Sir J kicks off work in Namatanai

GOVERNOR Rt. Hon. Sir Julius Chan spent time yesterday with people at his Huris Village, sharing government policies in 2011 Provincial Budget and distributed small funds for Sunday school, water tanks and sports/musical instruments and discussed problems with teams distributing Old and Disabled pensions.
He also accepted invitation from the Member for Namatanai, Byron Chan, to join him on Sunday 02 January 2011 and witness the Member present a new truck to the Kudukudu village community. 

Meanwhile Sir Julius condemned the wastage and unfinished Moronai and Punam bridges.   In a very strongly worded letter to the Provincial Administrator Simeon Malai and Deputy Veronica Jigede, he described ill treatment and sufferings of his people of Susurunga, Konomala and Lak having to overnight in heavy rain because swollen Punam river made crossing impossible. 

Sir Julius went further to condemn wastage and abuse of over K 1.2 million allocated to Provincial Works for two bridges but Works failed to even complete Moronai alone. 
Sir Julius said Provincial Government will no longer contract Works and would prefer them out of the Province for poor work and poor selection of contractors in the Boluminski highway sealing. 

If Chairman of Lands (Appointed Youth Representative) is ready, Sir Julius will join him to fulfill a longstanding commitment by late former Governor, Paul Tohian to add a small sum of money to willing landowners who sold land for Lipek Primary School and Sub-Health Centre. 

Next Wednesday 05 January the Governor, joined by the Catholic Bishop, the Member for Namatanai, Byron Chan, Tony Drett from Lands and the Namatanai District Administrator will attend ceremony marking formal handover by SIR J and family of over 28 ha piece of land at Amfar to the Catholic Church on Tanga for the new Tanir high school. 

Sir J will head to Kavieng and on to Port Moresby on 08th January for recall of Parliament to elect the new Governor General. 

For New Year 2011 the Governor reiterated “It’s the year of implementation and I call on all New Irelanders to work harder with self reliance and faith in our own abilities to move New Ireland step closer to Autonomy and greater sharing of benefits in our resources exploit.” 

“It’s also time I give my own backyard a cleanup.”   Susurunga roads and bridges will be given priority upgrade immediately and he called on his people to sacrifice old tree crops for good saying let’s do it together.”
