As Liberian Students Prepare for WASSCE and WAEC Tests -NASSCORP Reaches Out to Ministry of Education

MONROVIA, LIBERIA -Ahead of the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) and the West African Examination Council ((WAEC) Tests, the National Social Security and Welfare Corporation (NASSSCORP) on Thursday, July 15, 2021 donated 25,000 graph books to the Ministry of Education (MOE).

Speaking during the donation ceremony at the Ministerial Complex in Congo Town, outside Monrovia, Mr. Nya D. Twayen, Jr., the Deputy Director-General of NASSCORP, said the donation was in continuation of NASSCORP’s support to the Ministry of Education, and was also geared towards strengthening and improving the educational sector of the country. "We are here today to donate to our students through the Ministry of Education. We have decided to donate these graph books as our students get set for their WASSCE. By this, they will not have any excuses of the graph sheets," Mr. Twayen stated.

"We are happy to be here. This is a business we started due to our interests in the educational sector. We will continue our partnership with the Ministry of Education so that some of those gaps we have in the sector can be addressed," Mr. Twayen assured. In remarks, Education Minister, Professor Ansu D. Sonii, Sr., lauded NASACORP for the donation. "We are happy to see the arrival of these books. Thank you for your support to the student population in this country. We are very grateful for this," Minister Sonii said. Minister Sonii disclosed that the ministry will use the registration rosters of schools to aid in the distribution process.

"This donation will go a long way even though we have some shortcomings. But again, this donation will go a long way. We will start the donation beginning with Nimba, Bong, Bassa, Grand Cape Mount, Bomi and Gbarpolu Counties,” he asserted. "Maryland and other coastal counties will be sent through boat. We need to also ensure that the private schools perform because without them we will not achieve anything in the educational sector, so they too, will be included in this distribution," he added. Like Minister Sonii, the Deputy Minister for Instructions at the MOE, Alexander Duopu, thanked NASACORP for the donation. "Thank you for making our students to address their deficiencies in the areas of mathematics. What you have done today is so huge," Deputy Minister Duopu stated.
