Every member of the USP community – staff, students, parents, alumni and sponsors should remember, during this coming election, the damage that the FijiFirst Government has done to USP.
National Federation Party Leader, Professor Biman Prasad has made this comment as he made a personal pledge that when in government, Fiji will return to being a sound and reliable member and friend of USP which honours its promises.
He says they will work with the USP Council and regional governments to put right the damage that the FijiFirst Government has done because only with USP can Fiji succeed.
Professor Prasad says he is a product of USP and a long-term USP staff member.
He says no institution is closer to his heart than USP and no institution is more important to Fiji.
The NFP Leader further says the cruel and heartless government is ready to sacrifice USP for its own selfish and egotistical purposes by withholding almost $80 million in grants.
He says everybody knows who is right and who is wrong in the USP saga as there have been many inquiries and reviews, and each time it is the university that has been proved right and the government that has been proved wrong.
Professor Prasad says the government has deported the Vice-Chancellor Professor Pal Ahluwalia. He says it has withheld close to $80 million in grants and destroyed the university’s finances and threatened the education of Fiji’s own USP students but it will never admit it is wrong.
He says education is the key to Fiji’s prosperity and USP is not only Fiji’s but the entire South Pacific’s peak educational institution.
