Peter O’Neill building opened in Wabag

The K10 million new administration building for Enga Teachers College has been named after Prime Minister Peter O’Neill.

It was opened last Friday by Public Service Minister Sir Puka Temu, on behalf of the prime minister, at Iraleya Village, outside Wabag Town.   

“The PM cannot come to open the building because it’s a tradition as the building is named after him and also Parliament is sitting,” Sir Puka said.  

He also spoke on the importance of education, which is a key government policy and in line with the country’s Vision 2050.  

Enga Governor Sir Peter Ipatas, during the occasion, said it was fitting to name the new double-storey building after the PM because his government counter-funded the project.

The provincial and national government contributed K5 million each for the construction of the building.

The Institute of Business Studies also operates out of the college, which has been training teachers in the last six years.
