Councillor asks MP to seal roads in his ward

Highlands

AN 82-year-old man from rural Piambil village in Imbonggu, Southern Highlands, has travelled to Port Moresby to deliver a message from his people to their district MP and Minister for Higher Education Research Science and Technology Pila Niningi.
Kumble Tende Puringi, who is also a village councillor for the Kalipine council ward, had one request for their MP and that was to have the road network in his council ward sealed.
“This will help us immensely. For the past 35 years your people have stood by you and voted for you,” he said.
“It is only fitting that you seal the road so that your people can have better access to government services.
“Previous MPs have neglected to bring services to our people and it is my hope that you will be the change for your people.”
Niningi thanked Puringi for his words of wisdom and encouragement and said roads, health facilities and other vital government services were top priorities in his district development plan.
He vowed to work with partners and other stakeholders to deliver basic services.
Niningi told Puringi that he would be travelling to the district this week to present a fully-kitted ambulance to the Buyebi Health Centre and open the newly refurbished district headquarters.
He thanked the National Gaming Control Board and its chief executive Imelda Argon for stepping in to help fund the refurbishment of district headquarters.
The ambulance will be presented tomorrow at Buyebi Health Centre while the nrefurbished district headquarters will officially open on Friday.
