FLY Prez. Aspirant Wants Gov’t Address ‘Crazy People’ Problem

first_imgA presidential aspirant for the leadership Federation of Liberia Youth, (FLY) Mr. Maxwell Grigsby, has called on this government to remove ‘crazy people’ from the streets and along the countryside.Mr. Grigsby said that a situation of un-well people walking aimlessly around Monrovia was embarrassing for the general public—especially children—and wondered why no institution has seized the opportunity to do something about correcting such an ugly situation.These ‘challenged’ individuals are Liberians and should be able to command some degree of consideration and care from the institutions responsible to provide such—the aspirant decided to let it be known—tacitly (without saying it) placing the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare ‘on the spot.’ ”    Speaking tlast week, at the official launch of a student-based organization: the Innovative Yellow House of the Muslim Congress, Mr. Grigsby noted that the Ministry of Health appears askance (doubtful) about whether or not it can deal with the depressing situation.   “The Ministry of Health and Social Welfare must or should have a budget for taking off the streets—as some nations around the world do—people who might not be responsible for their actions,” Mr. Grigsby continued.“Sometimes these individuals are seen strutting the streets without clothes on; our children are on their way from school and find themselves, unexpectedly, glaring at such obscene and unwholesome spectacles that could be traumatizing(causing emotional shock or distress) for them—and even some senior citizens,” the speaker declared.He used the occasion to encourage students to regard (see) themselves as a new generation of Liberians. “You must keep readying and studying hard; that will enable you to tackle some of the issues related to education, for the betterment of the country,” he reassured.“You need to have a role model and work extremely hard to ensure that your dream is realized; nothing comes easily in life without something or someone to emulate or look up to,” he pointed out.Mr. Grigsby called on students around the country to remain focused and do all within their power for success, as they march towards the future.(With an assist from Keith Neville A.
