The President of Cuttington University has urged the people of Bong County to establish a college to afford additional educational opportunities. Dr. Henrique Flomo Tokpa told our reporter last weekend that as an educator, he was of the belief that the college would absorb Bongese who are anxious to seek higher education.
Dr. Tokpa described the Bong County Technical College as an excellent idea, and would also afford those teaching at Cuttington and other colleges a chance to have another source of income like those in Monrovia.
He pledged to lend his many years of university administration experience to the BCTC in fostering its goal of quality education. Meanwhile, the award-winning CU President has said that despite its challenges, Cuttington University was proud to be the first higher institution of learning.
He named one of the many challenges facing the university as the delay by scholarship donors to pay fees owed the school-something that was causing some financial hardship to Cuttington.
However, he said the school was resolved with its excellence in education. The CU President, whose third contract at CU ends in 2017, then lauded the high-working faculty at the University for being steadfast in educating the younger generation.
