By Philip T. Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent
GBARNGA, April 1, (LINA) - The newly-constituted Interim Management Team of the Bong County Technical College (BCTC) has began a series of meetings with different sections of the administration and campus-based organizations.
The meetings are part of the implementation of the committee’s scope of reference and awareness creation.
The team headed by Dr. Roland Massaquoi was set up early this week by the Board of Trustees of the College as part of efforts to coordinate with the administration and staff.
The board is to submit a comprehensive report of the state of affairs covering academic affairs and administration with specific emphasis on ensuring progress on the ongoing construction of the BCTC facilities within 60 days to the office of President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.
On Thursday, the interim team met with key members of the administration, sectional heads and other staffs as well as faculty members to explain its oversight role, terms of reference and explain their expectations in the coming days.
On Friday, the team continued to meet with the leadership of campus-based organizations, human resource, finance, and procurement and student affairs departments to continue consultations.
During the meeting, the students expressed concern over the manner in which BCTC President, Dr. John Flomo, was suspended and hoped that the team will build upon what was already in place to promote student activities on campus.
The committee was also represented by Madam Viola Cooper, who has been designated to reach out and explain the workings of the committee.
On Saturday, April 2, the committee will meet with the contractor and other relevant persons to review the status of the ongoing construction work and the timeline for making progress.
Plans are also underway to organize a meeting on Saturday, April 9, with stakeholders, including the county leadership, Legislative Caucus and others to discuss the way forward for the improvement of the College at its facility under construction in the Gboveh Hill community.
