UOG to stay open: Leaders

Source : The National Newspaper 

HIGHLANDS leaders say the University of Goroka is the pride of the region and will not be forced to shut down by the recent student unrest.

Eastern Highlands provincial administrator Solomon Tato and senior education officials from Western Highlands have vowed to work together with leaders of the other Highlands provinces to initiate reconciliation between the students.
Tato and his team from the university have undertaken necessary procedures to facilitate a peace process by collecting views from all the leaders and students from the region to come up with the best way possible.
They said they would not let what had happened at the University of PNG (cancellation of the academic year) happen at UoG.
Western Highlands provincial education board chairman Leo Mininga said the student unrest at UoG was an eye opener for all Highlands leaders.
“It is a wake-up call for our leaders to use their problem solving skills on how we can solve issues of provincial, regional and national importance.
“Student behaviour is one of the factors in this aspect. We cannot let what transpired inside a university campus jeopardise the education of our future leaders.
