The Chairman on The House Committee on Agriculture and Fisheries and Grand Gedeh County Electoral District #3 Rep. Alex Chersia Grant is encouraging Liberians to transform themselves into agriculture heroes by returning to the soil.Addressing the Amu Wulu Forum in Zwedru Grand Gedeh County recently, Rep. Grant said, “As a people, Liberians have the forest and human resources. We also have the skills, so our time and effort must be dedicated towards the growing of food. This will make Liberia self-sufficient.”Describing agriculture as a productive venture with many opportunities for everyone, Rep. Grant maintained that “Grand Gedeh in particular and Liberia as a whole deserves better and it can only be achieved through collective and dedicated cultivation of the vast forest land the nation is endowed with.”He added, “Now that the prices of our major exports on the world market have depreciated, now is the time to industrialize oil palm, cocoa, orange, banana and mango in order to support the national budget, thereby contributing to the stabilization of Liberia’s Gross Domestic Product.” He recounted successes of great world leaders who began as agriculturists, and recalled his days as a gardener, semi agriculturist, secondary school teacher and staff of the UNHCR.“Despite the fact that I’m a lawmaker, I still own a large farm in Pouh Town and I’m planning to expand it. You can do the same. We need to show the world what we have. We need to help our neighbors with food and other agricultural items. We must be agriculturally self-sufficient,” he admonished. Rep. Grant is a member of the 53rd National Legislature, and has served on a number of committees, including Refugees Repatriation and Resettlement Commission and the Committee on Agriculture and Fisheries, among others. He is also a member of Liberia’s delegation to the Pan African Parliament (PAP).Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

Virat Kohli was a pleased and relieved captain as India completed the job of picking up the final two Australian wickets and win the third Test by 137 runs in Melbourne on Sunday.The first session was washed out due to the relentless rain in Melbourne, but the weather conditions improved after the first two hours and play finally started at 7.25 am IST.India needed just 5.3 overs in the second session to bowl Australia out for 261, the second time in two days, and secure a historic victory in the Boxing Day Test at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.Kohli will retain the Border-Gavaskar trophy as India, who had cliched the trophy last year after winning the series 4-1 at home, took an unbeatable 2-1 series lead after this Test win.”We are not going to stop here. This has given us more confidence to play more positive cricket in Sydney.”We’ve done well in all three departments, which is why we’ve retained the trophy. But we want to continue. This is how we played in South Africa too, and we’re ready for the final game,” Kohli said at the post-match press conference.Kohli led from the front as he so often does. In the first innings, he battled a stiff back and scored 82 in a 170-run partnership with Cheteshwar Pujara, who hit his 17th Test hundred.Kohli has been in sensational form this year – he scored 1322 runs including five hundreds but his captaincy raised some serious questions in South Africa, England and even in Australia when he chose to go in to the Perth Test without a spinner.advertisementHowever, Kohli seemed to have learn from his mistakes in Melbourne. With plenty at stake, Kohli dropped his two regular openers and gave Mayank Agarwal a maiden Test cap. Hanuma Vihari was promoted up the order to open the innings with Agarwal.Rohit Sharma, who missed out the Perth Test due to injury came back in the side and scored his first Test fifty outside Asia since 2015. Ravindra Jadeja picked up crucial wickets while the fast bowlers continued to live up to their captain’s high expectations.”Our first-class cricket is amazing, which is why we won. Credit must go to first-class set-up in India, which challenges our fast bowlers in India, and that helps them abroad. Agarwal showed great character on Boxing Day. And Pujara has always been composed, so we just wanted a big partnership. And the fact that Vihari batted so long in the first innings, it allowed us to bat more confidently. And Rohit’s 60-odd as well,” the Indian captain said.Kohli’s decision to not enforce the follow-on after taking a 292-run first innings lead also raised a few eyebrows. Allan Border said he was surprised with India’s move. Many felt the rain which had been forecast for the weekend could rob India of a memorable win.”It’s a good thing I don’t read any comments or opinions (on not enforcing the follow on). I wanted us to bat more, and add some more runs, because batting would be difficult on day four and five.”We knew that it would be tough for Australia, but credit to our bowlers, especially Jasprit (Bumrah). The three fast bowlers have broken the record for most wickets by pacers in a calendar year for a team, which is brilliant. I certainly feel proud as a captain when they bowl in partnerships. No one is looking to out-bowl each other,” Kohli added.Kohli had the last laugh as India wrapped up a historic victory. He will now be eager to go over to Sydney and win the first ever Test series for India in Australia.
