Speaker Tyler Resents ‘Defiant Culture’ In Liberia

By Ballah Kollie, Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, March 4 (LINA) - House Speaker J. Alex Tyler has frowned at the manner in which the culture of defiance has become entrenched in the Liberian society.

Addressing citizens of Bong County at the Gbarnga Administrative Building over the weekend, Speaker Tyler noted that the culture of defiance is so entrenched in the Liberian society, that it has become what he called “an inter-generational malaise.”

He attributed this to youth unemployment, which has rendered them idle, noting that these were recipes for disaster.

He also named lack of skills and unpreparedness of people who are unwilling to invest in their lives, as additional factors responsible for the way defiant acts have permeated Liberian society.

According to Speaker Tyler the act of young people being defiant to older people can be curtailed, when parents themselves begin to show respect for their children.

He also recommended the involvement of religious institutions, the Church and the Mosque, as well as the Traditional Council and the schools to help find a solution to the current state of affairs.
