MONROVIA, LIBERIA-The Assistant Minister for Science and Technology Education has emphasized the need to integrate Science and Technology in all Liberian schools.

Minister Sekou Dukuly said the initiative will prepare the new generation for the twenty first century challenges.

Mr. Dukuly said:” If Liberia must be a middle-income country by 2030, it is incumbent upon all citizens to join efforts geared at strengthening the Science and Technology component of the National Curriculum and to fund science and technological innovation Program in Liberian schools.”

He also called for the political will to take appropriate steps by enacting law, policies and mechanisms for the promotion of such innovative development.

Assistant Minister Dukuly made the statements Tuesday, September 26, 2018, at the opening of a three-day Training Workshop on methods and frameworks for evaluating the National Innovation Systems of Liberia held at a local hotel in Monrovia.

Also speaking at the workshop’s opening ceremony, the Executive Secretary of the African Union Commission, Dr. Philippe Mawoko, said Liberia has become the third country, after Senegal and Mali, to run the African Observatory Innovation Program for the ECOWAS Region.

Dr. Mawoko said the National Innovation System is a priority program adopted in 2012 by the African Union’s Member States.
