WHAT HAS WILLIAM SAMB NOT DONE FOR GOILALA DISTRICT IN SUCH A SHORT TIME?
Are we still blind to what William Samb has started doing for his beloved people of Goilala over the last 18 months while in the Opposition?
This humble yet visionary leader has done a tremendous job over the last 1 year and 8 months. Give him a full five-year term and Pangu Party will form the next Government and we can see the continuation of what he has started with Pangu for Goilala District.
I am proud to say that we have a good number of high profile candidates for this election representing Goilala District. Some are doers and others are just talkers. Bruce Mamando is a doer, just like William Samb. However, in the by-election in August 2015 the people of Goilala District opted for their own son in William Samb to lead the process of change in Goilala District. He has lived to his promise and has started changing Goilala District.
This is the time to go in and complete what he has started for the short term and medium term projects and lay the foundation for the longterm projects like human resources development. The foundation for the Goilala Dream is Human Resources Development of Goilala District. But our people must have better health care, good transport infrastructure, communication with the outside world and be economically empowered through the development of our agriculture sector to be able to focus for the long term which is the development of our human resources.
Goilala District cannot compare itself with Simbu and Enga Provinces for example. These two provinces invested in human resources through their visionary leaders like late Iambakey Okuk and Peter Ipatas when Goilala District was still in the dark.
To change and be in par with the rest of PNG, we must have a workable development blueprint for Goilala District.
That development blueprint is starting to manifest under William Samb. Make no mistake about it.
See it and believe in William Samb and what he has started doing for Goilala District. You may dislike him, you may hate him and you may envy him. But the overall development and prosperity of Goilala District and the future well-being of our sons and daughters and their children are far more paramount than our individual interests and beliefs.
Let us give our support to William Samb because he knows where he is leading Goilala to and he has a roadmap that he is following. Goilala District will not be lost anymore.
People of Goilala District, return William Samb to make Goilala District great again.
Long Live the Goilala Dream!
23rd April 2017.
Kosipe valley had the opportunity to have its VSAT service with the other Farming Projects officiated by their local MP Hon William Samb.
Accompanying the Open Member was the CEO of Manolos Aviation Jurgen Ruh and Airborne Logistics Pilot Todd McNahon to this event.
Kosipe valley has its place in the history books both on the archeological front and the human resource development front for Goilala.
Kosipe is said to be the first site of human settlement dating back 50,000 years when Australia was connected to the Island of New Guinean to what’s is known as the Continent of Sahul.
Kosipe also was the first site where Catholic missionaries settled after landing into Yule Island back in the 1880s. Catholic missionaries headed inland from Yule Island and Kosipe was one place they settled after Fane and Ononge.
The sun rose that morning to send its beautiful rays over Kosipe and the locals dressed up to the occasion to witness that launching.
Joel Neva with Tood McNahon officially opened the Potato, and Strawberry with Super Talapia and Common Cup Fish Project.
While Manolos Aviation CEO Jurgen Ruh with Central Provincial Police Commander Asi Laimo officially opened the VSAT service. Coming with this VSAT service is the voice for telephone and extension of TV signals – EMTV and NBC. It also has the option to extend data service for the internet.
Speaking on behalf of the people of Kosipe, Joel Neva requested the MP, if he does return as the MP for Goilala after the NGE2017, to purchase a tractor with a ploughing component with tools – spades, forks, knives – to enable the locals to farm their fertile valley.
