A former Minister of Information, Culture, and Tourism(MICAT), Dr. Laurence K. Bropleh, has declared that Liberia needs no ‘generational change’ as been preached by others on the various airwaves.
Dr. Bropleh observed that the country has many potential youths in several key positions in government and the private.
Against this backdrop, the former MICAT boss, now Communication Consultant at LoneStar Cell MTN, further declared that there is no need for any ‘generational change’ as being propounded by some Liberians.
He made these comments on Sunday, March 25, 2012 when he served as guest preacher at program marking the installation of officers-elect of the Administrative Board of the Little White Chapel Church.
Program marking the installation of officers-elect of the Administrative Board of the Little White Chapel Church was held at the church’s edifice in Logan Town on the Bushrod Island, outside Monrovia.
For sometimes now, some Liberians, mainly youth have been advocating for ‘generational change’. They claim the ‘old breed of politicians’ have failed the Liberian people and that there is a need for ‘generational change’. But this advocacy for ‘generational change’ has been received with mixed reactions.
There are some Liberian who support it, while others oppose it.
Speaking on the theme “A picture of a faithful leader” with reference from the book of Joshua, Dr. Bropleh said, what Liberia needs is a preparation of tomorrow’s leaders and not ‘generational change’, noting, ‘generational change’ does not lie in the presidency only.
He pointed out that every faithful leader must be obedience, credible and above all, has sense of responsibilities. These qualities, he further pointed out, would allow any leader to function his/her assigned duties well for the benefit of the nation.
Hear Dr. Bropleh: “No child that is not well prepared will ascend to the presidency of this nation. We will pray that this does not happen. Liberia doesn’t need anything like generational change. What we need is a prepared, able and credible leader.”
“Leadership is not about power, but about the equitability of your power. What you do to get yourself and your nation to the next level of development is what matters,” he added.
