According to him, government that believes in education must pay teachers and build schools, adding that, teacher produce presidents, professors, medical doctors, lawmakers, among others; and if they are not pleased, the nation could fall.
He made the assertion when he served as Guest Speaker at the 13th graduation ceremony of the Apostolic Faith School System Faith Mission Academy on the Old Road in Sinkor.
Aspirant Morlu added that people always talk about corruption in the school systems in Liberia but fail to mention the hardship teachers are encountering that need to be addressed.
The Coalition for Democratic Change Vice Chairman for Operations noted, if the welfare of the kids is not prioritized, there will be no democracy.
He mentioned that there has not been much focus placed on education as government places emphasis on recurrent budget expenditure, noting that the kids are Liberia’s next group of leaders and their educational needs must be prioritized.
He added that if elected as District 10 Representative, he will build a high school that will accommodate children whose parents cannot afford to send them to school.
Morlu, however, cautioned parents to put their children’s education first before personal interest, because the children are ones who will help them during their retirement age.
The tough talking Liberian politician averred that if his CDC Standard Bearer George Weah is elected president of Liberia, he will take the issue of child education paramount among others national issues.
