OPPOSITION leader Sir Mekere Morauta has suggested that the National Capital District get a loan and have the roads in the city sealed.
Sir Mekere said doing bits and pieces would not do much and is eventually costing the city millions.
The former Prime Minister said NCD could get a loan of K50 to K100 million and have it directed to upgrading and sealing of all the roads in the city.
He said this when presenting cheques to four groups for various projects in his electorate and announcing that he has allocated K6 million for roads.
Meanwhile, Sir Mekere said he is committed to working in partnership with Christian churches and other non-government organisations.
He also commended the work of the churches as partners in development and this country is in debt to their commitment where government services are not there.
Sir Mekere told the media and a small group of people that where there is no presence of the government, the churches are there.
As a leader he commended them for their continued services in both spiritual and physical.
Meanwhile, other funded activities in his Moresby North West electorate are the completion of bore water project at Nautana settlement worth K27,906, K10,000 to Agape group in Morauta for church building materials, about K4000 to Waigani catholic church, another K4,000 to Christian police ministry to buy musical instruments and K3,000 for Church of praise to buy building materials.
