Yama discourages removal of settlers

Madang Governor Peter Yama has discouraged the removal of settlers from Madang Province.

He said not all settlers are involved in creating law and order problems in the province.

Yama made the statement following the decapitation of a teacher from Ialibu, Southern Highlands Province, on April 3, which caused a series of confrontations, including protests against squatters and opportunists.

The Madang Governor is against making rushed decisions that will affect the province in the future.

He said the removal of settlers is not in the best interest of the province therefore calls for an amicable solution.

He added that Madang people are working everywhere in the country and to remove settlers would just create another issue for them in other centres.

Yama stated that most of the settlers have contributed immensely to the development of Madang and not all of them are trouble-makers.

Meantime, he is urging all Madang MPs to put aside their political differences and work with him to serve the people.
