GBARNGA, Bong County: Some aggrieved students of Bong County Technical College (BCTC) in Gbarnga are demanding the immediate resignation and or removal of Dr. Roland C.Y Massauoi as President of the college.

The aggrieved students, during a protest on Monday, February 19, 2024, held postcards and marched from the main campus of the college to the Gbarnga Administration Building highlighting several concerns to which their call is attributed.

Among other things, the aggrieved BCTC students named the alleged closure of the E-portal, Students Online Registration Platform, the Disconnection of electricity from the campus, and the poor attendance of lecturers to classes as key factors that triggered their protest actions.

According to them, the above-mentioned problems at the campus are obstructing normal learning activities for students acquiring higher education at the BCTC.

Moreover, the aggrieved BCTC students fear that if Dr. Massaquoi remains in higher administration of the college, students will not get the worth of their financial resources spent to achieve education at the Institute, on grounds that Dr. Massaquoi is a surrogate of the former ruling CDC and won’t work in the interest of the Boakia’s led-government

Meanwhile, the aggrieved students have threatened to continue their protest actions on the college’s main campus, if prompt intervention is not made by officials of Bong County, especially the Bong County Legislative Caucus.

In response to the aggrieved student’s plights, the coordinator of the Bong County Service Center, Jefferson Gbaryan called on the students to be calm and allow him to communicate with the leadership of the Caucus to find redress to their concerns.

He further encouraged the students to do an official writing petition and deliver it to his office for onwards presentation to the Bong County Legislative Caucus.

Mr. Gbaryan who is currently serving as Acting Superintendent of Bong County, further assured the aggrieved BCTC students that their concerns will be channeled to the requisite authority of the Boakai’ administration for prompt intervention.

Notwithstanding, efforts by our Bong County correspondent to inquire from Dr. Massaquoi on the allegations raised by the students against his leadership did not materialize as calls and text messages sent to him were not responded to.
