Dear editor, I would like to ask Omar Jah of the University of The Gambia this simple question; when are you going to stop messing up the only public university of this peaceful Gambia?
Jah has recently accused a certain student of UTG of writing a letter trying to get him (Jah) fired. But contrary to this claim, the student was only asking for UTG Management’s audience with the student body in an attempt for the latter to take the opportunity to put before the former their concerns. Instead of being receptive to this simple request as DVC, Admin, Jah started jumping all over the place and accused the student for something he(the student) never claimed. Jah informed his yea yea boy, Morro Krubally who then started informing other students about this false allegation. But then when invited by a group of students in which he Krubally was confronted by the accused student he was lost for words and claimed that he was informed by a certain lecturer in history only for that lecturer to vehemently deny such a statement as coming from his mouth. This has resulted into a bitter argument between the two.
Initially, Jah’s false accusation had really angered some students and therefore invited the student in question to reprimand him. However, the students later realized that the allegation was false. The students were not happy that Jah had taken them for a ride.
This incidence reminds me of the recent articles I read about Jah and co. Jah and his co. should know that UTG is bigger than any of them. Jah should also realize that recent history in administering UTG is not in his favor. We the students very well know that he and his cousin brother Kah were on the brink of collapsing the institution. Their legacy has left UTG in tatters.
Reports have it that both Jah and his sir sir man, Morro are gradually dumping the Ag. VC Kalil and have already started talking to the recently appointed VC from a foreign country so as to be in control when the man assumes office. It seems UTG is in for a big battle going forward. Time will tell.
It is indeed high time for the powers that be to handle this Jah character. His behavior is going beyond limits. Since the removal of Kah from office, Jah is constantly engaged in engineering endless petty squabbles and bitter quarrels between and among both staff and students in his attempt to assume the Vice Chancellorship of UTG.
