Morobe’s Tertiary Students today protested against the Morobe Provincial Administration on the Gerson Solulu Scholarship Policy, online registration and the K4 million Provincial Education Budget for 2018.
The students challenged the Provincial Administration to review the Education Policy, to stop registration online and to increase the Provincial Education Budget to K6 million.
Morobe’s Provincial Education Minister, Andrew Gena assured the students that the Provincial Executive Committee members will meet tomorrow to address these concerns.
This is the crowd of students that turned up at the Morobe Provincial Government Office today. These students attend 25 Tertiary Institutions and Collages in PNG.
They gathered here since 8 am in the morning. The students waited to be addressed by Morobe’s Provincial Administration, until noon today.
