Controversial Goroka market to be built: Soso

The controversial Goroka Market will be rebuilt early next year, says Eastern Highlands Governor Julie Soso.

She said with the support of the Prime Minister, the much delayed market will be built so that her people can sell and buy their local produce.

"The much anticipated Goroka market will be constructed. The money has been parked in the trust account and it's there,” said Soso.

“It will be delivered early next year with the support of Prime Minister Peter O'Neill."

The Governor said her people need a decent market to trade; a market that is long overdue.

She has also invested in other areas of importance, like education.

"This is to ensure the children in the province excel in education and further develop their Province after completion of the school," she said.

Soso made the remarks during an end-of-year parade at Independence Park in Goroka on Friday.

The parade was also for the launching of the renovated Goroka Police Station.
