Youth & Sports Minister proposes scientific, technical education for youth

Youth and Sports Minister Len Eugene Nagbe has said scientific and technical education for the country’s youthful population is a precondition to economic growth in Liberia.

Minister Nagbe said,  if Liberia’s economy must develop, the education system must first plan on producing middle-level technicians with the required knowledge and capability to solve some of the country’s technological problems.
He named some of the technical areas as supply of adequate electricity, maintenance of roads, water and sanitation and drilling of the upcoming oil wells.
Minister Nagbe made the statement at  the weekend when he served as keynote speaker at the 2013/2014 64th commencement of the Booker Washington Institute (BWI) in Kakata.
He noted that the only way for Liberia to achieve a middle-income status as conceived under Vision 2030 is for Liberians, especially the country’s young generation, to acquire the necessary marketable skills.
According to him, this will qualify, make them attractive and enable them to compete for the jobs that will come online when the concessions start full operations.
