New SUP Chairman Demands
The chairman of the Student Unification Party (SUP) at the University of Liberia (UL), Prince G. Brown wants students and administration of the state-run university to enjoy civility following suspension of the party’s chairman, Butu Levi.
Chairman Brown recounted that the new leadership was necessitated on the basis of rescuing the party’s impeccable reputation and immaculate legacy from then chairman Levi who allegedly circumvented the fundamental principles, philosophy and values for which the martyrs of SUP unconditionally and uncompromisingly laid down their precious lives and for which the veterans fiercely struggled for decades.
“The party informs all intellectual enthusiasts, enlightened students, motorcyclists, commercial drivers, marketers and underprivileged masses kept on the margin of society that you can rest assured, SUP remains your champion of genuine advocacy bridging the gap against social injustices, economic inequality, academic vices as well as political alienations. The party has remained consistently victorious in all of the struggles. Sincerity in prioritizing the masses’ agenda is the surest basis of our engagement,” chairman Brown said in a release.
According to chairman Brown, compromise is not and has never been a word in the party’s dictionary. Adding “SUP refused to bow down to or wine and dine with the regime of the late elite President William R. Tolbert of the Grand old True Whig Party, the administration of the Samuel Doe, the government of Charles Taylor as well as the regime of Madam Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.”
The SUP’s chairman said they wouldn’t bow down to President George Weah’s administration as been alleged in some quarters of the student community and the general public.
“SUP remains critical of government’s policies than ever before in the interest of the generation yet unborn and the poverty-stricken masses of society,” he added.
