400 STUDENTS’ FATE HANGS IN BALANCE OVER THE GOVERNMENT’S FAILURE TO PAY USD $14K RENT
BUCHANAN, Liberia- Over four hundred students of the government-run William V.S. Tubman Elementary and Junior High School in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County are expected to be thrown out of the Payne’s building due to the Government’s alleged failure to pay rental fees of USD $14,000 for the building.
Our reporter observed that the Payne family recently placed a note on the School announcing that effectively July 31, 2022, their building will be out for lease.
In September 2021, the owners of the building halted the registration activities of the school due to the government’s alleged failure to pay US$22,500 allegedly owed the owners of the building used by the Ministry of Education to run the school.
It was established from family sources that they allowed the school to operate after USD $8,500 was paid with a commitment to have paid the balance of USD $14,000 in March of this year.
According to our family source, they’ve written the Ministry of Education several times but they’re yet to respond.
This platform contacted the County Education Officer Nathaniel Cisco for clarification but his phone was switched off.
