National, Normal


THE Morobe Union of Students (MUS) is all set to host the first ever student leaders summit in Goroka, Eastern Highlands province.
Student leaders last Friday received a much-needed support from the Lae Biscuit Company.
The company donated 50 pairs of T-shirts, bags, and cartons of Snax biscuits that would go towards the hosting of the summit at the National Sports Institute (NSI) next month.
Morobe Governor Luther Wenge assured the student leaders of his government’s support.
The provincial government will also be actively participating during the summit.
Mr Wenge said his government had already given K44,000 to the student’s union for the event.
He said all nine Morobe MPs and academics in the province had been invited to present papers during the summit.
“Investing in intellectuals should be a priority of the government,” he said.
Interim MUS president Gebion Zuhuc was grateful to the Lae Biscuit for “being the first business house”.
He added that the summit was seen a means of uniting both leaders and students in the province and other parts of the country.
Kwabum MP and Minister for Defence Bob Dadae commended Lae Biscuit Company as well.
Mr Dadae urged the student leaders to stand together and remain united in promoting education in the province and the county.
