Nimba University Students Install Officers
SANNIQUELLIE, April 19 (LINA) -The A.M.E. Zion University branch of the Nimba University Students Association Friday inducted its new corps of officers.
Turning over the leadership, former leader Mezo J. Looh reported that when he ascended to power the association was indebted to the A.M.E. Zion University in the amount of US$6,400 under the group’s Financial Aid Program.
He said his administration liquidated the outstanding amount on behalf of the 47 students who could not obtain their academic reports due to the debt.
Inducting the student leaders, Nimba County Superintendent Fong Zuagele raised concern over the absence of female representation in the leadership of the student government.
He urged the students to be gender sensitive by always considering female representation in everything they do.
In his inaugural address, President Emmanuel Zorh thanked his supporters and called for maximum support for his administration to achieve its goal to lift Nimba University students to nobler heights.
Zorh encouraged his colleagues to remain steadfast in their educational pursuit despite pains and difficulties they would experience on their academic journey.
The students at a rally during the program raised over L$100,000 to aid students with high level of financial constraints.
The student president assured accountability in the process of recruitment and disbursement of funds under the financial aid scheme.
The program was attended by the local authority, Liberia Petroleum Refinery Company, principals of secondary schools and the president of the Nimba County Community College.
