Vice Chancellor of SINU, Dr. Glynn Galo welcomed the Parliamentary team, especially the Chairman of the EHRTC, Hon. Nestor Giro.

In his briefing, Hon, Giro conveyed to both tertiary institutions that purpose of the visit is to see what supporting these institutions are getting to provide educational here in the country.

The Committee Chairman also noted the challenges these institutions are facing. As part of the Committees mandate to make observations and investigation on matters of national education endeavor; this visit is part of the EHRTC Committees annual work plan and intention to produce a report to relevant stakeholders on these observations.

The Chairman highlighted that the Committee wishes to make tangible recommendations to the legislature on measures that can enhance their operations.

The Chairman acknowledged to both tertiary institutions that their issues are prevalent and is caused by many other factors besides socio-economical backgrounds of most of our students.

It was noted that providing local scholarships to students attending to both Institutions alone is not sufficient to substantiate their operations given the enrollment density each year.

Both Institution are enrolling 4000 plus student for this year alone and are expecting the numbers to increase in the years to come.

As such it is vital to the Committee to constructing such cordial relationship with our educational service providers can ensure that accountability and representation of the legislature is prudent.
