Mr. Lawrence Shepherd said the current rate of illiteracy in Liberia could still put Liberia at risk.
Mr. Shepherd told Star Radio if the people are not educated, people he referred to as trouble makers could manipulate them.
He spoke Sunday after he inducted into office the PTA leadership of a Small Lutheran Church School in Harrisburg, Careysburg District.
His statements were in reaction to the dejected state of the people of Harrisburg, located just a few miles outside Monrovia.
Mr. Shepherd urged the people of Harrisburg to unite and work to develop their area.
Our reporter who visited the area said people are still drinking from creeks despite being closer to the White Plains facility from where pipe born water is pumped to Monrovia.
Our reporter also said the living condition of some of the people can be likened to people living in the remotest parts of Liberia.
