New campus to ease burden

COMMISSIONER Northern Lieutenant Colonel Ilai Moceica has assured that the Fiji National University's new campus in Labasa will be built after the lease agreement is finalised between landowners and the university management this year.

This, he said, would allow students in the north to study from the comforts of their homes instead of travelling to Suva and incurring exorbitant costs.

He gave the assurance during the university's annual open day at the Labasa campus on Friday.

"The university's focus has led to the acquisition of the 40-acre land in Naiyaca Subdivision and arrangements are still in progress for the new Labasa campus," Lt-Col Moceica said.

"The Government is fully supporting the university and it will assist in whatever way possible to ensure it is able to meet its aims and objectives.

"With the new campus here in the north, students will be able to learn in a serene and composed environment because the university aims to provide quality and affordable education.

"Parents won't struggle to send their children to Suva for higher education since Fiji's very own national university is at their door steps," he said.

Lt-Col Moceica however encouraged students to study hard and develop the north in a positive way.

"Work hard and achieve something then upgrade the standard of living in the Northern Division," he said.
