Education is a priority: Yoto

Youth & Careers

INVESTING in education is one of the development pillars of Western province and its leaders are united and willing to invest in its human resources, according to Governor Taboi Awi Yoto.
Yoto, when delivering two vehicles to Kiunga Vocational Centre and a mini bus to the provincial administration on Monday, said he would like to see the vocational centre become a polytech institute.
“Our pillars to empower people to be self-reliant are education, health and agriculture to be supported by efforts in maintaining infrastructures,” he said.
“We will turn Kiunga vocational into a polytechnical institute so that our students will not go to other provinces.
“We have invested K50,000 to K100,000 into the school to achieve this.
“We are looking at putting up two nursing colleges as well as another technical school.”
Yoto urged the people to look after existing infrastructures of schools and hospitals.
“Look after our school and hospital infrastructures so that we don’t waste time and money,” he said.
