ToBaining calls for investigations into ENB leaders

ToBaining made this call after rumours of incest, allegedly by Deputy Prime Minister Sir Leo Dion, went viral on social media.

ToBaining told Loop PNG today that he had made various calls to the police authority to investigate and arrest those involved but nothing has been done yet.

However, Assistant Commissioner of Police for New Guinea Islands, Anton Billie, clarified that the report is now with the vetting committee at the Police Headquarters for directives.

ToBaining applauds ENB leaders for working together

“The journey was not easy. Great leaders from the province have laid the foundation of what we have been enjoying today.”

ToBaining told Loop PNG that ENB, being the model province in the country, has gone through tough times and proven to be the best.

He said one of the contributing factors to the success of the province is unity among the leaders. Without unity, the province will not be in its current stage.

ToBaining added that after the volcano eruptions in 1994, the province suffered and lost all its development.
