Monrovia – Liberia Inspector General Josephine Davies has encouraged students in the country to use education as a means of transforming Liberia.

She said quality education of every Liberian must be backed by computer skills, which she said is becoming a requirement at various work places around the world.

“You need to be persistent, determined and focused as a young person and your desire for quality education must be backed by computer of information technology skill.”

Speaking over the weekend at the launch of an information technology group, AFRIKTECH, and the opening of a computer lab at the Amos T. Warner High School in Monrovia, she said to do so, students must inspire themselves, no matter their status.
