The ground breaking ceremony held at the UL Park was graced by UL President Dr. Emmett A. Dennis and officials, Lonestar Cell MTN Mobile Money Manager Samelia Tweh, UL Student representative Anthony Williams, among others. At the program, Miss UL Roberthalyne Kollie expressed delight for the project, describing the ground breaking ceremony as a dream come true.
Miss Kollie thanked Lonestar Cell MTN for standing by her for the project, adding, her projects are not just about the crown or the title, but it’s about leaving a legacy that other students will follow.
Lonestar Cell MTN Mobile Money Manager Samelia Tweh said it was an honor to have senior staffs including Dr. Dennis at the program, emphasizing that Lonestar’s partnership with the UL goes a long way. Madam Tweh added that there are several projects undertaken with the UL in the partnership between the university and the mobile company.
She further noted that the project on hand was not new and instead indicated that it was like the renovation of what Lonestar Cell did in the past. What is new according to Tweh was that the Miss UL was now taking it up as her own project to ensure that both Lonestar and UL continue the partnership.
She told a gathering at the UL Park that Lonestar will bring to the students of the University, the company’s services so that they don’t have to leave campus to go looking for service centers.
“…But they can be served, “she said, adding that it would afford the students ample time to study rather than making long queue at service centers which could weaken their strength academically.
“They can have phones, scratch cards and simcards available to them here. Mobile Money Service will be available to them here where they can register, deposit money and they can withdraw here- maybe their parents have transfer money to them. So this will just be a center for all services that we will be bringing to your door,” she concluded.
UL President Dr. Emmett A. Dennis, for his part said the university has always had the unflinching support of Lonestar Cell MTN, saying “at least since I have been here, they have supported our Miss UL effort in addition to providing scholarship opportunities for our students.”
University of Liberia Student Union or ULSU representative Anthony Williams thanked Lonestar Cell MTN, saying “we are here to grace this occasion to see how best the students can benefit from Lonestar.”
But he asked the mobile company to extend its support to academic activities on campus, as ULSU scholarships were directed to the human resource development of Liberia.
