GBARNGA, September 8 (LINA) – The Board of Trustees of Cuttington University (CU) has appointed an interim management team to take over from current president Dr. Henrique Tokpa at the end of September this year.

Under the arrangement, Dr. Fredrick Gbegbe will served as President of the University for the month of October while Dr. Evelyn Kandakai takes over from November to June 6, 2016.
Introducing the two officials on the main campus of the University in Suakoko Tuesday, the Chairman of the Board of Trustees Bishop Jonathan B.B. Hart said the interim team will remain in charge until the search committee completes its work for a new President of the University.
Bishop Hart praised Dr. Tokpa for diligently severing Cuttington and the people of Liberia and admonished him to continue his support to Cuttington despite his resignation.
For his part, the outgoing President Tokpa lauded the board and staff of Cuttington for their tremendous effort in making the university one of the institutions in the country that is providing quality education.
In response, incoming CU Presidents Doctors Kandakai and Gbegbe pledged their fullest commitment to further advancing the University and thanked the board for their preferment.
Dr. Evelyn Kandakai and Dr. Fredrick Gbegbe are former vice Presidents of Cuttington University; Dr. Kandakai is a 1970 graduate of Cuttington and later served as lecturer and Vice President in 1978 and 1981 respectively.
