K1 million to be given to Oro learning centre

The Eastern Papua Centre for Higher Education (EPCHE) in Northern Province will be receiving K1 million to begin its academic year in 2017.

The centre which is a former campus of the University of Natural Resources and Environment (UNRE) will receive the funding promised to it.

Minister for Higher Education, Research and Technology, Malakai Tabar, said this to Ijivitari MP, David Arore, when queried about the funds and if the institution would be ready by next year.

“My Secretary has given instruction to the Vice Chancellor of UNRE to return the funds that were parked under UNRE to transfer it to the department then the department will look at allocating that K1 million to Oro Campus,” said Tabar.

He further stated that enrollments will begin with national selections to be done later this month.
