Sen. Taylor Claims Error In Bong College Construction
By Philip T. Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, February 1 (LINA) - Bong County Senator Jewel Howard Taylor is calling for” a critical review” of the ongoing construction work on the Bong County Technical College (BCTC) in Gbarnga.

According to Senator Taylor, “there are several fundamental errors” in the construction that need to be corrected before the completion of the facility.

Senator Taylor made the call when she spoke to a team of journalists Sunday in Gbarnga following a tour of the BCTC facility.

She explained that the facility does not have a library, laboratory and several other components to enhance effective learning.

She wondered why the contractor created more than sixty offices in the building without taking into consideration these basic educational necessities.

Senator Taylor believes that the auditorium is also small and needs to be expanded to respond to the growing student population.

The Bong County Senator also expressed dismay over the slow pace of the construction work despite the full 100 percent payment to the contractor.

Contrary to a recent report by BCTC President Dr. John Flomo that the first phase of the construction will be completed by the end of February, Senator Taylor expressed doubt that the facility will be ready by March this year with the current pace of construction work.

Meanwhile, Senator Taylor has promised to file a formal complaint to President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf to swiftly intervene and rescue the situation at the Bong Technical College.

Senator Taylor’s skepticism about the completion of the first phase of construction work on the BCTC comes in the wake of an advice by the Ministry of Public Works to the administration of Bong County last month to make 100 percent payment to the contractor, Liberia China Investment Group, to the tune of US$1.7 million.
