NUSA or Nuisance
The recent news item, "NUSA Supports Mittel Steel Concession Agreement", is somewhat disturbing.
It's the old, we've had it so bad for so long anything will do story. It's the story of get it while the getting is good. Unfortunately, it is also may be the story of what are you going to do with a university education when the bulk of the jobs will go to unskilled and semi-skilled labor. Old Nimba County left with mine waste running through the streams in the shadow of never to be reclaimed gaping erosive scares in Papa's land and businesses that run their short course and fade away with the foreign capital that propped them up for show.
So, the President of the Nimba University Student Association has called on the government of Liberia to finalize the Mittel Steel concession agreement and expressed support for the speedy commencement of the operations of Mittel Steel in the county.
Well, be careful of what you wish for young man. You just might get it.
