We have observed and followed that within the 100-day period, the government through the Ministry of Education have settled the outstanding scholarship arrears for local and foreign students, something that reduced fear and financial burdens from parents including 50% payment of US$3 million debt owed WAEC Liberia and another US$3 million budgeted by the Ministry of Education in FY2024 budget as well as the continuation of the free education policy in all public schools and universities,” he said.  According to him, the President also introduced new learning programs intended to build the capacity of young people in ICT, and they were fortunate to have witnessed the launched of the Liberia Digital Transformation Project recently at the E.J.S.
