The Grand Gedeh University Student Union (GGUSU) has strongly condemned a statement attributed to some students under the banner of Geology and Mining Students at the University of Liberia toward some county officials, especially the Superintendent and members of the Education Management Committee.
According to a statement signed and released by the Union’s Acting President. Randall Y .Dweh last week, it said that students T. Kudah Jairus and Watson Chelley released a statement accusing the County Superintendent and the Education Management Committee of squandering fifty-five thousand United States dollars (US$55,000.00) meant for students’ scholarship.
The statement stated further that the students referred to the county officials as corrupt individuals in the absence of a comprehensive financial report or a guilty verdict of any financial malpractices against the officials.
Mr. Dweh through the statement called on the Education Management Committee not to be detracted by those comments made by their colleagues, but should instead focus on their job by upholding those major good characteristics of management.
“Henceforth, the Union is also calling on its local chapter at the University of Liberia to conduct an investigation and take appropriate action so as to bring an end to the de-facto leadership dispute that continues to fragment the student communities,” the statement said.
Meanwhile, the students union is warning those veterans who are behind the recent gross disrespect of constituted authority to desist and redirect their energy toward some meaningful cause that will bring unity and development to the county.
The statement stated further that ‘GGUSU is with the strongest conviction that the rehabilitation and rebuilding process of our war affected county in its compounded complexities, the issues of unity, and respect for constituted authorities must not be undermined’.
The statement concluded by calling on all Grand Gedeans to embark on developmental and reconciliatory issues and called on them to refrain from acts that will always bring the county into public disrepute.
Efforts to contact Student T. Kudah Jairus to clarify the allegations proved futile as his phone rang endlessly.
