The Board of Trustees of the Grand Bassa Community College (GBCC) has intervened in the alleged go-slow action by some staff and faculty members of the college.

Speaking to newsmen after a long meeting at the administration building in Buchanan, the Chairperson of the Board of Trustees, Augurie E. Herring said the Board has listened to the plight of the teachers and is going to take action as it relates to some of the benefits that they are claiming.

Madam Herring disclosed that the Staffs and Faculties that signed the vote of no confidence in Dr. Levi Zangaii have said that they will put it on hold until the Board meeting on Saturday June 11, 2016 at which time the president of the Republic of Liberia, Madam Ellen Johnson Sirleaf will be formally notified.

She also said the Board of Trustees is aware of all of the situations at the Grand Bassa Community College and has set up a committee to investigate. It can be recalled that on Monday June 6, 2016, some staff and faculty members of the Grand Bassa Community College under the umbrella GBCC faculty and staff association have signed a resolution for the removal of the college’s president, Dr. Levi Zangaii for ‘lack of professionalism and policy’.

The faculties and members lf his staff said they have many issues against the president, some of which include; the usual deduction of salaries for general insurance, misuse of the college’s funds, bad labour practice, amongst others.

When contacted, the head of the Grand Bassa Community College Faculty and staff Association, Mr. Philip Johnson said the action is not to paralyze the College, but they have concerns which needed to be raised.

He maintained that the vote of no confidence is still pending because the Board of Trustees makes the staffs to understand that the Board of Trustees was not the one who appointed the President of the college, but rather President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.

Mr. Johnson mentioned that he was happy that the Press Secretary to the President Mr. Jerolinmek Piah was present to take the message to the President. He also used the occasion to call on his colleagues to return to their various duties as they await the result of the Board of Trustees’ meeting.
