A former Bong County Senator has said that negotiations have been concluded for the establishment of a teachers training college in the central Liberian town of Gbarnga, but did not state when it would start.
Senator Franklin O. Siakor told the media that two teachers training institutes or colleges in Europe have agreed to assist the construction of the project which will be a significant for the county and its neighbors.
Siakor, who did not name the two European institutions which expressed the desire to help in the realization of the project, said when constructed, the college would help to train many people in the field.
"When the college is constructed and completed, it would issue "C" Certificate; it will properly trained would-be teachers who will mode the minds of the future leaders," he noted.
Siakor, acting political leader of the Liberty Party (LP), is the founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Developmental Network-Liberia (DEN-L), a local NGO.
The college will be among several teachers training institutions in the country. Already, there are the Zorzor Teachers Training Institute (ZTTI) in Lofa County; Webbo Rural Teachers Training Institute (WRTTI) in River Gee County; Kakata Rural Teachers Training Institute (KRTTI) in Margibi County and the William V. S Tubman Teachers College at the University of Liberia.
