An elderly woman of Segoro Village, in East Sepik Province is happy about the changes taking place in the Yangoru-Saussia Electorate.
EMTV caught up with Margaret Bandu who openly expressed her happiness.
After years of struggle, Mrs Bandu told EMTV News that she has finally seen and felt the changes, attributing it to good leadership.
“I grew up in this village all of my life. We have now experienced change, unlike in the past. Services like good road links, health, education, electricity supply and the many more that are expected to come.”
Bandu thanked local MP, Richard Maru, for his leadership that has brought change, in the way things are managed.
For so long, mothers like Cathy Wafi have suffered, carrying their garden produce walking long hours to the main road to access vehicles. It’s now a thing of the past as they can access vehicles straight from their doorsteps.
“With the good road link, it makes us happy. And we are so thankful for Mr Maru, that under his leadership, services are reaching the marginalised,” she said.
Elementary teacher, Linda Huira, said that few leaders like Richard Maru are hard to find in Papua New Guinea and appealed to the people to think about such leaders when it comes to elections.
“We the people of Yangoru-Saussia, if we want to see the many changes, we have to vote for leaders like Richard Maru, so that we bring in more development.”
Ward 20 Council President, Mathew Hogori, said the Munji Hambuke Road is an economic link.
Villagers thanked their MP, Richard Maru for his leadership, to changes now experienced in the Yangoru-Saussia Electorate.
