Students from Sinoe County attending the Lincoln College in Monrovia have applauded the speaker of the Mano River Youth Parliament, Melvin Sarh, for his recent contribution to various schools in Sinoe County.
They said the gesture by Melvin Sarh is a clear indication that people still have love for the county.
Speaking recently, the president for the Sinoe students at the Lincoln College, Mark Chea, praised Melvin Sarh for contributing to the growth and development of the county.
He said Melvin Sarh presented assorted materials to various schools in Sinoe, including textbooks, zinc, dozens of pencils, among other things.
He said schools that benefited from the gesture include the Sinoe Multilateral High School, the United Methodist School, and St. Joseph’s Catholic School, among others including the renovation of those schools.
Mr. Chea indicated that some people claim to be citizens of Sinoe, but they failed to identify with students, who are in need of help in the county.
He stressed that the growth of any county depends on collaborative efforts with leaders of the county, but “Many of our leaders are not willing to render assistance to young people, who have the passion to become great person in the society”.
Melvin Sarh, who is the present speaker of the Mano River Youth Parliament, and also as student attending the Louise Arthur Grimes School of Law on Capitol Hill last week reached out to over 10 major schools in Sinoe county. He has also created a platform where various students from every district of the county can discuss issues relating to the county.
Sarh told the Sinoe students that it is time for citizens of Sinoe County to think and make good decision at the poll, saying, “We as citizens of this county, it is our turn to empower people, who will care for us and not to elect people based on sentiments, because such has destroyed this county”.
“We cannot afford to put the future of our county at stake with the election of people who will enrich their families and themselves.”
The students however explained that Melvin Sarh is concerned about the difficulty Liberians are faced with in their respective communities, saying, “At this time, we as student leaders cannot sit and abandon everything on the shoulders of the government.”
“This donation is to help schools in the various communities to give students the rightful lessons they deserved”, he added. By Lewis S. Teh – Edited by Jonathan Browne
