The University of Goroka (UOG) is taking measures to ensure a trouble free academic year in 2017 by introducing an oath of affirmation which students will have to sign, The National (January 20) reports.

In a press conference yesterday at the Department of Higher Education, Research, Science and Technology (DHERST) conference area, UOG Vice Chancellor (VC), Professor Musawe Sinebare, said the oath was a new concept that they were introducing to moderate student behavior and restore respect and order in the university.

He said they [students] must respect the laws of the country, and the rules and regulations of the university.

“The oath is developed in the spirit of moderating and managing their behavior.”

Professor Sinebare also said the university was optimistic that the government would deliver on its promised funding to start the academic year.

The university’s semester begins next month.
