Prof Gbamaja: life under threat

Some ‘disgruntled’ students at Fourah Bay College, University of Sierra Leone, have threatened to cause havoc at the residence of Deputy Vice Chancellor and Principal, Professor Sahr Gbamaja, and the Deputy Registrar Z.O. Domingo if the duo refused them permission to write their first semester exams.

The anonymous students issued a public notice dated on 26th April, 2018 in which they stated that the college administration should allow them to write their exams without any hindrance and that would pay their fees subsequently.

In the notice, they threatened that students have already done the ground work to resist any attempt by the administration to stop unregistered students from writing their exams.

Hundreds of students were barred from writing their exams last year, which prompting a violent response from affected students.

When contacted, Prof. Gbamaja told this medium in a telephone interview that the administration would allow the students to write their exams and pursue other methods that would force them to pay their tuition fees.

The varsity don said their change of stance was as a result of correspondences they had received from State House and students’ body pleading on behalf of the defaulting students to be allowed to write their exams.
