The Monrovia Consolidated School System Teachers Association or MCSSTA describes as a bloody lie, recent reports that the Association had met with President George Manneh Weah and discussed the fate of the institution.
MCSSTA says such information circulating in the public is malicious, and has the ability to undermine the Association, and bring its leadership to public criticism. Addressing a news conference over the weekend at the Charles D.B. King Elementary School compound on Warrant Street in Monrovia, the president of the Association Mr. Veto V. Garway notes that as the result of the Presidential Press Secretary’s post on social media on February 12, 2018 that President George M. Weah met with both the National Teachers Association of Liberia, and the MCSSTA, the post has been widely discussed by employees of the MCSS, blaming the leadership of MCSSTA of failure to inform them on the outcome of the meeting held with the President, so they were troubled by the situation.
“Henceforth, the MCSSTA leadership wants to make it clear to all employees, and the public that at no time did we held any meeting with the president as mentioned by the Presidential Press Secretary, Mr. Sam Manneh in his post”, Mr. Garway clarifies.
He says the leadership of MCSSTA has written an official letter to the Office of the President, seeking n audience with him to share the plight of teachers. He maintains that the MCSS is the biggest urban government school system, which is in a better position to share with President George Weah the real issues confronting the educational sector of Liberia.
He adds that any individual or group of people that attended said meeting in the name of MCSSTA Leadership, impersonated, something he describes as diabolical, wicked and dubious in nature.
