This committee, he said, is no different as it is part of its leadership.
The committee, he said, has only four months to deliver services to the people before the next elections,
Mr Polye said the establishment of the committee would not only ensure they address governance issues.
Further, he said contractors delivered works to high standards and with value for money.
He said they flew committee members in from the electorate at the request of the NPC.
Furthermore, he said NPC officials could not return to Enga for this.
