Enga received over K100m this year, reveals Abel

The Enga Provincial Government received over K100 million in this year’s National Budget for infrastructure development.

This was revealed by National Planning and Monitoring Minister Charles Abel recently during the launching of PNG Power line to Tsak valley.

He said the funding allocated to Enga, under the 2015 budget, was to help build the teachers’ college, nursing school and the new hospital projects.

“The Government is doing this because it has trust and confidence in the Enga Provincial Government under the leadership of Sir Peter Ipatas’ ability to deliver important projects,” Minister Abel said.

“If there is any province that deserves to be praised for implementing important government programs, Enga Province will surely have my vote of trust and confidence.”

The Minister praised the provincial government in successfully implementing important government programs towards realising the targets of vision 2050.

The Minister said he was impressed with the province for establishing three important learning institutions within a space of five years. Those include the Enga Teachers College, Institute of Business Studies (Enga campus) and Enga College of Nursing.

Governor Sir Peter thanked the minister and the Government for acknowledging his province’s contribution towards nation building.
