Western Highlands Province Governor, Paias Wingti and Mul-Baiyer MP, Koi Trappe, announced last Friday that they will focus more on Education in the Province.
The announcement was made at the swearing in ceremony of the Mul-Baiyer Lumusa District Development Authority members.
Governor Wingti and Mr Trappe said they are working tirelessly to raise the level of education in the Province.
Mul-Baiyer Lumusa MP, Koi Trappe has already distributed uniforms to all the schools in the electorate last year, as a way of motivating students to be neat to attend classes.
Trappe said education is one of his major pillars for development.
Most of the District Development Improvement Program funds will be used to build teachers houses and provide something he had already started in the last five years.
Other services that Trappe focused more on in the last five years were road, bridges and infrastructure projects, including addressing law and order in the district.
Meanwhile, Governor Wingti say it is his first time to win the Elections for the second term consecutively as Governor for Western Highlands.
Wingti said he had greater visions for education in the Province, but he never had the time to fully implement it.
He said in his last term; he started the Australian Southern Cross University campus in Mt Hagen which will be open for enrolment next year.
For this term Governor Wingti will spend his first 3 years in the Province to fix education.
Board Members were told to report to the Provincial Education Department any ill-behaviours by teachers. Meanwhile, the new DDA board members of Mul-Baiyer Lumusa were told to work closely with the CEO, Mark Kamjua and the local MP to ensure education projects in the district are well serviced.
