It is not always normal that a politician gets on a PMV bus to go to work. But this morning, it was different in Lae.
Morobe Governor Kelly Naru, raised a lot of heads and eyebrows of the people when he got on the PMV bus and went to work.
However, in the bus, he told the excited passengers that, Morobe Province is one of the provinces in PNG that is not easy to administer.
Morobe Kelly Naru has maintained his image as the servant for the people. This morning he got on a PMV bus and went to work, but he chose the short ride between Eriku and Lae’s Top Town, as an opportunity to talk about some of the issues, that are usually discussed only in the Tutumang, the provincial government house.
But for the man who holds the public office to one of the biggest Provinces in the country, he says it is not an easy task.
He told the passengers that Morobe is one of the provinces in Papua New Guinea, that isn’t always easy to govern.
Amongst the things he talked about, Governor Naru brought up the issue of the poorer state of the Lae roads, and the large influx of cheap imported cars in Lae City.
In 2013, more than 300 used vehicles landed at the Lae main wharf, almost half of them are used vehicles.
Governor Naru says he will formerly write to the National Government to seek their permission, to impose high tariff to discourage large influx of imported vehicles that comes into Lae.
While Lae City is slowly been transformed into an economic hub of PNG, Governor Naru says there is still a lot of work to do.
