MP Undialu, please help tertiary students

Letters, Normal

The National, Wednesday July 3rd, 2013

 I APPLAUD Philip Undialu of Koroba-Kopiago electorate for his leadership style that was adopted since he was my prefect in Tari High School in 1997. 

Leadership is all about membership and I believe you have started well and led us thus far without fear or favour. 

I see you as an educationist as you talk on developing human resources and I salute you for your bright leadership career. 

However, it is sad news that most of the human resources in your electorate attending Pacific Adventist University will miss out on the educational opportunity as they have been warned to pay up their outstanding fees or withdraw from the school. 

Most of these students are now in the big city this semester break, trying their best to look for ways to pay their fees. 

I wish to quote Nelson Mandela that “Education is the most powerful tool used in the world today”. 

Some also say that “The roots of education are bitter, but the fruits are sweeter”. 

I believe we have come a long way in our education journey in the face of  all kinds of challenges.

Current students have a few years left to see their dreams come true, but it has come to a halt because of lack of finance.

I wish to call on my MP to step in and rescue us from this dilemma. 

Your contribution will not be a waste. It  will help build the human resources of our electorate and God will richly bless you in your political career.
