50

The leadership of the University of Liberia Faculty Association (ULFA), has declared UL Business College Dean, Dr. Lester Zomatic Tenny “Persona non Grata”, for his continuous insults, bully, intimidation, and molestation of members of ULFA including the President of ULFA and other Executive Members of the Faculty Association.

The leadership ULFA has informed all members of the UL faculty and heads of Academic Units of the decision of the ULFA EMERGENCY GENERAL ASSEMBLY to re-engage with all Academic Activities with immediate effect while continuing other discussions.

Furthermore, the ULFA GA has declared the Dean A. Romeo Horton of the College of Business and Public Administration as a “Persona–non–Grata” to ULFA for his continuous insults, bully, intimidation and molestation of members of ULFA including the President of ULFA and other Executive Members of the Faculty Association.

It can be recalled that on June 23, 2023, ULFA General Assembly made a decision to disengage from all activities until several demands catalogued in their resolution were met.

As a consequence of this decision, all ULFA members withdrew from all academic activities.

After several discussions with state actors and Executive Committee Deliberations, ULFA members were said to be briefed of significant achievements in the negotiations such as the full implementation and enrollment of all faculty and pensioned former workers of the UL with the NASSCORP, Payments of arrears for Part-Time faculty, payment of arrears for Pensioned employees among others.

The GA has also mandated all faculty members to submit to an ULFA specialized committee through their respective chairpersons all academic credentials for verification and onward submission to the UL Authorities as a means of ensuring the full actualization of the credentials audit process at the University of Liberia.

ULFA said it appreciates all faculties and heads of Academic Units who respectfully complied and supported the decision of the General Assembly. ULFA also recognizes the leading efforts of the Minister of State and his team to resolve the impasse on the implementation of issues raised in her June 23, 2023 resolution.

As a professional body, ULFA said it commits to all peaceful processes that would resolve issues of concerns to members of the University family.
