PREMIER VEKE DENIED INVOLVING IN LAND SALE, SAY CLAIMS MISLEADING
Guadalcanal Provincial Premier Anthony Veke has denied claims regarding the sale of land in Doma, North West Guadalcanal.
Premier Veke made the statement to clarify recent media reports regarding his involvement on the sale of Guadalcanal land to local businesses in Marau and Doma.
Premier Veke told SIBC News, such claims are misleading and speaks badly to the people of Guadalcanal Province, saying it will never move the province forward.
Mr Veke said he is not aware of any land sale at Doma to businesses like Lee Kwok Kuen as claimed by the former Premier David Rosalio.
He urged people not to mislead people in the media as a means of political campaign or supporting intending candidates.
SIBC News understands, Premier Anthony Veke is contesting the West Guadalcanal Constituency parliamentary seat in the general election next month.
