President George Manneh Weah has mandated the Ministers of Justice and Education along with Bishop Jonathan B. B. Hart, Chairman and members of the Board of Trustees of Cuttington University to proceed on Wednesday May 30, 2018 to the campus of the University in Suakoko, Bong County to resolve the impasse that is impeding normal studies at the Episcopal Church-run University.
The Liberian Leader’s mandate is as a result of a “go-slow” action by the Faculty Association of Cuttington University, which took place on May 14, 2018 and was suspended on May 17, 2018 due to intervention from the Board of Trustees. The Faculty Association has been requesting that the President of the University, Dr. Herman Browne resign following complaints of alleged poor management of the University.
President Weah is concerned that the Faculty Association has resolved to resume their protest action while students at the University are currently unable to pursue their studies.Meanwhile, the President wants all parties involved to work with the delegation to amicably resolve the impasse in order for classes to resume.-Press release
