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.
