Tambul-Nebilyer students attending the University of Papua New Guinea (UPNG) are still waiting for their local MP Hon. Benjamin Poponawa to assist them with airline ticket to travel home.
The Tambul-Nebilyer Students Associations at UPNG, an affiliated student body to the UPNG Students Represented Council (UPNG SRC) and sub-association to the Western Highlands Students Union at UPNG have waited for almost a month now after they have requested their MP and Minister for Labour and Industrial Relations Hon. Benjamin Poponawa to assist with airline tickets just like the rest of the students being assisted by their respective MPs.
The students have been living in Port Moresby outside of campus for a long time now with friends and relatives and they needed repatriation as soon as possible.
Registered Students have already submitted their names to the Minister’s office and are now patiently waiting for the tickets to be purchased and distributed.
A source who wish to remain anonymous have confirmed that the tickets were purchased and should be ready by tomorrow (28/07/2016) for distribution. Students are expected to leave Port Moresby for Mt. Hagen by this Friday or weekend.
