They said this has led to the recent call-out by the government.
Hela Gimbu Association Inc chairman Damien Arabagali said Sir Leo as the Minister responsible must take the lead and visit the new province.
“Why is the Deputy Prime Minister not visiting the province? We are calling on him to visit the new province and experience what life is in the province rather than staying in Port Moresby.
“If he doesn’t visit the province, he must resign and let others take over from him,” says Arabagali.
