Vice President Joseph N. Boakai has stressed the importance of vocational Technical Institutions as critical to the building of the nation as the youthful Liberian population need the technical skills to take up positions in the economy  including the emerging energy and gas sectors.

He said it is the responsibility of Government to educate its citizens, but when private institutions and individuals undertake programs in the area of education, the Government of Liberia will partnership with them to make sure that such programs succeed.

The Vice President was speaking Friday when he toured the campus of the Dujar Community College in Kerbah in the Township of Gardinersville outside Monrovia to acquaint himself with activities of that Community College offering Associate degrees in electrical, mechanical, civil engineering as well as in Agriculture and Professional Nursing.

Vice President Boakai describes the Dujar Community as a bold initiative, saying that the Government of Liberia has interest in this program because the Dujar Community has helped to capture the youthful population in that part of the country in their educational programs.
Other people will not do what you can do for yourself, Vice President Boakai cautioned Liberians, pointing out that he was pleased with what was going on at the Dujar Community College and assured the administration of the college of governmentís intervention so that the college will not close down.

Meanwhile, Vice President Boakai has described the fallen Legislator, Moses Tandanpollie as a stalwart, a sound man who advocated on matters of concern, commanded the respect of his colleagues and Liberians because of his stance on national issues. He was speaking in Gardinersville outside Monrovia at the Dujar Community College.
