Rev. Enders Urges Liberian Youth to Make Education a Priority

District number 6 Representative, Rev. Samuel Enders, who runs a free school in his district located on the Robert field high way has urged Liberian youths to make education a priority to be able to transform their lives. Addressing a cross section of students over the weekend at the International Learning Institute (ILI) located in the Nagbe’s Town, around the SKD Sports Complex outside Monrovia, Rev Enders said individual transformation can only be achieved through the ability of education.

He said if Liberia is to boast of development, then majority of its people need to be educated, which is the key to success.  According to him, ‘the transformation of Liberia depends on how prepared the youths are to take advantage of the current provisions to acquire education’.

The program which aimed at fundraising and honoring eminent citizens, brought together government officials, some of which included Rev. Dr. Samuel Enders D#6 representative, Hon. Lawrence Morris representative, D#1 Montserrado county, Hon. E. Pam Belcher Taylor, mayor of the City of Paynesville.

Others were Mr. Frank Artus, a famous Liberia firm actor, Mr. Othinel Forte a writer, Mr. Daniel Dean sponsor of the ILI and Ms. Kpana Gaygay a Liberia author of a book entitle, “Daunting Years”.

The occasion was organized by the administration of the ILI in collaboration with the Chief Executive Officer Mrs. Mildren Dean of the ILI, and graced by musical interludes, Taekwondo exhibition, speeches, quotations, songs and dances by students.

Making their contribution towards the improvement of the ILI, the two lawmakers of district 1 and 6 donated fifty thousand Liberian dollars each. Rev. Enders further promised to purchase a school bus for the institution (ILI).

In a closing remark, the CEO of ILI Mrs. Mildred Dean expressed gratitude to both representatives for their contributions toward the institution, and to all who grace the occasion.

Although Representative Enders’ contribution and pledge is welcomed, some residents in the Rehab, Cooper Farm Community in District 6 strongly believe that he (Rep. Enders) has abandoned them. Recently, a cross section of residents in that part of the district visited the offices of Hon. Ender to discuss the possibility of building the bridge linking Cooper Farm/Rehab with the GSA Community, but the Man of God was nowhere to be found according to our sources.

Frontier strongly believes that Representative needs to take tours in the district to assess and begin to address the pressing needs of the residents because they (residents) overwhelmingly voted for him due to his running of a free school and a clinic in the district. This is the time for him to pay back through good laws, and programmes that will lift the residents out of abject poverty.
