The Member for Madang Nixon Duban maintains that linking rural roads is a commitment from the government to ensure basic services reach the people.

Such as health, education, infrastructure, law and order and economic development reaches vast majority of the population in remote areas to improve their livelihood.

Duban said this when presenting a cheque of K400,000 to a construction company, LPW  last week to complete the missing road link between Matepi and Gal in South Ambenob of Madang District.

In presenting the cheque, he stated that most rural areas in South Ambenob have lacked proper Government services forcing them to resort into cult activities for a hope of a better living.

Since taking office, Duban has invested heavily on road networks in those areas, which have now linked many forgotten villagers whilst opening corridor for economic development to take place and breaking their cult mentality.

Duban who is also the Minister for Transport and Infrastructure  said that the people of South Ambenob has great potential in their cocoa and coffee, which they were once known for but over the years deteriorating road conditions cause most of their produce to rot away.

“They struggle by carrying cocoa bags on their shoulders and walk through bush tracks along the mountain ranges to sell their beans and I have seen that myself that’s the reason I’m investing on roads,” said Duban.

It has all changed today where the Member has put money into where it is due by building new and maintaining existing roads to pave way for economic developments. Press Release
