about the three kinds of people in this world; Well, keep that story in mind as I draw your attention to the story of David and Goliath in the Holy Bible.

“When a young pastor told me that when David went against Goliath, he picked up five stones, but he used only one. It is said that the other four stones were dropped
in Liberia, all of which constitute the vices I outlined,” VP Boakai indicated.

He described the graduation day for AMEU as historic, especially when it started as a dream fed by hopes and nurtured by diligent pursuit now blossomed into reality.

Over 300 students received academic degrees in various disciplines, including Theology, Religious Education, Sociology and English.

Others are Political Science, Mass Communication, Economics, Public Administration, Management and Accounting.
