The boycotting of classes by students at the University of Technology in Lae now has the attention of Government.
Minister for Higher Education Research Science and Technology Delilah Gore, announced that she will be flying to Lae tomorrow, to address students, lecturers, parents and stakeholders at Unitech.
Minister Gore made it clear that she has been briefed by relevant authorities of the Sevua Investigation, and is prepared to settle the case once and for all.
Her move comes a day before the 48 hours of the students petition elapses.
Earlier today Prime Minister Peter O’Neill had a discussion with Minister Gore, discussing relevant elements of the Sevua investigation and tension among students and staff of Unitech.
Gore called on all students and staff to resume classes as the matter will be taken care off.
Meanwhile Director General of Higher Education Professor David Kavanamur said, the investigations done by the Sevua team had influences from different parties including politics.
He says, the minister is now on an equal footing to stand alone and solve this matter.
The Higher Education Minister will travel to Lae tomorrow morning with her team to address Unitech students, staff and stakeholders.
