Funding Shortfall Hurts Gbarpolu University Students
By Emmanuel Mondaye, LINA Gbarpolu County Correspondent

BOPOLU CITY, April 23 (LINA) - The President of the Gbarpolu University Students Union (GUSU), Joshua Dogba-Yassah, has said financial constraint is posing a challenge to students from Gbarplu County pursuing education at various universities in the country.

He said due to this constraint, the scholarship program embarked upon by GUSU has come to a standstill, and that students are disenchanted about the stalemate.

Dogba-Yassah made the statement when he officially presented the GUSU activity report to Gbarpolu County Superintendent Allen Gbowee, in Bopolu City last Monday.

He disclosed that scores of students from the county are facing difficulty continuing their education at the various universities due to the lack of funds to pay tuition.

Mr. Dogba-Yassah said GUSU in January 2014 introduced a monthly intellectual discourse in the county to discuss development issues with citizens and chart the course on how to contribute to the development programs of government.

Receiving the GUSU report, Superintendent Gbowee thanked the union for involving the county leadership in its programs, and assured GUSU of his administration’s preparedness to support the group to enhance the learning process of Gbarpolu students at universities in the country.

Superintendent Gbowee also observed that GUSU has started its activities on “a good footing,” indicating that the union is committed to seeking the welfare of students and playing a positive role in the development of the county.
