The Liberian Vice President was speaking at the weekend during the EPAG Round Four Graduation program held at the Monrovia Christian Fellowship Center in the Monrovia suburb of Sinkor.
He noted that the Gender Ministry finally took the thoughtful and bold step of injecting a bigger dose of gender sensitivity in the demographics of the trainee population.
VP Boakai stressed that this bold step comes from the hard reality that both young males and females share similar needs when it comes to preparing themselves to serve their country.
He expressed optimism that with the graduation of 500 young people which included 100 young men, other youths across the country will find motivation to embark on productive exercises that will transform them into good and productive citizens.
