BILLBOARDS have been put up in locations in Port Moresby to warn people about the betel nuts ban which will be effective from Friday.
The National Capital District Commission has engaged contractor Bomalyal to erect billboards in vstrategic locations in the city.
The billboards will carry the message of the buai ban in the city and the associated penalties.
Each billboard costs K8,000.
Bomalyal director Tom Bomai is appealing to organisations and business houses to support the initiative of NCD Governor Powes Parkop by sponsoring a billboard for K8,000.
The contractor will erect billboards at 9-Mile, 7-Mile, 4-Mile, downtown Port Moresby, Waigani and Gerehu.
Bomai said if funding allowed it, they would erect more billboards in the city’s suburbs and settlements.
Parkop had signed the gazetted notice for the ban to be implemented and its penalties be enforced from Nov 1.
