Juffa criticizes Housing Corporation

Oro Governor, Gary Juffa has criticized the National Housing Corporation for eviction people without having alternate plans.

Governor Juffa said NHC has a record of carrying out evictions and then selling properties to foreign entities.

 

His criticisms come after the business arm of NHC, National Housing Estate Limited issued a warning to tenants of 5-mile, 3-mile and Saraga in the nation’s capital.

Making reference to the North Waigani Hostel eviction earlier this year, Governor Juffa accused the government for neglecting its people.

He said NHC, is a government institution that’s supposed to serve the interest of its people.

His view on the seven days’ notice issued to tenants in three NHC properties in NCD is that the government is unfair on Papua New Guineans.

The Governor made an appeal to the Housing Minister and NHE management to refrain from issuing eviction notices if they do not have a plan to address the ongoing housing problems.

He questioned why properties were sold to foreign entities and if the government was doing its duty in serving the interest of the people.

A former public servant, Governor Juffa is aware of the high rate of housing rentals in the city and the hardships faced by public servants in trying to find a roof over their head.

    MPs are so corrupt that they can’t distinguish between what is right and what is not..Most if not all MPs are dumb in decision making or tend to ignore the plights of ordinary PNGans. Appointing someone to manage such an important organization is very critical. Tax payers are the government’s slave. We the only country in the pacific region that is paying very high tax. There is nothing the government can do to alleviate the problem of housing in PNG..it’s so difficult for the dump MPs to make the right choice..They deserve public beating! it’s so painful to see people striving to live a honest life in towns and cities!
