Abudget officer at the Central Bank of Liberia (CBL) Julius Kerkula, has urged the leadership of the Margibi University Students Union or MARUSU, not to become a kangaroo leadership.
Speaking to reporters in Kakata, Margibi County recently during the induction of officers-elect of MARUSU, Kerkula told the new leadership not to be sub-servient to county authorities by reducing themselves to opening doors for superintendents and representatives.
He said instead, MARUSU should stand in the vanguard in advocating for less fortunate students, who are faced with financial constraints. According to him, the sole purpose of the union, which is an umbrella organization of university students in Margibi County, is to ensure unity among the people.
He noted that the institution now appears to being downplayed by even authorities of Margibi. The CBL budget officer attributed constraints being faced by MARUSU to what he described as ‘don’t care attitudes’ of Margibi authorities. He challenged the county’s leadership to support MARUSU financially to have more students from the county acquire tertiary and university education.
