A Campus based Students Political Party at the University of Liberia Progressive Students Alliance has distanced itself from the reported planned protest scheduled by several student groupings at the institution to be extended to private institutions of higher learning.
recently, several students Political Parties at the University of Liberia staged protest on the campuses of the institution demanding the Administration of UL to meet the financial demand for the Faculty Association who were on a go-slow action.
According to PROSA, the planned protest is not the majority decision of the students at the state run institution, and as such, it is prudent to remind the government to protect other private institutions to avoid being affected.
PROSA said despite their critical stand on the government to meet the Faculty Members financial request to end their go slow actions; they are not in any way thinking of joining other students to disrupt other peaceful students from the private institutions of learning.
PROSA at the same time condemned the Liberia National Police brutality on students who were involved in recent protest.
Justin Jallabah, Intellectual Discourse Chairman of the Progressive Students Alliance of Liberia spoke at a news on conference on Wednesday, September 22, 2021 in Monrovia.
” While it is true that we have on numerous of occasions as intimated in our press conferences on September 8 and September 19, 2021 respectively — we have made our position unequivocally clear on the go-slow action of the UL’s Faculty Association and the deplorable conditions of the University of Liberia’s campuses, Justin mentioned”.
“We want to re-emphasize and re-accentuate our stance and remain unapologetic for our critical stance on the matter. PROSA calls on the Weah-led goverment to ensure that the UL’s Faculty Association demands be addressed without any further delay, he furthered”.
“PROSA wants for the government of Liberia through the Ministry of Finance Development and Planing to swiftly double up its game to provide budgetary allotment for the renovation of the University of Liberia’s campuses and create smooth operations at the Nation’s Premier institute for tertiary education, student Justin indicated”.
Nevertheless, the party has distanced herself from the planned actions to disrupt normal academic learning activities at the following universities: the United Methodist University (UMU); Africa Methodist Episcopal University (AMEU); African Methodist Episcopal Zion University (AMEZU); Stella Maris, St. Clements University; Lincoln College and Starz College amongst other higher learning institutions in Liberia.
