A member of th business community in Kakata, Margibi County, Kofi A. Kosiah has urged Liberian youths to be serious and not only focus on the government to do all for them.
He said as per his own assessment over the years, many young people in the Liberian society were involved in what he referred to as non-beneficial ventures that only impede the growth, including alcoholism, as well as various forms of substance abuse.
According to him, while it was true that many young were now in school, disciple and respect must accompany such educational sojourn because, according to him, education without discipline was dangerous to the moral progress of society.
Kosiah noted that lack of discipline and seriousness among the many of young people of Liberia, was a serious obstacle to their success finding and maintaining jobs-something for which they use the government as scape-goat.
The youthful Margibi business asserted that while it was true that the Government of Liberia needed to create more jobs for its citizens, the issues of adequate preparation and disciple among the young people must first be tackled.
He emphasized the need for the government to help the Liberia Business Association (LIBA) in other to build the capacity of young business men and women, as well as empower them to do their own businesses, other than heavily relying on it.
