ABG president chief John Momis this afternoon called for a full inquiry into the boat accident that has claimed so many lives of Bougainvilleans and other fellow Papua New Guineans.

He made these comment when sending his condolences to the families of those who lost their lives at this drastic accident.

Mr.Momis said that the probe into this disaster would determine the cause of this accident and those found guilty should face the full force of the law.

ABG President said that he fully supported the call by Prime Minister Peter Oniel to set up an inquiry into the boat accident.

He said the ABG plans to start up education institutions on Bougainville so that Bougainvillean students can study on Bougainville instead of taking risks looking for education institutions in other provinces.

Mr.Momis said that the ABG has plans to purchase its own passenger boat to serve its own people.

New Dawn Fm understands that the President wants the administrator to allow some funds to assist families trying to locate their relatives.

Bougainville disaster office has released that 46 passengers from Bougainville were on this boat between Kimbe and Lae.
