MONROVIA, Jan 6 (LINA) - The Administration of the University of Liberia (UL) has said that classes at the University of Liberia will not resume on Tuesday, January 7, as earlier announced.

UL Vice President for University Relations Dr. Momolu Getaweh said the UL Faculty Association (ULFA) has decided to remain disengaged from rendering academic services until their demands are met by the University administration.

Addressing a press conference Monday, Dr. Getaweh said the UL Administration is appealing to all students to stay off the campuses until the controversy is amicably resolved.

He pointed out that already, a special committee has been appointed by the Board of Trustees to investigate the complaints of the ULFA and that the committee is presently at work.

Dr. Getaweh, however, called on all staff of the University to continue to report to work daily as the institution is not officially closed.

He assured that the UL Administration is exerting all efforts to resolve the issues that led to the temporary closure of the University.
