River Gee Scholarship Turns 4-9-1 Scam?

Scholarship students of River Gee County are reportedly being denied enrollment because officials of the county failed to pay the bills submitted by various academic institutions.

According to reports, the county administration through the office of the superintendent has bitterly refused to settle over US$51,000 accumulated arrears for seven universities.

Some of the students termed the county officials failure to pay their scholarship fees as a ‘4-1-9’ scam, meaning the scholarships were issued under pretense.

The River Gee University Student Union or RIGUSU, speaking on behalf of the body has given the county authorities a three-day ultimatum to settle the arrears to enable the students enroll for the next academic period.

Students from the African Methodist Episcopal University (AMEU), United Methodist University (UMU) and the African Methodist Zion University, amongst others are reportedly being denied admission because of the current debts the county owes for tuition.

“We call on our county officials to settle the amount of over US$51,000 accumulated arrears for seven universities for the past one academic year within three working days, beginning August 8, 2012,” statement issued in Monrovia by RIGUSU said.

The union said it has realized that the Office of the County Superintendent and the County Legislative Caucus continue to undermine efforts to unite university students of River Gee County.

RIGUSU accused the Office of the County Superintendent and the County Legislative Caucus of failing to properly coordinate and collaborate with each other in addressing students’ plight, as well as administering the affairs of the county.
