DEAR EDITOR, may I contribute to this paper concerning the late payment of USP Student’s Allowances studying in Fiji this year 2018.
As an affected student, it has come to my attention of concern that late payment of Allowance is a human threat for many of us (Solomon Islands students) who are studying in various universities here in Fiji this year 2018.
As a victim, I am therefore writing this letter to urge the responsible ministry, Ministry of Education and Human Resource Development (MEHRD) to seriously looking into this matter and address this ongoing problem that has been faced many years.
I knew Solomon Islands Government sent us here for a purpose of acquiring and enhancing higher level of education so that in return, each one helps in rebuilding our beloved country Solomon Islands.
Therefore I asked the Solomon Islands government to treat each citizen with respect and fairness as what it did for other students in other universities around the globe.
Further, I particularly welcome the support being offered to us since day one, in the manner of facilitating us to this far but our wellbeing has to be a concern as we are in a foreign land.
I wholeheartedly wish the Prime Minister and his Government in cooperation with Ministry of Education and Human Resource Development (MEHRD) to work in hand to hand to resolve and move things forward so that we students receive our allowances in time and heads-down with our study.
