Businessman Nudges Youths To Utilize Local College
By S. Kannay Ziamo, LINA Nimba County Correspondent

GANTA, September 21 (LINA) - A businessman in Nimba County has challenged youths to take advantage of the proximity of the Nimba County Community College (NCCC) to prepare themselves for the competing job market.

Tomah Seh Floyd, who is proprietor of the Jungle Water Group Investment, observed that the establishment of the college is a relief to many Nimbaians facing difficulties in traveling to Monrovia in pursuit of college education due to the high cost of living in the capital city.

He proffered the challenge in his keynote address at the fifth anniversary celebration of the NCCC in Sanniquillie City, Nimba County Monday.

Floyd said it is better for young people to equip themselves ahead of opportunities, adding that “preparation before opportunity is the best formula for a successful life.”

He hailed President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf for the establishment of the college in the county and challenged young people to make maximum use of the facility.

In remarks at the program, NCCC President Dr. Yah D. Gono lauded efforts by the Liberian government, the county administration and Legislative Caucus which has made the college one of the best in the country.

Established in 2011, the NCCC has contributed to the country's education system through the training of Liberians in Mining and Geology, General Agriculture, Nursing, Criminal Justice, Business Management and Accounting.
