Fresh report from Gbarnga, Bong County speaks of massive renovation works being done on the Bong County Technical College, BCTC.
According to a local journalist in the area, the college is being given some new look infrastructural wise.
An ELBC correspondent in Upper Bong County disclosed that works on the building has resumed affecting several departments of the college.
The floor and walls of the building is said to be tiled while a modern library is being set up at the college thus paving the way to ease the stress faced by students to do assignments and other research activities.
Meanwhile, citizens of Bong are said to begin raining praises on the President of the BCTC, Dr. Roland C. Massaquoi for the level of works being done.
The citizens are also calling for more support to be given to the administration of the former Liberian Agriculture Minister if the institution must achieve its goal of providing quality tertiary education.
Bong Technical College is the only community college yet to put live up to the expectations of Liberians in providing alternatives in higher education level.
Since 2013 former Liberian President, Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf established and commissioned community colleges across Liberia, BCTC is yet to put out any graduates compared to the Lofa County Community College, Grand Bassa County Community College amongst others.TNR
