By Richard D. Baysah, LINA Margibi County Correspondent

KAKATA, June 21 (LINA) – A member of the Board of Governors of the Booker Washington Institute (BWI), Alexander B. Cummings, has said if Liberia is to develop rapidly, government should prioritize vocational and technical education on the national development agenda.

Speaking when he officially turned over a 350 KVA generator to the BWI administration in Kakata, Margibi County Monday, Cummings said the gesture was aimed at improving electricity at the institution for the smooth running of the school.

Cummings said there is a compelling need for technical education for the country to experience the kind of rapid growth and development the citizens are yearning for.

He also called on the government to provide the needed support to BWI, which is the country’s premier technical-vocational institute to ensure it provides the kind of quality training that will lead to quality services to the country and its people.

He said the donation of the generator was based on the request of the Principal who cited the issue of electricity as one of the major challenges the institution was faced with.

Receiving the generator, the Principal of BWI, Attorney Harris Fomba Tarnue said the institute was deeply grateful to Mr. Cummings for the timely intervention.
