Parkop’s Response on Buai Ban Petition by Governor Haoda

Vehicles owned by people from Central Province will not be checked at the Laloki check point.


This is one of the immediate responses to a petition presented by Central Province Governor Kila Hoada in parliament recently.

This was revealed by NCD Governor Powes Parkop.


The National Capital District Commission and the Central Provincial Government have come up with a number of initiatives to relax the ban on buai for Central Province.


A dialogue between the two governments has started, following the petition by Central Province Governor Kila Haoda for the lifting of the buai ban.


 Vehicle owners from Central have been asked to supply vehicle registration information to NCDC.


Once that is in place, these vehicles will not be checked at the check point.


NCD Governor Powes Parkop challenged all these vehicle owners to maintain trust by respecting the ban in place.


Other initiatives include Central Province managing the 2 wholesale buai markets outside Port Moresby, and NCD police not to intrude into Central Province for buai ban operations.


Governor Parkop says he will not allow the city to go back to its pre ban status but find win -win solutions for both NCD and Central Province.


If vehicle owners from Central are found smuggling buai, into the city, the exemption will be revoked.
