Students of the Fourah Bay College (FBC) have strongly refuted claims made by the Minister of Youths Employment and Sports, Hon. Paul Kamara at the British Council auditorium on Friday August 12, 2011 to wit: that the two prominent political groups on the FBC campus - namely the White and Black - are APC and SLPP respectively. In a press release dated August 15, 2011, an association of FBC students consider the statement as unfortunate, ill-motivated, injurious, perilous and geared towards causing chaos on campus since it was considered an attempt to import National politics into studentsí discussions and further drive a wedge between colleague students on the FBC Campus.
The association also made it clear to the Minister that there are APC and SLPP student groups on campus devoid of White and Black. Student groups on campus, the press release continued, are purely based on studentsí ideologies ranging from radicalism to liberalism. Concern students are therefore urging all politicians to stop associating the political groups on campus to national politics.
The press release was signed by the P.R.O. Mr Alhaji Koroma and the Coordinator Mr Thomas Dixon.
