Better use of knowledge promoted to beat ‘corrupt’ system

Without knowledge, a nation cannot prosper, says the acting Vice-Chancellor of the University of Papua New Guinea, Professor Vincent Malaibe.
“We need to create a knowledge-based society in Papua New Guinea where everyone can contribute something to the development of this country,” he said.
He stressed during the International Training Institute graduation in Port Moresby on Thursday the importance of acquiring knowledge and using it for the right purpose.
“Knowledge can be good or bad depending on how you use it,” Malaibe said.
Daniel Biti, a council member of the Certified Practising Accountants of PNG, urged the graduates to serve to others.
“Don’t use your knowledge for personal gain but for service,” Biti said.
“The system is corrupt and the country is corrupt because educated people are corrupt.”
He said their success in the field depended on their character.
“Your qualification will not get you there. Opportunities out there are slim. Your character will get you there,” he said.
The institute graduated 416 students with certificates and diplomas in accounting, business, sales, human resource management, computing, and information technology.
