A COMPANY has set up a project in Lae city to survey youths and help authorities address lawlessness in the city.
The Research and Education Consultancy Services for Development’s Nu’munama Point Six launched its youth research and survey
project at the Lutheran Church in Lae last weekend.
Owner of Nu’munama Point Six Fred Kosu said the firm planned to work with the Morobe provincial government, Lae MP Loujaya Kouza, Lae City Council and Lae police to address lawlessness in the city.
Research and survey consultants, including Kabwum MP Bob Dadae, Koim Leahy and the Lord Mayor of Lae who attended the launching were reminded that research was an important prerequisite to development.
Kosu challenged them to be honest in their survey exercise.
“If we want to effectively address law and order problems in Lae City, we cannot sit in the office. We must go out and interview every youth so that reliable data is collected to address the socio-economic issues and problems affecting Lae, including lawlessness,” he said.
Dadae said they would support the company in the city youth survey.
