Replace the Tasks of the Governor of Papua, Public Services Continue to Run


PAPUADAILY –Regarding the assignment of Regional Secretary (Sekda) Dance Yulian Flassy as the daily executor (Plh) of the governor of Papua, Head of the Information Center (Kapuspen) of the Ministry of Home Affairs (Kemendagri) Benni Irwan ensures that Papua’s government and public services run smoothly.

It was said by Benni Irwan during a working visit to Papua Province on Sunday (27/6).

“The central government and the provincial government have the same enthusiasm to ensure that the administration of government and development as well as public services in Papua Province runs as well as possible,” he explained.

Furthermore, Benni explained that the assignment of the Papua Regional Secretary as Acting governor was aimed at accelerating the distribution of the 2021 Physical Special Allocation Fund (DAK) which was allocated in 7 development fields, such as education, health, agriculture, environment, road construction, to irrigation.

The reason is, in the process of distributing these funds, there are several documents that have not been signed by the Papua regional head.

Meanwhile, Papua Governor Lukas Enembe is being treated to restore his health condition.  So that people are needed to replace his duties during his illness.

On the other hand, the position of deputy governor has not been filled after the death of Klemen Tinal last month.

“So, the regional government, in this case, is pushing for the acceleration of the fulfillment of the distribution requirements. This is what we encourage, with the same spirit between the central government and regional governments,” said Benni

Benni appealed that the distribution of physical DAK could be immediately utilized for the needs of the community throughout the Papua region.  He also hopes that this visit can resolve misunderstandings and end the polemic that occurred.

“We hope that after this explanation, we can carry out our duties as well as possible. In the future, there will be no more problems due to lack of understanding,” he concluded.

During his visit, Benni also invited all parties to pray for the recovery of Governor Lukas Enembe.  Thus, he can continue his leadership until the end of his term with the support of all Forkopimda, religious leaders, community leaders, and all levels of society.
