A group of Bong County citizens and students of the Bong County Technical College have threatened a sit-in action at the Capitol Building in Monrovia to compel Bong County lawmakers to complete the College.

The construction of the Bong County Technical College, which started since November 2010, was expected to last for a year, but is yet to completed since that time. The college is currently operating from the United Methodist High School facilities in Gbarnga, amid serious complaint of the lack of adequate space to host students and equipment.

The group, headed by the President of the Liberia Motor Transport Union- Bong County branch, Samuel Elliott, has threatened to ensure that the college main building is completed for access.

Mr. Elliott indicated that not less than five hundred Bong County citizens will gather at the capitol building shortly to ask Bong County lawmakers about the delays in completing the construction which began more than four years ago, describing as absolutely wrong for the leadership of the county to ignore the hardship students and school administrators face as a result of the prolonged delays.

During the last Bong County sitting about three months ago, delegates allocated US$1.8m for the continuation of the college project yet to resume.

The group wants the work to quickly resume on the building if the Lawmakers and county administration did not want any embarrassment. By Papa Morris from Gbarnga, Bong County -Edited By George Barpeen
