WHAT WE EXPECT FROM OUR ELECTED REPRESENTATIVE COME AUGUST 2017.
We have 30 potentially parliamentary Leaders for Goilala right now on the loose trying to impress and convince the people of Goilala they are the right individuals to handle the task at hand.
What is this task on hand?
Let’s make it easy for them candidates so they know what is out there and need their undivided focus and attention once they enter the office.
1. TAPINI HIGHWAY.
This is the lifeline and heartbeat of Goilala especially knowing it connects to our District HQ.
2. AIR TRANSPORT.
With all airstrip open, except for Guari station, the need for reliable and consistent third tier level airline to consistently and fully provide air service to these airstrips is all time high. 90% of the Goilala population don’t use the Tapini Highway. Or this 90 % can use air transport apart from the Tapini HW.
While there is some form of communication stretched and expanded and installed in selected locations across Goilala, there is a need for mobile communication. How do you create the need to upgrade current VSAT communication from hardwired to mobile?
4. EXTEND FEEDER ROADS OUT.
Tapini Highway needs to be extended out to Guari station. Tapini Highway needs to be extended to Kerau. Tapini HW needs to make its way slowly towards Woitape.
How do you see that fit into your plans?
5. TAPINI STATION RENOVATE & MAINTAIN & DEVELOP.
As the District HQ, Tapini first of all needs to access TV and radio signals. Can this be done under your watch? Power supply and water supply services in District HQ, can that be upgraded, repaired and replaced to something that’s functioning, effective and affordable?
Public amenities like trade stores, banking facilities and sporting facilities and lodges and recreational sites in and around Tapini station – how do you address that?
6. WOITAPE & GUARI STATION.
Facelifting for Woitape and Guari is all facets, more or less Tapini, needs to be given some absolute and full focus. District office buildings are run down. Health facilities are dead. Schools are struggling to get through the day. Airstrips are closed. Please lay the blueprint of your plans for these two subcenters.
7.PUBLIC SERVANTS HOUSING.
Tapini, Guari, and Woitape need public servants to be housed there and work there. What are your plans to address this issue of public servants housing?
8. LAW AND ORDER IN GOILALA.
What are your plans, to addressing Law and order in Goilala? Village Policing system is dead. Village court systems are dead. Law and order are out of hand. Drugs are been cultivated openly and transported road Tapini HW and on foot to Port Moresby. You know that don’t you? Ok, how do you address that?
9. PUTTING MONEY INTO GOILALA PEOPLE’S POCKETS BACK IN GOILALA.
In Goilala, apart from TGM mine site Tapini station and along Tapini HW which sees some informal money making activities, rest of Goilala is living subsistence nomadic lifestyle like our ancestors. Do you have plans to formalize cash/revenue earning importunities for Rural Goilala?
10. HEALTH SERVICES.
The sick and injured far and wide through Goilala don’t have proper health services at their disposal. People are dying of curable diseases. Mothers are bearing their babies unattended. Mothers are dying due to birth complications and people are dying of curable diseases like TB. Give us an indication on how do you plan to address this ulcer?
The future of Goilala is very unknown from the educational point of view. From Elementary level to High School through to colleges and tertiary institutions, what is your plan?
12. TAPINI SACRED HEART HIGH SCHOOL.
As our only High School, what do you plan to do with Tapini SHHS? Any chances of upgrading it to Secondary? If so, any plans for feeder schools to this secondary school been created? And who feeds these feeder schools? And dropouts from our Secondary School, how do you cater for them back in Goilala?
13. YOUTHS and CHURCHES.
Youths are ticking time bomb. Goilala is a rugged and mountainous District. Getting to Youths can be very nerve testing and nerve racking. Explain to us the Youths your plans to address our problems? Churches also play a key role in Goilala. How do you factor them into your development plans in Goilala?
14. GENDER EQUALITIES.
Melanesia Culture and Customs in Goilala is truly active and alive. As our political head, how do you smartly defuse this cultural blockade and bring men and women of Goilala to see each other as equal partners in development in Goilala both mentally, socially, politically, spiritually, and peacefully?
