Politics Over Education: Ex-Minister McGill Uses UL School Buses for Early Campaign as Classes Suspended for Two Days
K-News has gathered that buses that are used to transport students to the Fendell campus of the University of Liberia are being used by former Minister of State Nathaniel McGill in Margibi County.
There are reports that McGill is thinking about resuscitating his damaged political career by contesting the senatorial seat in either Bong or Margibi County.
Over the weekend, the disgraced former Minister rented over ten buses from the National Transit Authority (NTA) to transport several high school students from Todee district to Kakata to honor his visitation.
Because most of these buses are used to commute students of the University of Liberia to and from school, the administration of the University of Liberia suspended classes for two days.
Making the announcement, the UL administration said the Fendell-based classes have been suspended for two days due to “technical challenges” with the University’s student transport service providers.
“The University of Liberia (UL) announces that Fendall-based classes have been suspended as of today, Monday, and Tuesday, 26th & 27th September 2022, due to technical challenges with the University’s student transport service providers,” UL stated in a release.
Meanwhile, in an interview with K-News, the Superintendent of Margibi County, Jerry Varnie and other top county officials said the visitation of Mr. McGill was organized by the student community to appreciate the former Minister for his scholarship scheme in the county.
However, in the middle of the program, it turned into an endorsement ceremony as officials of the county endorsed the former minister to contest the county’s senatorial seat comes 2023.
