VICE President of Liberia, Dr. Jewel Howard-Taylor, has said that Africans have been brainwashed to believe that God is a magician who could provide everything for them without working hard.
Dr. Howard-Taylor said it was a serious psychological problem for Africans to have lost knowledge of who they were.
The Liberia Vice President who spoke while delivering the convocation lecture of the Elizade University, Ilara Mokin in Ondo State, wondered how those who spent all day in the church expect to feed their children.
In her lecture titled: “Africa Renaissance: Key for New Global Leadership Paradigm,” Dr. Howard-Taylor said Africans must continue to be gatekeepers to nations in the continent.
Howard-Taylor advised African parents to be consistent in changing the mindset of young people by teaching them morals and values embedded in African traditions.
