No funds dispensed

Prime Minister James Marape said construction on the National Unity Pillar has not begun yet and no funds have been dispensed yet, even though approved by Government.

He said the plans for the pillar have been discussed for the last two-three years, and project efforts will be led by the Council of Churches and the Body of Christ.

The National Unity Pillar will be constructed under a five-year-program and will stand directly opposite the Parliament House along the Waigani Drive.

Prime Minister announced plans for the 200-meter high structure, on the eve of National Prayer Day.
