‘Education – A Strong Pillar Of CDC Govt.’
– Says Rep. Seboe
Montserrado County District 16 Representative Dixon Seboe has said education remains the strongest pillar of the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) government.
“Education remains the strongest pillar of President (George) Weah and his government until he leaves office,” Representative Seboe emphasized.Speaking at the dedication of the first public library constructed by the New Kru Town Association in the Americas (NEKTAA) by President Weah in the Borough at the weekend, Seboe said NEKTAA decided to open a modern library for the benefit of the students in fulfillment of the President’s agenda.
He pointed out that with the construction of this modern and highly equipped library, students of the Borough of New Kru Town can be afforded the opportunity to read and enhance their knowledge.
According to him, libraries are not meant to be warehouses of books and, as such, parents should challenge their children to read thoroughly by ensuring that they make adequate use of the library and its resource materials.
“The reason for which some of us are where we are is because our parents ensured that we read and studied hard; and I am challenging you the parents to do likewise to ensure that your children become the next future leaders of our great country,” the lawmaker stressed.
He encouraged them to make sure their children come to the library to read, noting, “President Weah is determined to change Liberia and that change depends on the educated youthful population.”
NEKTAA, which comprises sons and daughters of New Kru Town who are residing in the United States of America, decided to give back to the society from which they hail by constructing and furbishing a modern library for students to read and research to meet future challenges.
According to the Liberia News Agency, the project which is valued at over US$40,000 is also intended to complement the government’s effort aimed at improving the country’s education sector in fulfillment of one of the pillars of its Pro-Poor Agenda, which is education.
