Prexy Wants Bong College Completed
By Ballah Kollie, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, May 27 (LINA) - The president of the Bong County Technical College (BCTC), Dr. John S. Flomo, is calling for collaborative efforts among the county leadership to ensure the speedy completion of the BCTC project.

He said construction work on the BCTC, situated adjacent the Dolokelen Gboveh High School in Gbarnga, began in 2012 with over US$4 million spent on the campus that is now 65 percent completed.

He told the Liberia News Agency in an interview Monday that limited space at the rented W.V.S Tubman-Gray campus in Gbarnga will not allow him to implement the structural plan he has designed for the institution.

Dr. Flomo, who was recently appointed by President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, pledged to recommit himself to the college and to work harder to improve existing programs at each of the departments of the college.

The departments include Civil, Mining and Computer Engineering as well as Agriculture Technology and Education.


He said he will also collaborate with partners to help furnish, recruit and conduct training for lecturers.

He served as Interim Management Chairman from April 1, 2012 to March
31, 2013 and Interim president from April 1, 2013 up to his appointment as full-fledge President of the BCTC.

According to Dr. Flomo, 52 percent of the 550 students of the Bong Technical College are males.

The young Liberian educator brings on board a wealth of experience, holding a Ph.D and two master’s degrees in education. He is also currently lecturing at the University of Liberia graduate program.

The county at this year’s special development council sitting approved US$800,000 of the County and Social Development Funds for the college building project.

But Dr. Flomo said he is yet to access the money due to continuous controversy surrounding it, noting that when made available the portion of the project for which the allotment was made will be completed by the end of September this year.
