50 self-sponsored University of Papua New Guinea students in Madang are set to return to Port Moresby, thanks to Madang MP Nixon Duban.

Duban, who is also the Petroleum and Energy Minister, today met with the UPNG and Divine Word University Madang students and presented them cheques of K50,000 and K10,000 respectively.

“The K10,000 was for the DWU Madang Students Association to host their Madang Day later this year,” UPNG Madang student Len-Desiree Mandie told Loop PNG.

“Before the presentation there was a small reconciliation ceremony between the UPNG MSA and Mr Duban,” said Mandie.

“The UPNG MSA apologised to Mr Duban for their actions and some words that were spoken during the awareness period in May. And they expressed their gratitude to him for showing support and helping the students despite what happened between them during the awareness.”

The UPNG MSA presented a bilum and a live pig to Duban to show their respect and prove how sorry they were.

Since priority was given to Madang district, the first 18 students there received their tickets. They will be flying out starting Tuesday morning.

The presentation and reconciliation ceremony was held at the DWU Kibung Area.
