Governor’s offer option for landowners

 They said this could be done until until such time the vetting process is done and genuine landowners are identified in their specific provinces.

Hela Governor, Francis Potape, and Southern Highlands Governor, William Powi, said this on TVWAN’s ‘Nau’ Program last night.

Both Governors said as the duly elected leaders of their respective provinces, they could sign on behalf of the unidentified leaders given the looming deadline on December 31.

Ministerial delegation in Hela to address landowner issues

The group comprises of the finance and petroleum ministers, a member of parliament, managing directors of trustee entities, officials from ExxonMobil and the media.

The delegation has just arrived at the Komo airport on a chartered Airlink flight and are now on their way to meet the landowners at Hides.

Discussions today with the landowners will be to address the petition they presented to the government earlier this week.

Although the petition was presented to ExxonMobil instead of the government, the team will try to deal with the issues raised.
