The administration of the Bong Technical College has received another commendation for its efforts toward the opening the college. Civil society actor George Johnson told this paper that the decision of the administration to open the college at the William V.S. Tubman-Gray High school was very welcoming, as hundreds of young people in the county were anxious to acquire some level of education.
He termed the turnout of candidates for the recent entrance exams at the BCTC as encouraging, and called on every well-meaning citizens of the county to support the opening of the Bong Technical College.
Meanwhile, the Regional Civil Society Coordinator for Bong, Lofa and Nimba Counties has blamed the Ministry of Commerce for what he calls the importation of expired and substandard foods into the country by unscrupulous foreign business people.
He alleged that most of the sicknesses encountered by Liberians were the result of expired food products imported into Liberia, as well as the inability of the Commerce Ministry to adequately regulate goods and services.
The civil society actor emphasized the urgent need for the Government of Liberia to drastically enforce measures to carefully check goods, especially food imported into Liberia.
