Grand Gedeh Community College denies indebtedness
By Jonathan Browne
The administration of the Grand Gedeh Community College in Zwedru, Grand Gedeh county denies being indebted to the Greene family for rental, contrary to claim by the family.
The President of the college Dr. Solomon X.Y. Jallayu, says the institute had entered into no rental or lease agreement with the Greene family or anybody for its operation.
Speaking to the New Dawn Tuesday, February 8, 2022, via mobile phone from Grand Gedeh, he said the community college moved on its own premises since March 2016 and had never operated from a rented property.
Dr. Jallayu explains that prior to acquiring its own campus, the Grand Gedeh Community College had operated from the campus of the Zwedru Multilateral High School in Zwedru City rather than on private property.
A member of the Greene family, Pastor Albert Greene narrated to this paper that the Grand Gedeh Community College entered an agreement with his elder brother in Zwedru Cllr. Philip Greene in 2018, to rent the property for a monthly fee of US$100.
Pastor Greene explained that since 2018, the college had only paid for a year, and rental for 2019, 2020 and 2021 are still outstanding.
But Dr, Jallayu challenges members of the Greene family to produce any legal or lease agreement between the college and the family to prove that the administration rented a compound from them.
He also denies that the college was ever taken to court for non-payment of rental, contrary to claim by the Greene family.
He discloses that the college is preparing for its 5th graduation exercise this February and clarifies that the institution is headed by him, a Liberia, and not a Nigerian national as the family claims.
