Simbu Teachers College

Governor concerned with college appointments

Governor Michael Bogai Dua told media recently of his dissatisfaction over the appointment of the principal for Simbu Teachers College, and before that, the setup of its board of governors.

He said these appointments were an abuse of the Education Act where it says the agency, in this case the provincial government, has the power to nominate principals and deputies and a chair of the governing council.

The Simbu Governor said it is a manipulation of a government institution and is not in the best interest of the people of Simbu.
