GBARNGA: The Minister of State for Presidential Affairs, Nathaniel Falo McGill, has encouraged young graduates of the Dolokelen Gboveh High School in Gbarnga, Bong County, to love Liberia in order to reach greatness and maintain a strong democracy.

Minister McGill added that a patriot is someone who demonstrates love for family and friends by showing them respect and kindness at all times.
“A patriot is not selfish. He or she puts the needs of his/her country above all else. More importantly, he/she supports the development of the country by being a responsible citizen,” he emphasized.
Supporting the developmental agenda of the country, according to him, will hugely depend on God’s given talents that can be used in the supreme interest of the country and its people.
The State and Presidential Affairs Minister also cautioned the young graduates to resist empty rhetoric from those he termed as “failed politicians” with no examples of success to show.
Minister McGill intimated: “They would have done more to improve the standards of living of Liberians than the state we find ourselves in. They do not have the answers to Liberia’s problems. They had their time to perform and they did it so poorly.”

To pretend, according to Minister McGill, that Liberia has suddenly been transformed into a land of milk and honey runs contrary to the spirit of patriotism.
