UL Veep Chides Students Over Tires Burning
By Calvin Brooks
MONROVIA, Jan 13 (LINA) - Vice President for University Relations at the University of Liberia, Dr. S. Momolu Getaweh, has described the burning of tires in front of the state-run University by some students as “bad for the society.”
He, however, assured students that the committee set up by the Board of Trustees will soon submit its findings regarding the problem involving the University of Liberia Faculty Association, University of Liberia Student Union and Dr. Wede Brownell, for classes to resume
Speaking in an interview with the Liberia News Agency Monday, Dr. Getaweh said the demands by the faculty and the students are beyond the UL Administration and until the committee releases its findings the administration cannot act now.
He called on students to exercise restraint as the committee has assured the UL administration that everything will be done to resolve the problem as all the parties are cooperating with the committee in the investigation process.
Early Monday, a group of students burned tires in front of the University of Liberia to protest the continued closure of the university since November 18, 2013, some protesters said.
