NAYMOTE To Build Capacity Of Students Under Law, Justice Program
The National Youth Movement for Transparent Elections (NAYMOTE) has intensified its law and justice program for high school students in three counties to build their legal knowledge and skills.
Making the disclosure on a local radio talk show in Monrovia Thursday, NAYMOTE Program Manager Aaron Weah-Weah said the exercise under its electoral governance program will enable the students to actively and positively participate in the governance process of the country.The NAYMOTE official noted that the program provided an opportunity for the students to come face-to-face with experienced Police officers and lawyers who provided them education on the legal and judicial system of Liberia.
He pointed that the program also seeks to advance Liberia’s justice system for the promotion of peace and democracy, and to also build a society where the young people will see the police as partners.
Weah-Weah named the three counties that benefited from the training as Bong, Nimba and Montserrado.
Meanwhile, the NAYMOTE Program Manager has disclosed that the institution is soliciting funds from donors and partners to establish educational clubs in high schools and universities across the country.
He noted that the students’ participation in this program was overwhelming, adding, “They have received calls from legal practitioners such as lawyers, as well as police officers, and school administrators encouraging them to extend the program to various high schools and universities across the country.
According to him, NAYMOTE is also seeking to partner with the Liberia National Police (LNP) and some key lawyers at the Temple of Justice, as well as members of the Supreme Court Bench, to ensure that they provide their legal expertise to improve the program.
