Assorted materials valued over US$150.00 have been presented to the Township of Louisianan by 80 students from the Africa Methodist Episcopal University or AMEU.
The materials, which include one wheelbarrow, one bag of white wash, a pack of candies and biscuits, two rakes, dozens of washing and bath soap, Fenol central disinfectant, carton of Pop Tile Soap, three shovels, two grass cutters, cartoon of cholera and cutlasses.
Presenting the items on behalf of his colleagues, Student Prince N. Weah, says they were gratified that the AME University could contribute to the development of Louisianan.He discloses that the students, who are reading Public Administration, Sociology and English, among others, could not visit the township without identifying with the place.
Speaking earlier, Instructor Darlington A. P. Smith, who took the students on a field visitation to Louisiana Township, expresses gratitude to the leaders of the township for the smooth development of the area.
Mr. Smith continues that the intent of the students’ visit was to intellectually interact with the leadership of Louisiana, including youth of the area, including sports.
During the intellectual interaction held at the newly constructed Louisiana Town Hall, the students asked several questions regarding the function and structure of local government, education and health facilities, source of income generation by residents and youth and the sale of dangerous drug substances.
Responding to the many inquiries from the AME University students were the Commissioner of Louisiana Township Solomon Miller and the Council Secretary-General Mr. Wilton Saysay.
The two local officials adequately addressed all of the students’ inquiries, lamenting that the township through the intervention of the traditional devil has been able to stop sales of dangerous substances to youth of the area.
According to them, the first action taken by the township leadership did not produced sufficient result as dealers continue to trade the substance to people, thereby craving the intervention of the traditional devil, which put the situation under control. Following indoor interaction, the male and female teams of the AME University clashed with the youth of Louisiana in both soccer and kickball.
