A reconciliation ceremony over the weekend between the Gulf Provincial government and Baimuru district has now opened the door to services for the 15 thousand plus people.
Baimuru district is in the Kikori electorate of the Gulf Province. Hundreds gathered on Saturday at the Baimuru district station to welcome the dignitaries.
The people were so excited to have the delegation on the ground, as their presence signified the arrival of vital services.
Governor, Havila Kavo, and local MP, Mark Maipakai, also the Labor Minister, reconciled with the people at the Baimuru station.
This was a significant day as the district had missed out on vital services such as health and education for the past 10 years.
The province had suffered much following the political in fight between the leaders in 2010.
The reconciliation ceremony hosted by the people for their leaders was a desperate call for services to be returned to them.
The airstrip was finally opened on the day and also the ground breaking ceremony took place for district administration complex valued at K3.1 million.
The office was burnt down in late 2009 by arsonists.
Other government institutions such as the police suffered the consequences, as they all operated from the building.
The district administration is currently operating out of Kerema town and at times from Waigani.
Once completed, the administration will look at refurbishing the primary school and health center which are both currently in appalling states.
The governor also committed K3million to reopen the fish plant and improve the unemployment rate in the district and province.
3rd term MP and Minister for Labor Mark Maipakai called on his people to be serious about development and work closely with him to change the district for the better.
