(lbsonline/Liberia)-Montserrado County Representative, Bill Twehway, says there will be no abrupt increment in the tuition at the University of Liberia (UL) as being speculated in some quarters.

Representative Twehway chairs the Lower House Committee on Education.

He said: “Any increment in school fees at the UL will be done through consultations.”

“The issue of increment will involve the university student leaderships and authorities, and other educational stakeholders,” the Montserrado County lawmaker said.

He made the statement Tuesday, February 13, 2013 at the UL’s Capitol Hill campus in Monrovia, following hours of discussions with the institution’s authorities.

Hon. Twehway said: “The House Committee on Education is doing everything possible to ensure that your schooling is not disrupted.”

Representative Twehway told lbsonline that there will be a gradual increment in tuition at the UL, but not now.
The lawmaker is also cautioning students of the university not to engage in demonstration.

Recently, there have been speculations in Monrovia and environs that the University of Liberia Administration was planning to affect a US$5.00 increment in the current L$175.00 per credit hour.
