The African Methodist Episcopal University (AMEU) on Wednesday graduated the total of 234 students from the university in different disciplines.

The 234 graduates represent different departments of the university including: Bryant Theological Seminary, College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences and college of business and public administration among others.

Delivering the commencement address, former Montserrado County electoral district one Representative, Josephine George Francis urged the 2018 graduates of the African Methodist Episcopal University (AMEU) to pursue farming as they walk out of the walls of the university.

She stressed the need for graduates to consider farming and corporative and not depend on government for everything.

Madam Francis who did not provide detail for her called to graduates, believes when this is done, those graduates would be independent in their contribution to nation building as well as reduce.

Francis call comes at a time where less attention is given to the agriculture sector or farming activities in Liberia as the nation persistently depend on other countries for food and other material supplies.

Many persons believed agriculture play key role as such growth and development of Liberia would depend on the number of investments made in agriculture.

In his congratulatory message, AME University President, Joseph Isaac said the day is a moment for the graduates to reflect on the distances traveled; the years spent, the qualities and strengths they have developed as well as the people that helped them grow.

He cautioned graduates to look for new opportunities, and not to box themselves in a corner.

“Let the sky be your limit! If you cannot find a good paying job in your field, continue to upgrade your skills; and always reinvent yourself,” Isaac further tell graduate.
