Yambio, 16th May 2017. Take learning as a responsibility not an opportunity, says Maridi State Minister of Education.
Jane Pia Michael says schooling is a right of everyone to be educated without discrimination, Radio Anisa reports.
If all people are well educated, leaders will be able to guide people and they will live in good faith with everyone, she adds.
Minister Pia cites challenges facing the ministry including lack of resources, insecurity and learning facilities for the displaced persons.
She urges people in Western Equatoria to have very good working relationships despite the creation of more states in the region and South Sudan at large.
The speaker was talking to Radio Anisa in Maridi State.
