The Secretary General of the League of Scholars, Imam Mohammed Konneh, has called on members of the University of Liberia Muslim Students Association (ULMSA), who are part of the 98th graduating class, to diversify their education.
Imam Konneh told the outgoing ULMSA members that they should not depend on the discipline they will be receiving degree in, but should focus on other areas as a means of expanding their intellectual capacities.
He told them that they have the intellectual responsibility to the society as members of the academic veteran community.
The Islamic scholar also called on the graduates to be proactive and innovative in creating their own employment and become managers for their own innovation and creativity.
Imam Konneh made the statement over the weekend at souvenir program commemorating the 18th baccalaureate service for ULMSA’s prospective veterans of the University of Liberia.
He said the success of a nation depends of on the education of serious minded people in society, adding, their degrees are symbol of their education; as such, they must use it to make their way in the larger world.
For his part, ULMSA Vice President for International Affairs, Abu Sheriff, said the program is part of ULMSA’s own way of appreciating students who have gone through the rudiments of achieving higher education.
Sheriff said ULMSA is not only a campus based organization that coordinates Islamic activities with the students and administration, but breaches the gap between Islamic students in Liberia with international Islamic scholars.
He disclosed that the League of Scholars, an international Islamic organization, is currently sponsoring Islamic students from the University of Liberia.
