Concerned Bong Citizens Want College Completed

The Chairman of the Bong County Technical College, Parents Association and the President of the Bong County Motorcycle Union Mr. Sam Elliot are calling on Central Government to help in the completion of the Bong County Technical College Complex.

Speaking on campus of the College recently, Mr. Elliot said, since the establishment of the college in an Act by the National Legislature in 2012, the college has been operating on the campus of the United Methodist School in Gbarnga because since the construction began in 2012, it has not been completed.

Mr. Elliott, who outlined some of the complaints from the public against the College, said that some politicians use the college to gain their political goals without paying attention to the completion of the college.

He said the college received at least 800 hundred students in a semester, something he said that the campus cannot accumulate said amount of students.

According to him, the school administration is complaining of shortage of chairs and some embarrassment the college is causing for the institution which he named as damaging of arm chairs and causing students to search for chairs during school hours.

It can be recalled that early this year, the Bong County concerned citizens organized at fund raising for the completion of the Technical College. During the program, at least 1.5 M Liberians Dollars was raised with many pledging some in   building materials.

He said in the recent County Sitting, the County Legislative caucus allotted 1.8m USD for the completion of the college.

Meanwhile, Mr. Elliot has promised to lead a team of students this week to the House’s Plenary if their plight is not addressed by the National Government.

Bong County Technical County College is the only college in Liberia that is offering BSC and receives at least 1000 students in the Central region of Liberia with courses at the lower cost of 6 dollars per credit.
