SI students at UPNG affected by boycott

Solomon Islands students studying at the University of Papua New Guinea (UPNG) are being affected by a move to boycott classes and that has been extended for another week.

The UPNG Students Reprehensive Council (SRC) has extended the class boycott for another week.

UPNG students and other tertiary institutions in PNG last week demanded Prime Minister Peter O’Neill to step down and face the fraud squad.

A partition was signed by the UPNG national students with the help of SRC in which they demanded PM O’Neill to go and collect from the SRC and students at the UPNG Forum Square – a demand he refused.

The SRC put last week Friday as the dead line where they threatened a mass withdrawal for this academic year if the PM refused to step down.

This week the SRC extended the class boycott for another week which will see our local students stay out of classes as well.

Meanwhile a local lawyer currently working in PNG has advised the local students to stay out of the PNG local politics.

He said PNG politics is an internal matter and Solomon Islands students studying at various universities in PNG should stay out of it.
