 PEOPLE must put their land to good use and earn a living from it, says Northern provincial police commander Victor Isouve.

He said it could contribute to addressing lawlessness  in the country.

“Our people should work on their land to make a living,” he said.

He said cultivating the land for cash crops or to raise livestock could help people earn an honest living in their communities.

“Our people should go to government offices to get cocoa or palm oil seedlings to plant on their land,” Isouve said.

“People should not think that jobs can be found only in offices.” 

He also appealed to Northern people to stop using marijuana and home-brew, known as eveka.

“Our people must look after themselves,” he said.

Meanwhile, Isouve appealed to people crossing the Girua bridge to exercise caution.
