President George Weah conferred honorary Doctorate degree



Cuttington University College in Suakoko, Bong County, Liberia, Friday conferred a honorary Doctorate Degree on President George Manneh Weah for his good work since assuming the presidency of Liberia. Delivering the commencement speech on the university’s main campus, President Weah told graduates that patience and perseverance are essential to overcoming the challenges of life and achieving success in any endeavor.
President Weah said people fail in life not because they are not good or up to the task, but because they lack the patience to continue.
Alluding to his past experiences, the Liberian leader said in his keynote address at the 57th Commencement on Friday that he became a better person by making his past experiences his lesson.
 He gave a vivid description of what ought to be a clear-cut solution to achieving success as well as overcoming life’s challenges.
  "Dream big, work hard, learn from their failures and persevere so as to be successful in life," he added.
Describing the graduates as leaders and decision-makers of Liberia, Weah emphasized that “he does not take speaking to Liberian future leaders lightly.”
He indicated that life will produce challenges and obstacles along the way, but noted that consistency in pursuing goals remains cardinal to overcoming these challenges, adding, “you cannot expect to get extraordinary results from ordinary efforts.”
