Jersey explained that the student movement seeks to advocate for better learning conditions for students in the country and train young people in leadership capability.
The LINSU official made the remarks Saturday when the Montserrado County Student Union (MONSU) went to the polls to elect a new corps of officials for the next two years.
He observed that since 2006, school fees in several private schools go up each academic year, while the Liberian Government is yet to put in place measures to address the uncontrolled hikes in school fees in the country.
He noted that even though students are referred to as future leaders, it would be difficult for them to play this role if they are not provided the requisite learning environment and quality education.
The LINU president emphasized that the development of Liberia depends of the student populace and called on government to invest in the education sector to develop the country’s human resource.
