ACCRA, GHANA: President Joseph Nyuma Boakai of Liberia has urged young Liberian students at the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA) to remain steadfast in their pursuit of higher education.

Speaking on Sunday, June 30, 2024, during his trip to Accra, Ghana, President Boakai emphasized that Liberia’s progress and development can become a reality with the help of conscious-minded citizens who serve as ambassadors of change against vices that deter potential investors.
“We are determined to change our country for the betterment of every Liberian,” President Boakai said. “We want people like you to serve as ambassadors of change by helping to shape some of the wrong narratives about our administration back home.”
The President highlighted the government’s ongoing efforts to attract valuable investors to Liberia, aiming to create jobs and economic opportunities for ordinary citizens. He also addressed the students’ concerns, which included delays in tuition payments and other allowances, and promised swift intervention.
“We will investigate the situation,” President Boakai assured the students, empathizing with the challenges they face.
Currently, 13 Liberians from both the private and public sectors are pursuing master’s degrees in various professional disciplines at GIMPA under a government-sponsored scholarship program through the Liberia Institute of Public Administration (LIPA).
The student representatives expressed their gratitude to President Boakai for his leadership and exemplary performance within the first six months of his administration. They thanked him for listening to their concerns and for his impromptu audience.
“We are happy for the audience provided to us on such short notice. This truly is a mark of good leadership,” they said.
The Liberian scholars at GIMPA were represented by members of their leadership, including Mr. Bedford Quie, Mr. Eric Kpelleh, and Ms. T. Franniel Powell.
