Rep. Youngblood Warns Youths Against Politicians
By Decontee M. Wesseh

MONROVIA, August 31 (LINA) - Montserrado County District #9 Representative Munah Youngblood has warned young Liberians to be shrewd about politicians they vote for in the 2017 presidential and legislative elections.

“You have to be smart and fast thinkers in electing people into political offices,” she told a group of young Liberians during a stakeholder dialogue organized by the Montserrado Student Union (MONSU|) at the University of Liberia main campus on Capitol Hill in Monrovia recently.

Youngblood who, along with some government officials were honored by MONSU for their contributions to society, said she refused to tread the path of those politicians, but obligates herself to identifying with her constituents when called upon.

“It will be ashamed if I do not identify with those that elected me because if you are good enough for dinner, then you are also good enough for breakfast,” she added.

Youngblood noted that the honor has encouraged her to do more to ensure that young people are given the kind of education required in this Century.

She disclosed that she has been in search of an implementing partner in carrying out youth programs and pledged to work with MONSU, saying, “These are the people we are looking for to build the new Liberia.”

“They are willing to work without asking for anything in return; putting all other interests aside and working for the betterment of their peers and the country,” she added.

Delivering the keynote address, Assistant Foreign Minister Alieu Nyei challenged the students to take their learning seriously, and warned them against complacency which, according to him, can lead to backwardness.
