Don't Panic Over School Closure Statement’ - Rep. Dunah

By Wellington G Patrick, LINA Nimba County Correspondent

SANNIQUELLIE, June 19 (LINA) - Nimba Representative Worleay Saywah Dunah has assured students and parents of the county that schools will not close June 30 as has been announced by authorities of the Ministry of Education.

Dunah described the pronouncement made by newly-confirmed Education Minister George Werner as an oversight and a wrong method of testing state policy, adding, “This cannot be supported.”

He noted that the Education Ministry cannot close school, declare academic activities as a mere study class and cancel promotion of students in the manner suggested by the minister’s statement.

“We adjusted the election law of Liberia at the height of the Ebola disaster to avoid constitutional crisis; we are equally capable of adjusting statutory rules affecting education processes in the country if the need arises”, Dunah told the Liberia News Agency in an interview via mobile phone.

He admonished students and parents in Nimba and across the country not to panic over the school closure statement, because the Legislature will not support such decision on the part of the Education Ministry.

He disclosed that the Plenary of the House of Representatives on Tuesday mandated its Chief Clerk to cite Minister Werner to appear next Tuesday to provide clarification as to why government should close school June 30.
