By Grace Bryant
The House of Representatives (HOR) has cited the Chairperson of the Board of Commissioners of the Liberia Telecommunication Authority (LTA), Madam Edwina Crump Zackpah, to explain how effectively 10,000 young people will be trained in various digital skills.
The House’s decision followed a communication from Maryland County District 1 Representative, P. Mike Jury, on Thursday, February 1, 2024, requesting the LTA Chairperson to elucidate on how effectively 10,000 young people will be trained in various digital skills.
According to Rep. Jury, the President said in his State of the Nation Address (SONA), “In our quest to expand the economy, we will leverage Information Communication Technology (ICT) in creating jobs, especially for our youth. To achieve this, my administration will train up to 10,000 young people in various digital skills in the first half of 2024.”
“Honorable Deputy Speaker, fellow colleagues, today is the first day of February 2024, which is the beginning of the second month of the first half of the year. In this regard, to achieve the laudable policy established by the President of the Republic of Liberia, time is of the essence! It is important that LTA gives the people’s deputies a clear strategy and how inclusive it will be to cover the nation,” he said.
He emphasized, “Considering the above, I crave the indulgence of Plenary to invite the LTA Chairperson to come and present a comprehensive rollout plan that will achieve the goal to train 10,000 young people in the first half of 2024.”
