Mass withdrawal

UPNG calls on Mellam to prove his point

In a circular released last Friday, vice-chancellor Professor Mellam said: “If students absent themselves for more than two weeks then their continuation… becomes untenable after Friday, May 13, 2016.”

The students haven’t been to class for two weeks now. Since last Monday they have been boycotting classes, calling on Prime Minister Peter O’Neill to step aside and be investigated.

A mass withdrawal will ensue if the administration meets certain conditions set by the students.
