THERE was jubilation at Nadzab airport yesterday afternoon as exiled Unitech vice-chancellor Dr Albert Schram arrived to a big welcome by Unitech students.
Students travelled in truckloads from their campus to the Nadzab airport to welcome Dr Schram with what they described as ‘PNG Style’ welcome as they carried him through the crowd.
Members of the Students Representative Council were in Port Moresby this week to receive the vice chancellor who flew in from Cairns and they returned with him to Lae.
There was a huge welcome for him at the Unitech campus.
Dr Schram has been living in Australia for the past two years as he waited for the PNG government to consider his case after the then Unitech council sacked him and he was deported from the country.
The case has been in and out of court since, with Chancellor Ralph Saulep this week lodging a legal challenge to last week’s decision by the government to reaffirm Dr Schram and to reappoint the Nagora Bogan university council.
