By Joshua Adeoti

In an effort to introduce a wind of change to the educational standard of his country, Liberian president, George Weah, has appealed to the Nigerian government to provide 6000 teachers to his country as part of the Technical Assistance agreement between the two old allies.
Speaking this afternoon after a closed-door meeting with President Buhari at the State House Presidential Villa in Abuja, George Weah said his government inherited a great deal of problems that can easily be remedied with assistance from countries like Nigeria.
Goerge Weah said: “Your sustained technical assistance for capacity building in these sectors is most welcome. For example, Nigerian teachers and medical volunteers to Liberia, under the Technical Assistance Corps TAC) Agreement with Liberia, have been very crucial in boosting capacity development in Liberia, and it is my hope that this assistance can be considerably increased to address with urgency our most pressing socio-economic needs at this time.
“More specifically, under the Bilateral Teacher Exchange programme, we are seeking 6,000 plus teachers to make up for the shortage of good teachers in our educational system,” he concluded.
