Morobe Tertiary Students Petition Provincial Government

About 5,000 Morobe tertiary students in the country may miss enrollment this year following budget cuts by the provincial government.

Morobe Tertiary Students Union President, Hans Gwaiko, said this year the provincial government cut its budget from K5million to K4million.

Today, the students met with representatives from the Morobe administration office to express their disappointment.

The Morobe students from the tertiary institutions in the country gathered at the Morobe Provincial Government to express their frustration.

The students told representatives from the provincial administration they will be presenting a two-point petition to the authorities on Friday to reconsider the budget cut.

The students want the K1 million cut from the initial K5million to be added back. And the provincial government to review the decision so that all Morobe students must benefit from the provincial grant.

The students argued that there was no awareness or consultation done prior to the budget cut.

Morobe Tertiary Students Union President, Hans Gwaiko, says Morobe’s human resource may drop if the provincial government does not reconsider its decision.

He is appealing to Morobe’s political leaders to look into their grievances and help them.

Acting Deputy Provincial Administrator- Social Services, Robin Bazzinus, was present to respond to the students’ frustrations.
