Napanapa Landowners To Be Compensated

Share the News
The Napanapa landowners association is one group on the state’s priority list of landowners to be compensated this year.

The 17 plus incorporated land groups of the Mavara clan in Koita, for the first time will be compensated for their land on which the Napanapa Oil Refinery is situated.


A lump sum of K286 million has been set aside by the state for this group.


After a long court battle for the chairmanship position, the national court had ordered the Registrar of Companies to convene a meeting today at the Indoor Sports Complex.


However, due to renovation works, the meeting was moved to the Institute of Public Administration.


Also, it was difficult for the legal teams from respective parties to get the people work in unison to solve this matter.


There has been ongoing in fighting for the chairmanship position causing the legal battle and disharmony amongst the 17 plus ILGs.


A sum of K286 million has been set aside by the state to pay the landowners of the Napanapa Oil Refinery. This is the first payment for landowners since the refinery was established.


The interim chairman is adamant that he is the right person to run the affairs of this lump sum for his people.


The Registrar of Companies advised the people to stop arguing and fighting each other, and rather sit together and solve the matter in a Melanesian way.


He said the parties should come up with one company under the association and incorporate all the ILGs involved in it so that everyone benefits from this lump sum.
