Students from the “LNG project areas” in Southern Highlands attending tertiary institutions are disappointed the provincial government is not assisting them by subsidising their school fees.
Neither Governor Anderson Agiru’s office nor the SHPG has bothered despite our pleas for aid.
This confirms our fears about their ignorance in developing the province’s human resource.
Providing education is not only a basic right for every child in SHP or PNG but throughout the world.
Students today will form the backbone of SHP in future.
However, their inaction is not a surprise, especially if you are a Southern Highlander reading this.
Is this because of our attitude – “What you have or your wealth must not be shared among others because they will make you suffer in the end”?
