“The issue of the division of Central Papua Province is getting hotter. Many refused, but the central government hoped this must work. We as regional leaders must be able to secure all sides.

For him, the capital of Central Papua Province to be Nabire. This has been agreed upon by a number of regional heads, namely the Regent of Dogiyai, the Regent of Deiyai, the Regent of Intan Jaya, the Regent of Puncak Jaya, the Regent of Nabire and himself as the Regent of Paniai. If the goal of the division is to improve the welfare of the Papuan people, the capital of the province of Central Papua should be Nabire.
