A YOUNG and educated youth leader is determined to see his people have access to better primary health care services in his district.
Chairman of the proposed Rehabilitation and Renovation of Unda Health Centre, in Minamb Valley, Wapenamanda district, Enga, Paul Arutu has challenged his people to stop asking for handouts from the MP and engage in sustainable community projects that would benefit the community.
Arutu said the people of Wapenamanda had a new leadership in a vibrant, intellectual MP who had connections.
“What does it take for Wapenamanda to appreciate true leadership, and what more can we expect from this man when he showed us that he can lead us into prosperity with the right attitude and qualities?” Arutu said.
Wapenamanda local level government president Misech Semai said when Arutu approached him for his consent on the proposed project, he signed the documents without hesitation and gave his blessing for counter-funding and assistance.
He said that was because he believed the project would have a direct and lasting impact on the lives of the 30,000 people of the Minamb Valley.
