​Juffa, Bird praise govt’s plan

East Sepik Governor Allan Bird and Northern Governor Gary Juffa have praised the Government’s 100-Day Economic Stimulus Plan.

In a media conference yesterday with the Deputy Prime Minister and Treasurer Charles Abel, the Governors said the plan is achievable and can be implemented in a coercive manner.

Bird said Abel’s idea in gauging the views of governors on certain issues in the province is good for the governance of the country.

He said governors have a clear view of what’s happening in the province and can articulate better on issues.

With the 100-Day Economic Stimulus Plan, Bird said although provinces have issues, many of them have never been given consideration.

The 100-day plan has enabled governors to bring those issues to the Government through the acting Prime Minister and Treasurer.

He added that the government must invest more into agriculture in order to diversify the economy; all of the Government’s plans will always point to agriculture.

Meanwhile, Governor Juffa share the same sentiments and also hailed Abel for getting their views in regards to the 100-Day Economic Stimulus Plan.

He said such interactions by senior government ministers is good for the country and can find solutions to the country’s issues.

The Government’s 100-Day Economic Stimulus Plan reaches its 27th day today.

Abel said the government will be giving an update every 25 days.
