Chief Urges More Schools, qualified Teachers

ZORZOR, March 9 (LINA) - Local chief Oldman Zubah Kollie has called on the government to ensure that more public schools are constructed and qualified teachers deployed throughout the country to increase access to school for young Liberians.

The chief noted that children deserve quality education as future leaders, noting that they should not be subjected to poor quality education because of where they find themselves or the status of their parents.

Oldman Zubah Kollie, who is General Town Chief of Buluyeama Clan in Zorzor District, said it was gratifying to note that President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has always identified quality and affordable education, health, energy and security as top priorities of her government.

Oldman Kollie told the Liberia News Agency at the weekend that for the past years citizens of Buluyeama Clan have consistently advocated for government to institute measures to improve the quality of education in public schools, especially in Buluyeama Clan in Lofa County.

The people of the Clan have also advocated for the construction of public schools, clinics, roads and other development projects that are currently lacking in the clan.

Meanwhile, Chief Kollie is commending government for taking educational issues as a top priority, noting that this will help prepare the youth for future leadership roles.
