Montserrado County’s District#8 Representative hopeful Isaac Krah has urged members of the G. W. Gibson School Alumni Association to foster unity in diversity to strengthen the association.
Mr. Krah stressed that diversity brings together the best of people from different backgrounds in society.
He spoke recently at the homecoming of the G. W. Gibson School Alumni Association held in Monrovia.
According to him, people from different backgrounds can meet for the first time and trust and understanding can be developed which is crucial for social coherence.
He noted that lack of unity is undermining the growth and development of several associations across the country.
Mr. Krah emphasized that co-existence in a peaceful manner will go a long way in building institutions and groups of individuals in every endeavor of life, be it social or political sojourn.
“During the Liberian Civil War from the 90s to 2000, I settled in Ghana and later moved to Nigeria for schooling, and I was able to be integrated to living conditions in the two countries as well as both Liberian camps.” He reflected.
Krah urged members of the Alumni Association to work together to empower the association so that it can contribute meaningfully to the school and society in general.
He re-iterated that diversity is the differences in racial and ethnic, socioeconomic, geographic and academic or professional background, such that people with different opinions on issues should be tolerated in any society.
He further stressed that Liberians should continue to maintain peace and create a harmonious society in order to transform the socio-economic development of the country. Editing by Jonathan Browne
