UOG yet to receive K8m government commitment

As per the National Executive Council decision in 2016, the total recovery cost for the three public universities that were affected by conflict and protest in 2016 was about K63 million.

In the breakup, the PNG University of Technology was allocated K40m, University of PNG K12m, Office of Higher Education K3m and UOG K8.

So far, UPNG and Unitech have received some of the funding however UOG is yet to receive its K8m.

UOG Vice-Chancellor, Professor Musawe Sinebare and Chancellor Joseph Sukwianomb are in Port Moresby to follow up on the government’s commitment.
