-Rep. Fofana Revealed
The Representative of District #4 in Margibi County, Ben A. Fofana has reported that there is a high level of conspiracy that is impeding the dream of transforming BWI to a technical college.
Making the disclosure over the weekend at the celebration of the 87th gala anniversary of the school, Representative Fofana who did not single out the names of any individuals, said the dream to make the institution a technical college has been compromised.
“The dream to make the institution a technical college long started when the BWI Alumni Association, administration and the Board of Governors held an educational conference on the campus of the school with all universities being represented and a recommendation was proffered from that conference, but it is still lying down somewhere,” he alleged.
Rep. Fofana further argued that citizens of the county in the county development agenda said they wanted to see BWI becoming a technical college before 200, but that is yet to be done and by that according to him the expectations of the citizens is yet to be met.
The Margibi County lawmaker noted that his statement comes as a result of comments made by the commission on higher education that BWI does not have the facility and manpower that are required to reach the level of a technical college.
He added that Harbel currently has a college which does not have a cornerstone but was accredited by the commission on higher education and is expected to start offering BSC during the next academic year.
“Bong Technical College is also offering BSC as well as other colleges that do not have facilities more the Booker Washington Institute,: he argued. He expressed the need for those in authority to vigorously fight against those who are conspiring against this dream.
