In furtherance of its corporate social responsibility, the Central Bank of Liberia (CBL) has provided several desktop computers to the A. Romeo Horton College of Business and Public Administration at the University of Liberia (UL).
The Special Assistant to the Executive Governor of the CBL, Alphonsus Zeon, presented the computers on behalf of the bank’s leadership.
He said that the donation is part of the bank’s gesture towards educational development and enhancement at the University.
Zeon said, "We know the efforts being made by the new Dean in trying to capacitate, and the CBL, being the monitoring arm of the cliché, is also pleased to identify with the Business College as part of efforts to build capacity."
"On behalf of the Governor and Management of the CBL, it is my pleasure to present to you these computers," he said.
Speaking on behalf of the university while receiving the computers, the Dean of the A. Romeo Horton College of Business and Public Administration, Dr. Lester A. Tenny, said the intervention by the Executive Governor and the management of CBL came at a time when it was needed most.
“This gesture is coming at a time when we are in desperate need to transform, rebrand, and re-engineer the business college of the University,” he said.
While appreciating the CBL leadership, Tenny said he looks forward to more assistance, especially given the tight fiscal monitoring space stating that his institution highly appreciates the intervention.
“On behalf of the A. Romeo Horton College of Business and Public Administration and through the President of the University of Liberia, Prof. J. Sarwolo Nelson, we want to appreciate the Executive Governor and the management team of the CBL in identifying with the college.
“This is as part of the CBL’s corporate social responsibility towards creating an enabling environment for students at the university,” he concluded.
