The recent increment in tuition at the University of Liberia has sparked disagreement among officials of the student government.
According to one of the student leaders, Siaffa Konneh, head of the Militant Wing of the Vangard Student Unification Party (SUP), the confusion erupted when members of the party were discussing an alleged US$600.00 received by the party's chairman from the UL administration.
Student Siaffa Konneh said based on his consistency to know about the money, the Chairman announced his expulsion from the party which he said is not part of the party's guideline.
“I will remain consistent and resolute in the struggle,” student Konneh said.
The party's Chairman Nathan Kpa disclosed that Siaffa Konneh and few members of the student party were expelled based on the party's constitution although the specific portion of the party's constitution that supports their decision was not outlined.
Mr. Kappa disclosed that he did not receive any money from the UL Administration to betray the student populace as claimed by Konneh.
Chairman Kpa explained that the expulsion was based on their refusal to abide by the party's philosophy.
