Commenting on speculations that the IMT was at the verge of dismissing some employees of the College, Dr. Massaquoi noted “we have no intention to dismiss any employee of this Institution” however, it is our hope that all employees of the College work diligently for the growth and progress of the Institution.
Dr. Massaquoi said, since it was mandated by the board of Trustees of the College, the Interim management Team and the administration have been working together to achieve a lot including transition of academic activities from the William V. S. Tubman Gray Campus to the Gboveh Hill Campus and assured that the entire College will move to its main campus at the end of August.
Dr. Massaquoi further disclosed that a technical support unit headed by Mr. Franklin Cassell will continue to work to ensure systems are put in place.
