Special Committee Says Fendell July 10 Deadline Final
By Ballah M. Kollie, LINA

MONROVIA, July 2 (LINA) – The Special Presidential Committee on the University of Liberia (UL) Fendell land has stressed the need for individuals claiming portions of the land to meet the July 10, 2015 deadline to submit their deeds to the Land Commission.

The University of Liberia has a total of 5,800 acres of land in Fendell, extending to Bensonville, but most of the land has over time been occupied by illegal occupants, while others are claiming ownership of portions of the land.

The Presidential Committee noted that since its five years of existence, claimants of the UL Fendell land have not been able to establish or adduce documents to legitimize their claims.

Addressing the Ministry of Information press conference on behalf of the Committee Thursday, UL Vice President for Administration Weade Kobbah Wureh vowed that the Committee will no longer extend the July 10 deadline, having done so twice.

Also speaking on behalf of the Committee, Assistant Justice Minister for Taxation Aaron Kparkillen warned that the fate of those failing to meet the July 10 deadline will be decided by the Committee.

The Special Presidential Committee is chaired by the office of President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, and includes the University of Liberia, Ministries of Justice, Public Works, Lands, Mines and Energy and the Land Commission.

It was constituted five years ago to identify and work with persons claiming or encroaching on the University of Liberia property with the aim of retrieving and repossessing it.

The land was acquired by the government of Liberia during the regime of President William V.S. Tubman in 1962 in recognition of the limited space to accommodate the growing population of students on the main campus of the University of Liberia on Capitol Hill.

Currently, the University of Liberia has over 36,000 students in all colleges and is striving to expand its facilities to absorb additional students with improved learning environment.
