By JOYCE TOHUI
BOUGAINVILLEANS have shed concern s over the unsettled debts and outstanding claims left behind by the former North Bougainville MP, Michael OGIO.
The unsettled debts and outstanding claims, which have allegedly been collecting dust in the member’s office, have drawn a serious concern among the people of North Bougainville.
And they are questioning Mr. OGIO on how these funds would be settled.
They claimed he has not settled outstanding claims stemmed from projects not funded over the years since 2007 which also includes service providers’ invoices.
A complainant said a lot of these projects with their allocated funds promised by Mr. OGIO were not fulfilled.
He said as a service provider assisting Mr. OGIO since he came into power as the member for North Bougainville, so far nothing has been done to settle debts.
He added many outstanding issues are yet to be settled and the North Bougainville people are still waiting patiently.
He said some of Mr. OGIO’s special commitments including overdue claims still remain pending and this also includes the DSIP funded projects that has not benefited the people.
