District pays K500,000 in fees for tertiary students


SOHE MP Henry Amuli has delivered a total payment of K500,000 as school fee assistance to students from the district studying at tertiary institutions around the country recently.
A total of K108,000 was presented to students at the University of Papua New Guinea (UPNG) on Sept 13 whilst other cheque presentations were made by district officers to other tertiary institutions where students from Sohe are studying.
Amuli, in a series of visits to deliver the assistance, told students that education remained his top priority and Sohe would continue to support the education sector.
“Supporting education in the district is one of my priorities, but due to challenges in terms of DSIP (district service improvement programme) funding and court battles after my election, I was not able to assist until today,” he told the UPNG students.
Amuli said the support would continue based on the availability of funding.
“You are the pride of our district, our province, our society and your respective tribes, clans and families,” he told the students.
“You will be the future leaders, managers, accountants, lawyers and doctors of this nation.
“So stay committed and focused on your studies and make us all proud.
“Be good and productive citizens.”
UPNG’s Sohe students thanked Amuli and acknowledged the timely support.
UPNG Oro Students Association Cyril Tuhesi said some students were about to withdraw from school because they could not complete payment of fees and thanked Amuli for the help.
