MPs urged to acquitt funding


PARLIAMENTRIANS who have not acquitted their service improvement programme funds are urged to do so immediately.
Aihi Vaki, the deputy programme and implementation director with the Office of Rural Development, said this when he accepting the 2015 acquittals for the Anglimp-South Waghi district of Jiwaka.
Vaki said it was incumbent upon every MP to furnish acquittals and they have to do so immediately.
He said those MPs who were yet to acquit their district service improvement programme (DSIP) funds and provincial service improvement programme (PSIP) funds must do them as soon as possible.
He said Anglimp-South Waghi MP Joe Koim and his district staff have been able to do their acquittals and present them.
“This is a challenge I’m giving to other MPs to also be quick to present theirs,” he said.
“We do not have time left and I’m calling on the other MPs to fast track in their acquittals.”
Vaki thanked Koim and his district staff for presenting the acquittal on time and expressed satisfaction with some important programmes of the district like its micro-finance credit scheme, infrastructure projects and its rural housing scheme which have been making a lot of difference in the lives of the people.
Meanwhile, Koim explained that these three programmes were pillars of his development agenda for this term.
“By this Christmas, we will celebrate the opening of the road linking the remote Kambia area to the outside world through a road from Yobadibol in Gumine, Cimbu, to Mt Au in Jiwaka,” Koim said, adding that it is a goodnews for the kambia people.
