The Representative of Electoral District #2 Prince Karmue Moye has turned over to the Educational System of the district more than five thousand textbooks. At the presentation of the books Friday, Rep. Moye said it was a manifestation of commitments made to the people during the 2011 elections to transform their lives for the better.
He said though the educational system in the district faces many challenges, Liberians need to take up the cause of helping government in whatever way they can. He clarified that the books are not garbage picked up from the dump site but up-to-date learning materials.
The lawmaker lauded the Friends of Moye in the US for their continuous efforts to contribute to the well being of the people of Jorquelleh District #2 as they were instrumental in packaging the books in the US.
Rep. Moye who is the co-chairman on Ways, Means, Finance and the Budget at the lower house of the Liberian Legislature has assured educational authorities of the government’s quest to increase budgetary allotment to schools in the country. He said gone are the days when the allotments to schools were centralized in Monrovia leaving the others in the hinterland to perish.
Receiving the books, the Education Officer of Kokoyah School District, George Garmeche lauded the lawmaker for the donation of the books. DEO Garmeche said not only has Rep. Moye been responsive to the plights of the people since his legislative ascendancy, but he has continued to be a real son of the people.
He noted the works of the lawmaker will be contributing factors to his unstoppable re-election in 2017. The DEO affirmed teachers’ commitment to ensuring that Liberians children are fully prepared to take on future responsibilities for their country that has just emerged from several years of civil disputes.
The lawmaker has put the cost of the books at over forty thousand United States Dollars. At the books turning over ceremony, scores of faculty, students, and local authorities including District Commissioner David Karchue were in attendance.
