The spokesperson of the disbanded officers of the Armed Forces of Liberia says he foresees trouble if the Government of Liberia forces the closure of school in the country.
Speaking via mobile phone from Bong County,Captain Jerry Kolliedisclosed that those calling for the closure of schools in the country presently have their children in different countries going to school.
According to Captain Kollie, the act of closing schoolsat this time has the propensity to bring confusion in the country.
He added that before school could open, parents and guardians appealed to the government not to reopen schools, but the government did not listen to their calls.
He further stressed that parents have now spent their last cents and the Government of Liberia is set to make mockery out of them, something he said is not acceptable.
The former AFL Captain noted that there are thousands of 12th and 9th graders in the country, closing school now will not be a help to them.
He wants the Government of Liberia to allow the academic year come to a successful end for students to be promoted to their respective classes.
“This government under the administration of President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf is not working in the interest of the common people” the former AFL Captains added.
He also disclosed that the Government of Liberia has dashed the interest of the commoners by failing to carry out a percentage of its promises over the years.
The former Army officer commended the students for the action they took to block the President’s car from going to the foreign Affairs’ office.
According to him, many parents have spent the little they had and the Government decision will discourage them from sending their children to school for the next academic year.
