In a press conference today in Port Moresby, Minape said his aim is to change Lae city into a proper, regulated settlement city.
“Lae has been stagnant for the last 41 years and needs a visionary leader to move it forward.”
He said settlements have been popping up everywhere in Lae city and a regulated system of settlement is needed.
Minape added that Lae is the industrial hub of the country and needed somebody with a vision to lead the people and show them the way.
“If I am elected as an MP, the buck stops with me. I don’t want evictions in Lae.”
