STUDENTS from Angoram, East Sepik, studying at the University of Technology have threatened to push for the separation of their district from ESP to be an additional district of Enga province because of poor attention from Sepik, MPs, towards investing in education and human resource.
Robert Sengi, a student leader, made this call in Lae when raising the plight of East Sepik students, especially from Angoram, studying in tertiary institutions around the country.
Sengi, who hails from Arugunum village, along the head waters of the Sepik river, said from their own findings most of the 300 plus East Sepik students at Unitech are not from secondary schools in their province but got into university from schools from other provinces.
Sengi said Angoram is neighbour to Kompiam-Ambum district in Enga and the good reputation of Governor Peter Ipatas in prioritising education above all other sectors is more appealing to the Angoram students. He said the human resources development is very important and as future leaders, the students were neglected for too long. He is appealing for support from local MP Charlie Waipo and Governor, Grand Chief, Sir Michael Somare to assist.
“We are already talking about breaking away and joining up with Enga if this trend of ignorance from East Sepik leaders continue,” Sengi said.
