MONROVIA, LIBERIA - The Orator of this year’s National Flag Day, Representative, Johnson Gwaikolo, has called for reintroduction of teaching of civic education in Liberian schools.

”The current lawlessness and hate in the Liberian politics is also attributed to the lack of civic education among Liberians”, said the Orator.

Representative Gwaikolo noted the inclusion of the Constitution into the National Curriculum will help Liberian students and the citizenry understand their civic duties to their Country.

He said patriotism can be developed and strengthened once the citizenry understand their civic duties and responsibilities.

On October 25, 1915 an Act approved by the National Legislature of the Republic of Liberia, declared August 24, of each year as “National Flag Day” to be observed as a National Holiday throughout the country.

As Liberians of all walks of lives celebrate the 172nd National Flag Day and reaffirms their allegiance and loyalty to the National Ensign, the colorful occasion was also marked by parades of selected schools and security personnel and presentation of awards to best performing schools.
