“This is stealing and corruption at the highest level which NCDC have been unable to stop because it is always too late when we receive reports of land allocations and is costing the Commission a lot in legal bills,” he said.
Governor Parkop said NCDC has written a letters to the Lands Minister to appoint a land board for the Commission but was rejected.

The Governor is now calling on the Prime Minister to meet with the Department and address this ongoing issue.
