Anything to make life easy for Africans
Africa is rich with both human and natural resources but Africa is govern / led by useless criminals bereft of pragmatic ideas to move the continent forward, Western nations are enjoying good governance because they have selfless and visionary leaders unlike Africa that is led by burukutu, ogogoro and Oluwole kind of useless vampires called leaders sad

I dont think education should be totally free at tertiary level especially where there will be needs for researches, practicals and other money requiring activities, rather I think he should have subsidice it, even in developeded countries, people pay for tertiary education. I applaud his intention though.

Please i hope you realise that Liberia's best university doesn't rank top 18,000 in the world university rankings. Despite a poor representation by private unis, the Uni of Liberia and other public schools are not even indexed at all.

The trick isn't making it free but making it effective. Africa hasn't suffered from the lack of affordable universities as much as it has from innefective ones.

While i am not against free education i am of the opinion that quality should not be sacrificed on the alter of affordability...


Spot on

I wonder why people tend to get overly excited when they hear the word FREE.

With the right synergy between universities and the marketplace, more people will be able to afford education without relying on a benevolent Big Brother.

Fees paid in Nigerian government owned universities are never accounted for.
They still rely on FG subventions and still collect salaries from the Federal purse.
But instead of making it tuition free, they proposing where they will be paying N250-350,000.

I'm so surprised people are applauding such development.....

Even in free town nothing is free. He should have at least subsidized it not making it totally free.

The whole shit will collapse soonest...

Good for Liberia. Quality and affordable education is a key to development of a country.

I as a person, I have never paid Tution fees before from my primary to secondary, then tertiary and now my postgraduate.

PS: This information is for those that doesn’t know it has been in existence in ALL federal higher institutions and some state schools here in Nigeria for a long time.

If ex-international and world footballer of the year George Ophong Weah can value education which himself did not have and of which he decided to offer it free.

Then shame to our politicians who enjoy free education from the first republic but decided to deny their people free access to education.
