Rousing welcome for Yama

A rousing welcome was extended to Madang Governor Peter Yama yesterday afternoon.

Madang residents gathered at the Madang airport as Yama touched down at 5pm in an Air Niugini F100 aircraft.

As a sign of respect, he was carried straight from the plane to his waiting vehicle.

Vehicles then convoyed with Governor Yama to the provincial headquarters to another waiting crowd as he went ahead and addressed his people.

This follows his recent reinstatement by the Supreme Court as Governor after the National Court ordered a recount.

The Supreme Court dismissed the orders of the National Court on the grounds that petitioners James Yali and Jerry Singirok both asked for different matters.

However, the Supreme Court will be reviewing this decision at a later date but ordered that Yama be reinstated and continue to serve the people of Madang.
