Governor open to suggestions


HELA Governor Philip Undialu has called on the people, especially the elites, to suggest ways to develop the province.
“Since the declaration and formation of the government, the hectic part is over. Now it’s time to work,” he said.
Undialu appealed to the Hela people, professionals in various fields, churches, youths and women to submit policy alternatives to his office or the administrator’s.
He urged those on Facebook to offer solutions or suggest policy alternatives rather than making personal attacks against each other.
“Talk is cheap but doing it yourself is quite a mammoth task,” Undialu said.
“We need positive thinking and contributions to develop
“I need written contributions on law and order, health, education, roads and bridges, agriculture, culture and tourism, landowner issues such as clan vetting, management of equity and royalty, the 4.27 per cent  Kroton equity, business development, downstream processing of gas, rural electrification, youths, women, churches, sports development, housing, SME and other development issues.
The first provincial executive council assembly, under his leadership, will be held next month.
It is expected that a think-tank group comprising Hela elites will be formed.
“Most of the issues and challenges we face today were created by Hela and we all will find solutions and move the province forward,” he said.
He will also ask the Hela Council of Churches to organise a Hela Unity and Reconciliation Forum.
He said politics and issues would be dealt with by Tari-Pori MP James Marape, Komo-Margarima MP Manasseh Makiba and Koroba-Lake Kopiago MP Petrus Thomas.
