Cabinet Tours A.M Dogliotti College of Medicine

MONROVIA, August 13 (LINA)-The Cabinet has donated assorted items to A.M. Dogliotti College of Medicine and School of Pharmacy at the University of Liberia.

The donation was made Friday barely 48 hours after Cabinet mandated appropriate interventions in the current situation at the institution.

According to an Executive Mansion release, the Cabinet, led by its Director General Jordon Sulonteh made the donation during a tour of the institution on Friday, August 12, 2016.

It can be recalled that Cabinet received updates from the President’s Delivery Unit (PDU) regarding assessment of the prevailing conditions at the Medical College.

Speaking on behalf of the delegation, Presidential Press Secretary Jerolinmek M. Piah told the students that during the last Cabinet Meeting concerns were raised about the situation at the college and that President Sirleaf pledged to address some of the issues raised at the cabinet meeting in order to bring relief to the students.

Mr. Piah informed the students that the President intends to address their plight in stages, beginning with the humanitarian intervention over the weekend. He said President Sirleaf remains committed to the educational well-being of all Liberians including the medical
students.

Speaking on behalf of the students, their leader, Dyujay G. Karnga commended the Cabinet for the visit and informed the delegation that one of the contentious issues confronting them at the institution is the stipends for 298 medical students, which, he said, has not been paid for some time now.

The students highlighted the current condition of their cafeteria, unsustainable supply of water and the rehabilitation of the dormitory, among others.  They also complained about the issue of water supply, something which, he said, is now compelling them to fetch water from the ground floors to various floors of the three-storey building.

Following their engagement, the Ministerial delegation was taken on a guided tour of the facility. At the end of the tour, some assorted food and non-food items, including several bags of mineral water, sardines, Chee-wees, and toiletries were presented amidst a pledge to make available 50 bags of rice during the course of next week.

The Ministerial delegation included Gender Minister Julia Duncan Cassell, Health Minister Dr. Bernice T. Dahn, Youth and Sports Minister Saah N’tow and PPCC Executive Director Mr. Dorbor Jallah and the proprietress of  Kumba Bendu & Sons Toiletries.
