Dr. Peters Dismissed from St. Clément's University

By Richard Stephens

MONROVIA, Feb 23 (LINA)-Authorities of the St. Clement’s University College in the northern Monrovia, in the suburbs of Paynesville, have announced the dismissal of Professor Dr. Niden Peters.

A consultant at the College, Dr. Thomas G. Koon, said the continuous presence of Dr. Peters at the institution had become an embarrassment and a problem for the school.

Dr. Peters has meanwhile disclosed that the school has reopened and that student enrollment was in progress.

According to the Liberia News Agency, Dr. Koon made the disclosure Saturday at a press conference held at his office in Paynesville.

 Dr. Peters, a Cameroonian, was appointed vice president to head the institution in Liberia by the college’s overseas president and Board of Trustees, but that the National Commission on Higher had questioned his credentials.

Recently, the Commission ordered the closure of the college demanding that the institution dismiss the services of Dr. Peters.

The Commission accused Dr. Peters of misleading the Liberian public that he holds a Ph.D. degree, copy of which he has allegedly failed to submit to the Commission, despite several requests.

The National Commission on Higher Education is the government arm responsible to monitor and regulate the establishment of tertiary education institutions, as well as verify the credentials of individuals heading those institutions.

Meanwhile, the institution has declared the vice president position vacant, and is soliciting applications from qualified individuals who must be holders of the doctorate degree acceptable to the Commission on Higher Education in Liberia.

 In a related development, the College has announced that out of the 96 students who recently sat its entrance and placement exams for 2014, 76 students passed both math and English, while 12 students are to do remedial in English and 8 students are required to do remedial in math.
