Dr. Ophelia Inez Weeks, President of the University of Liberia

(LINA) – The administration of the University of Liberia (UL) has with immediate effect suspended all political activities, including student politics, on UL campuses until further notice.

The suspension comes in the wake of Monday’s June 3, disruption on the University of Liberia Capitol Hill campus, according to a release issued by the administration.

It said students run the risk of suspension or expulsion if this directive is breached.

Accordingly, the release stressed, no one on political grounds shall assemble or hold meetings or engage in any politics-related activities on any University of Liberia campus during this period of suspension.

The suspension affects political/solidarity marches, political gatherings, the wearing of symbols and emblems depicting and promoting campus-based political groups, student protest, among others.

Meanwhile, UL students are reminded that the revised UL Student Handbook strictly prohibits the use of disruptive noises, violence and vandalism on its campuses.
