By Philip T. Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent
GBARNGA, April 3 (LINA) -–A tripartite meeting to discuss the way forward to improve the Bong County Technical College (BCTC) facility under construction in the Gboveh Hill Community in Gbarnga will convene Saturday, April 9.
According to the Liberia News Agency correspondent in Bong County, stakeholders to attend the meeting are the newly-constituted interim management team of BCTC, County Legislative Caucus and local county authority, among others.
The LINA correspondent reports that the Board of Trustees is to summit a comprehensive report of the state of affairs to cover academics and administration with specific emphasis on ensuring progress on the ongoing construction of the BCTC facilities.
The interim management team Thursday began a series of meetings with different sections of the administration and campus-based organizations as part of the implementation of its scope of operation and awareness creation.
The team, headed by Dr. Roland Massaquoi, a member of the Board of Trustees, was set up early last week by the Board as part of efforts to coordinate with the administration and staff of the College.
On Thursday, the interim team met with key members of the administration, sectional heads and other staff as well as faculty members to explain its oversight role, terms of reference and expectations in the coming days.
On Friday, the team met 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 team was also represented by Viola Cooper, a member of the Board and President of the Marketing Association in Bong County, who was designated to reach out and explain the workings of the committee.
The team met with the contractor and other relevant persons on Saturday, April 2, and reviewed the status of the ongoing construction work and the timeline for making progress.
