"Education An Opportunity To Serve Your Nation," VP Boakai
By Wilfred Gortor

MONROVIA, December 20 (LINA) - Vice President Joseph Boakai has called on graduates of the Grand Gedeh County Community College (GGCCC) to relish the noble act of service to country and humanity as they have obtained education.

VP Boakai observed that many educated people in Liberia today do not consider their education as an opportunity to serve their nation and people, butinstead only think about cheating and plundering, thereby keeping their people and country poor and destitute.

VP Boakai made the call over the weekend at the first commencement convocation of the Grand Gedeh County Community College (GGCCC) in Zwedru, Grand Gedeh County.

"As a son of Lofa County, and a proud Liberian, I was given the opportunity by President (Samuel K.) Doe to serve my country in various capacities and I did serve in the best way I knew how," VP Boakai noted.

He added: "I can never complain that President Doe ever denied me the privilege to serve my country irrespective of my county of origin. He knew I could serve my nation to the best of my ability. And I am glad that he had confidence in my ability to serve and to deliver."

Boakai said all Liberians, including those in leadership, should be included in providing opportunities to serve the nation irrespective of county or tribe.

Speaking on the theme: "Education for Service and Reconciliation: A call to the GGCCC Graduates," he noted that the strides the nation has made as a consequence of the present Government giving unique opportunities to young emerging leaders through education, shows how far the nation and its people have come in providing equal opportunities for all its citizens irrespective of where they live.

He said the utmost importance attached to education by the government is clearly underscored in the establishment of strategic county community colleges with GGCCC being a prime example.
