Dear DWU and PAU students,
Your silence on this issue of national concern in which UNITECH and UPNG are calling for the Fraud Squad’s reinstatement and the Prime Minister to step down is DEAFENING!
We do understand that you will face difficulties if you protest in any way or hold a prolonged demonstrations.
However we ask you to consider the following points:
Church Health workers not getting paid
The budget to Church Health Services has been cut by K50 million kina. Many Church health workers are not getting paid. Where will your health students find employment in this shrunken employment market?
Cuts to Education
Your teachers will join a workforce that is uncertain about when and where its next lot of funding will come from. TFF has been cut. Education Minister Nick Kuman has advised schools to charge project fees again.
Delays in TESAS funds
Ask your administration if they are facing delays in the progress of TESAS funds to your respective universities?
Where will your business students find employment when you graduate?
The economy is in serious debt. Companies are laying off workers. Where will you work?
There are many things to tell you. But I can’t due to the limited space and time. The bottom line is that church run Universities should NOT bury their heads in the sand and pretend that all is well. Because all is NOT well.
If you cannot hold prolonged protest, we need you to tell us where you stand.
Do not support passively support a Prime Minister who refuses to obey the rule of law and the spirit of the constitution.
Your silence means your support for a dictatorial regime.
Your silence means you condone the actions of a corrupt Prime Minister and government.
We seek your support!
