University Of Liberia Again

By Precious D. Freeman
Normal learning activities at the State-run University came to a standstill yesterday as the University of Liberia Faculty Association (ULFA) announced a disengagement action from all instructional activities until national government honors an MOU signed in this year.
According to our reporter, scores of ULFA members assembled on the UL main campus up Capitol Hill and unanimously voted after a motion from the body to enforce the disengagement action.
Speaking in an exclusive interview on Wednesday, the Public Relation Officer of the Faculty Association, Eric Patten, recounted that ULFA and national government on October 1, 2021, signed a memorandum of understanding in which the government promised to honor their demands.
Pattern named the lack of instructional materials, filthiness of the various campuses, huge salary disparity between instructional and support staff and reimbursements of cash for data used by teachers during the heat of the coronavirus among others.
He further expressed dissatisfaction over the filthiness of the campus, adding that instructors have been constrained to provide material for students to get their necessary services as well as quality education.
The Public Relations head also expressed disappointment in the Legislature, especially some lawmakers whom according to him, had taught or passed through the State-run University but reportedly failed to intervene in the current challenges faced by the institution.
Meanwhile, following the unanimous vote cast by the ULFA members, the association’s President, Dr. Edna Johnny pledged her leadership’s commitment to work with whatever decision made by the body.
