By Philip T. Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent
GBARNGA, October 6 (LINA) - The President of the Bong County Technical College, Rev. Dr. John S. Flomo, has expressed satisfaction over the
level of work done on the College's facility in the Gboveh Hill Community in Gbarnga City, Bong County.
The construction of the Bong County Technical College started in 2010 but was halted for nearly two years due to lack of funds.
Construction work on the facility resumed last month following the allotment of US$ 1.8 million for the recommencement of the project by delegates at the County Development Council Sitting in Gbarnga on April 19, 2015.
Addressing a team of journalists during a tour of the project Tuesday, Dr. Flomo said though more needs to be done to get the entire facility
completed, he was happy with the level of work done so far.
The BCTC President lauded the government, the County Caucus and the entire citizenry for giving priority to the project, and expressed the hope that a significant portion of the facility will be completed in the next six months as indicated by the Ministry of Public Works.
Meanwhile, Dr. Flomo has appealed to government to provide additional funding to ensure the completion of the College.
The Bong County Technical College was accredited by the Commission on Higher Education to offer Bachelor degrees in Nursing, Education, Mining Engineering, Civil Engineering and Agriculture, among others.
The College is currently operating on the William V. S. Tubman Gray High School campus in Gbarnga, but the facility cannot accommodate the over 1,000 students expected to enroll at the college in November this
Ahead of the upcoming County Development Council Sitting, the people of Bong County have begun appealing to delegates expected to attend the sitting to allot additional funding to ensure the completion of the college.
