Pres. Weah Vows To Re-Introduce Cadet Program

MONROVIA: In an effort to empower the youths in Liberia, President George Manneh Weah has promised to reintroduce Cadet Program at various ministries and agencies across Liberia.

The Liberian leader emphasized that the reintroduction of the Cadet Program was intended to give young Liberians an opportunity to get job experience while in school to adequately prepare them for the job market once they satisfactorily complete their educational sojourn.

A cadet program is a form of training program that combines practical and on-the-job experience and formal, facilitated training for young people.

Speaking at a district engagement rally in District Number Four in Montserrado County, President Weah disclosed that he has already instructed the Finance Minister to reintroduce the program during the second term of his presidency.

The Liberian leader added that the program will be tailored for Liberian students from grades 9 to12 where selected school-going kids on the program will be compensated financially while learning lifetime skills for the larger society.

The Liberian Chief Executive recalled his days as a cadet during the administration of former President Samuel K. Doe where he was recruited as a switch board technician and later learned how to repair phones and the communications line.

He maintained that even though the compensation wasn’t enough but the knowledge gained from the program made it exciting and useful.

President Weah asserted that the reintroduction of the program will ensure that the government provides some sort of financial relief to struggling parents under the compensation scheme.

He added that the program will give students the opportunity to earn a little sum which will help take the burden off the shoulders of the shoulders of their struggling parents.

Meanwhile, the Liberia Chief Executive rallied the public to give his administration a second term to enable him and his “able lieutenants” complete the good work they have started.

The Liberian President attributed his success to the huge number of people he has identified with through his humanitarian gestures.

“I have a success story which is the number of people I have made through my good work. So let them show their part of the success story” President Weah stated as he called on the opposition leaders to tell their success stories.

The Liberian President called on his supporters to continue to be optimistic about their “One Round Victory” come October 10, 2023 at the ballot box.

“Young people, First Time Voters, this is our time, this is our country and this is our moment so let’s seize it,” President Weah noted.

He added: “Give the coalition 12 years so that we will compare ours to their 12 years.” Courtesy: LINA
