Around 3, 000 Papua residents received land certificates directly handed over by President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo in a ceremony at the Jayapura regent office in Gunung Merah, Sentani city, Jayapura, Papua, on Wednesday.
It was the first time Jokowi had distributed land certificates in Papua, which he has visited eight times in total since he was first elected President in 2014.
Yawa Bosway, a resident of Sarmi regency who attended the ceremony to receive a land certificate, expressed his gratitude for being able to get a certificate for his land without a complicated, costly process.
“I feel happy and want to thank Pak Jokowi because I have been able to receive this certificate so easily. My land in Sarmi is around 2, 000 square meters or 2 hectares, ” said Yawa.
