LIBERIA: Mayor Koijee Suggests Sanitation Clubs In MCSS Schools
(LINA) – In order to effectively enhance the issue of sanitation in the City of Monrovia and its environs, Mayor Jefferson T. Koijee has stressed the need to establish sanitation clubs in all Monrovia Consolidated School System (MCSS) schools.
“Let’s begin creating sanitation clubs in the various high schools, which will help everyone to change their mind set, including students in schools, about waste management.
“We need to deal with the minds of the people to change their mentality and clean their various homes, communities and other public areas in order to live in a safe and clean environment and stop waiting for MCC alone to do all. So let us begin taking responsibility of cleaning our City,” Koijee stated.
Speaking at the MCSS new student leadership induction ceremony at the weekend at the D. Twe campus in New Kru Town, Bushrod Island, outside Monrovia. The Mayor said cleanliness in any city is not only the job of the Mayor, but the entire citizenry.
He said “We the citizens of Monrovia must take the lead and give our City a facelift,” adding that waste collection and disposal is very expensive in Liberia and the world at large.”
Koiji added: “With your collaboration, we can keep our City clean so that it can be compared to the best and decent cities across the world.”
At time the same time, the MCC boss has promised the MCSS full support in order to tutor the students in the best way to ensure that they come up with the best results in the upcoming West Africa Senior Schools Certificate Exam (WASSCE).
However, Mayor Koijee is calling on the best teachers in various subjects, including Mathematics, Chemistry, English among others to come together and start tutoring the government schools students under a single umbrella,
The Lord Mayor promised to take full responsibility of students feeding while on campus.
Koijee disclosed that the Monrovia City Council will provide food to students who will be participating in the process during their academic excellent studies.
Major Koijee then congratulated President George M. Weah for his intervention in terms of paying the national school examination fees across Liberia and the free tuition at the University of Liberia.
He observed that these actions are making a lot of positive impact in the lives of young students nowadays, adding that before then, parents would struggle for school fees throughout and later begin looking to pay exam fees which was so disheartening for less fortunate parents and students who are orphans.
