Justice Minister, Kerenga Kua, has announced to Unitech students', Dr. Albert Schram, will be in the country next week as Vice Chancellor.
It comes after almost five-week's of boycotted classes and the appointment of a new council.
Sir Nagora Bogan was appointed Chancellor and the Sevua report was also released.
Students at Unitech have won a victory that still is not over.
A small piece of the journey remains; Dr Albert Schram walking into the front gate.
Students say the fight was more than just about getting Schram back.
It was a move to get rid of corruption in the University’s Management.
The second NEC group to visit the Students included Police Minister Robert Atiyafa, Higher Education Minister Delilah Gore and Justice Minister Kerenga Kua.
The NEC sent a group of Ministers after students boycotted for three weeks.
Before that, Prime Minister threatened to impose an SOE and a premature ending of the academic year.
And more followed after, the validity of the new council was also questioned with a court order, but that has all cleared up.
The old council members’ term are ending and a new council has taken over.
The announcement made by Minister Kua yesterday speaks volumes; a small victory that has showed the country the underlying rot in Managing this institute for the last 20 years.
Higher Education Minister, Delilah Gore, gave the Sevua report to the institute yesterday, one year after its commissioning.
Students will still remain out of classes until they see Dr Albert Schram back as Vice Chancellor.
Dr Albert Schram is still in Cairns waiting for his Visa to be processed on Monday.
He should be back by earliest on Tuesday next week.
Meanwhile parents, sponsors and stakeholders are hoping the boycott will not continue into its fifth week.
But the students’ stance still stands, No Schram No School.
