The Student Union Body of Milton Margai Technical University (MMTU) has called on president, Julius Maada Bio to reinstate Professor Philip Kanu as the Vice Chancellor and Principal of the University.

The students made this call in an open letter issued on Monday 28 November 2022.

Read the letter below:

Dear President Julius Maada Bio,

Reference: Request to Reinstate Professor Philip Kanu as the Vice Chancellor and principal of the University.

We acknowledged the Investigations by the ACC on our principal that was instituted to sabotage the leadership of our astute Principal.

The general students body has decided to hold a massive demonstration on the three campuses- Goderich Campus, Congo-cross Campus and Brookfields Campus until our principal is reinstated in his full position as Vice Chancellor and principal of the Milton Margai Technical University-Sierra Leone.

His Suspension has been a conspiracy to undermine the smooth running of the University, which has been felt by all of us as students of the University.

We are therefore giving an alternative of one week, that is from the date of this letter to the next seven days for his reinstatement, otherwise we shall massively demonstrate in the three campuses on every day basis until he is reinstated.

We discourage any Political interference or intolerance into the leadership of professor Philip Kanu,who has proven exceptional in his administration.

Looking forward to a prompt response from you Sir.

Yours Faithfully
Signed: Students Body.
