 DEI district in Western Highlands will be a model district in the country in development and services delivery, district administrator Steven Korowa said last week in Port Moresby.

He said this after signing a landmark agreement between the Dei district administration and Hardware Haus senior management to construct dormitories and classrooms for all schools in the district.

“Education infrastructure improvement is the key component in the education sector to house the students and teachers to carry out their normal routine,” he said.

Korowa said Hardware Haus would construct one or two double-storey and double classrooms in all primary and secondary schools in the district.

Dei MP Wesley Nukundj said as a first time MP for the district, he wanted to make sure that services were delivered to the people.

Nukundj said since taking office and working for eleven months, he ensured that there were changes taking place in the electorate.

He said district services improvement programme funds for education is K2 million annually but he spent well over K6.4 million while he had spent over K5 million on road infrastructure.
