 A NEW association called the Yangoru-Sausia Professional Network has been formed and professionals are urged to join to lend a hand to their MP Richard Maru.

Interim chairperson Menser Wagun said development was everyone’s business and it was high time elites from East Sepik did something for their people at home.

“There is a need for an association of professionals of the electorate so that we can support MP Richard Maru’s work,” she said.

“The history of the electorate clearly shows that it has lost much over the last 40 years and that it is necessary now for a mass mobilisation of intellectual capital to complement the leadership enthusiasm and energy being displayed by the MP. 

“This is so that together we are able to close the gaps of development that have been ignored for far, far too long.

“We have four local level governments in our electorate and a good number of us have met with our MP to basically discuss how we can mobilise and also form a working committee to back the MP.

“On Saturday, May 25 a general assembly of people from the electorate will meet at the Dynasty Restaurant at Vision City in Port Moresby to agree and adopt a constitution to help guide them with any assistance they provide.

“Entry fee will be K200, of which K100 will be membership, and we want all our professionals and interested individuals to attend so that we can get going straight away and not wait for things to happen first and then we react. Let’s move now so we can see more development.”
