State House Office of the President of Sierra Leone has appealed to outraged university students to keep the peace and await investigations into their concerns.This follows an angry protest march by the students from their Fourah Bay College campus up Mount Aureol down to the center of town. The march ended with a placard carrying protest in front of the State House on Monday 14th March, 2016.


The irate students held a peaceful protest in front of State House, demanding the sacking of the principal of the college and the reverse of a decision by the college administration to stop unregistered students from attending lectures.


The protest followed a press conference that was held at the college by the National Union of Sierra Leone Student (NUSS) to discuss the pressing issues that are affecting the learning of students. Following the press conference, the college administration summoned NUSS executives to a closedoor meeting where it was agreed that the college has reverse some of its decisions regarding the registration process.


The president of NUSS, Mohamed Sheridan Kamara said that they have agreed with the college administration to setup an interim student representative body before the first week of April, 2016.


Also, NUSS president said the college administration has agreed that students would now be allowed to register upon completion of 50% of their total fees. 

Notwithstanding, he said the college still stands in its position to stop unregistered students from attending lectures after the suspended period of lectures.


As a result, there were a huge number of students who felt seriously aggrieved with the college insisting position of suspending lectures, and also are calling for the sacking of the principal of the college.


In response, the Office of the President has in a press release dated 14th March, 2016, called on students to exercise patience. The release states, the President is inviting officials of the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, FBC administration, representatives of the students body of FBC and NUSS to a meeting scheduled for Wednesday 16th March, 2016 at State House, so as to find a lasting solution on issues that are affecting student's welfare.
