PM’s directives not followed on NHC

Despite a directive by Prime Minister Peter O’Neill to put on hold the sale and eviction of National Housing Commission tenants’ it still continues to happen.

The Prime Minister in last Parliament said sale and evictions must stop throughout the country until an investigation is completed and a report tabled in the November sitting.

Yesterday the Post-Courier report of eviction of a 94 year old man from his Hohola home in Port Moresby saw the Housing Minister Paul Isikiel personally intervening and Oisa Evoa moving back to his home of 50 years after he had been evicted by police and a new owner last Tuesday.

When contatced by Loop PNG for comments, Prime Minister O’Neill declined and told the newsroom that he will release a statement today on housing.
