Cabinet Notes: The Cabinet received an update on the CMU students and the payments made by the Government to the students and to the tertiary institution.

The Head of the Port indicated that students were paid their stipends despite the reduction in revenue by the Port Authority; the initiative was negotiated by the Port Authority in collaboration with the Central Government.

The Treasury has paid what is owed under the agreement.

However, a new management at CMU has unilaterally changed that agreement, requiring fresh negotiations.

The students have been registered while a reconciliation continues.

  1. The Cabinet need to keep those who they have entrusted to carry out their policy accuntable. This thing is not one that should have reached the level off Cabinet. A simple adminstrative issue that needed to be carried out by those in authority.
    When people are not held accountable Cabinet will continue to do their work while they remain in positions and get paid. If there were issues they should have brought these issues to Cabinets or the minister responsible for that ministry. And you have entire boards overseeing stautory and state owned bodies. And these boardmembers collecting every month their board fees.
    I once ask the PM already, if he is going to solve all the problems that comes up at these companies. why then have a board. If I give a GM or a board authority its because I do not feel I should micro manage. And they should take up their responsibility. That’s what they are paid for. They only like to show their faces when things are good.
