I read with keen interest the editorial published in the Monday, January 13, 2014 edition of the Daily Observer captioned: “Put the National Culture Center Where It Belongs: in Bomi’s Dowein District” which alludes to the establishment of the National Cultural Center in Bomi instead of in Marshall.
Noteworthily, Bomi is the home of the Liberia Cultural icon; (late) Bai T. Moore, and a myriad of cultural activities; nevertheless, it is prudent that the Cultural Center be established in an area such as Marshall where cultural activities are inactive for the purpose of decentralization.
Our cultural activities should be presented throughout the length and breath of Liberia so as to expeditiously revive Liberia’s rich and diverse culture.
Furthermore, the proposal asserted in your editorial for the establishment of the National Cultural Center in Bomi could ignite a lengthy and heated debate that could navigate the attention of the Sirleaf administration and the Liberia people from the urgent need to revive the National Cultural Center.
Our attention should rather be concentrated on the establishment of the National Cultural Center in Marshall that will be so culturally intriguing to baffle the minds of those who will visit it.
