Radio & TV Tonga, Nuku’alofa, 31/07/2019
The newly appointed Government representative of Niuafo’ou has pledged to build the island’s prosperity in the spirit of unity.
Popi Puniani Tonga of Sapa’ata was appointed the Government representative earlier this month for a three-year term and hopes for cooperation with each member on the island to address the challenges they face daily.
He adds, road maintenance is needed urgently as well as maintenance at the airport’s runway.
He’s also working on new initiatives to protect the young adults from drug-related crimes as many islands in Tonga are struggling with its impacts.
Tonga signed his contract with the Government this month and is replacing Falati Papani.
