NCD Governor Powes Parkop held a press conference at City Hall this morning to give an update ofthe buai ban inthe nation’s capital.
Mr Parkop’says, despitethe ban being imposed on October 1stthere is great evidence of excessive trading, selling, spitting and disposal of betelnut rubbish insidethe city’s perimeter.
After 2 months of imposingthe buai ban inthe city, NCD Governor Powes Parkop has seen that reliable stakeholders andthe public have not fully compllied.
Mr Parkop’said,the majority of city residents were skeptical withthe outcome and opposedthe idea.
However Governor Parkop was pleased with most residents and did not blame anyone but admitted thatthe ban was not enforced properly.
Mr Parkop’said, with this assessment done, a total ban will be imposed effectively comes 1st January 2014.
Meanwhile, Mr Parkop’says,the previous ban was hampered withthe late producing of infringement notice books, slow construction of allocated markets andthe setting-up ofthe Coordinating Centre.
Governor Parkop also made it clear that as of 1st January, all current temporary markets at Lareva, Gerehu, 6mile, Sabama and Hanuabada will be closed.
Meanwhile newly appointed NCD Beai Ben Controller Honk Kiap says, all issued passes to individuals to transport buai in and out ofthe city will cease as of today.
Mr Kiap echoed that both police and civilian enforcement will be stationed in prime locations to apprehend law breakers.
