Meanwhile, Aceh Besar Regent Mawardi Ali said, the Aceh Besar Government strongly supported the establishment of the Unsyiah II Campus. In fact, Mawardi has held a meeting with elements of the Muspika Aceh Besar for the planned development on this 1,500 hectare land.
"The principle is that we are very supportive. Because this HGU land seems to be abandoned. So if the campus is very good for development," said Mawardi.
Aceh Besar District Government has also provided recommendations and rearranged spatial planning in the area. Where there should not be any activity in this area, so that it can really be used as an education area.
"So we are closed to other spaces, such as for excavation C or industrial mining. All of that here is not allowed. Because we have agreed that this is an Unsyiah education area, "he said.
Mawardi said, so far the education sector is a sector that is highly prioritized by the District Government of Aceh Besar. So, he hopes that the establishment of this campus will not only benefit Aceh Besar, but also for Aceh Province and Indonesia as a whole. For this reason, he invited all components of the community to support the plan to establish this campus. Providing facilities so that access to education can run well. (PR Unsyiah / ib)
