STUDENTS of the University of Liberia, beginning this academic semester 2018, will no longer have to pay tuition at the University of Liberia. That portion of the financial obligation would now be borne out by the Government of Liberia, meaning only fees those enrolled would now pay.

President George Manneh Weah, who is by law Visitor of the University of Liberia, made the surprise announcement at the Capitol Hill campus of the University of Liberia, when he delivered a special back-to-back school statement in front of hundreds of students.

Students were incandescent upon hearing the news, shouting slogans of praise while dancing to the news.

More details on this developing story would be provided.
