Tubman University’s Staffs Association Stage Go-slow

By: Emmanuel T. Quiah Maryland County

Maryland- Tubman University Staff Association (TUSA) have staged a go slow action at the end of its petition statement read early Wednesday, March 1, 2023, during a peaceful demonstration on the Campuses of the William V.S. Tubman University in Harper City, Maryland County. TUSA is an organization that brings together all teaching staff at the state’s second run University. Reading the Petition statement on behalf of the aggrieved Lecturers, TUSA’s President, Theodore Fahnbulleh disclosed that the group was organized to buttress the efforts of TU’s Administration in steering the affairs of the institution and as well to ensure that all teaching staffs work under a free atmosphere with equal rights in discharging of their duties. “This body was set to steer the affairs of TU which has been suffocated over the years with administrative discriminations. To write the wrongs of the past and to create policies of ensuring that workers work in a free environment with equity.” He said. Mr. Fahnbulleh, however maintained that the demonstration is not first of its kind, but is intended to remind the administration of Tubman University on counts enlisted in their recent protests. In response to the quests, it is alleged that the administration told the teaching staff that the monies raised from students to purchase a school bus, was used to purchase a vehicle (car) for personal use to the University’s acting President Dr. Wreh Elliott, a point the Tubman University Staff Association describes as “Misappropriation of public funds.” The allegations also stressed that the recent increment made at TU was only benefited by the administration, leaving out the teaching staff while in the same vain, the administration has failed to provide safe drinking water sources on the campuses of Tubman University which is the state’s second owned University. The petition statement mentioned that the Teaching Staff Association had on several occasions written the administration, but the administration in its responses referred them (the aggrieved lecturers) to the national government, noting that they (the administration) had no power to properly respond to the quests. Commenting further, the aggrieved teaching staff are calling on the National Government for restructuring of the University’s cabinets or a total removal of all cabinet members including the University’s acting President Dr. Elliot Wreh, and place a leadership that is willing to handle raising issues positively, thereby making a pronouncement that a go-slow-action has begun, until their counts can be given redress. “With the power in me vested, we declare go slow until we have a real impactful response to all our counts beginning at the end of this statement.” Tubman University Staff Association President Theodore Fahnbulleh asserted.
