University of Papua New Guinea (UPNG) students from Morobe, temporarily residing at Jubilee University in Port Moresby, will return to their home province after living there for weeks.
This follows the suspension of the UPNG academic year, which forced them out of the campus.
Today, the Morobe Provincial Government has come to the aid of students with K23,000, which will go towards their accommodation bills, rations and other needs.
Morobe Governor, Kelly Naru, said in the midst of addressing national issues, the students have exercised their democratic rights this far.
President of the Morobe Students Association, Greg Guri, said they are happy about their governor’s visit during their repatriation to their home province.
However, he encouraged students not to incite trouble saying the appropriate channel to serve justice is through the court, and national elections.
He said resorting to other means will bring instability and chaos.
Naru urged the students to embrace their education and follow appropriate channels in serving justice.
“You should not do anything to the extent of creating another problem, leave it as it is,” Naru said.
