Otsus Papua Brings Many Positive Contributions

Cendrawasih Earth is like a gemstone that needs to be scrubbed to make it look even better. Therefore, Papua has been privileged since 2001 in the form of special autonomy. This program provides the community there with funds of up to trillions of rupiah, to promote and develop their region.

The special autonomy program that has been in effect for 20 years has succeeded in building beautiful infrastructure, for example, Sentani International Airport. Apart from physical development, there is also human resource development, which is channeled through the education sector. Schools for Papuan children are guaranteed because they receive scholarship funds which are quite nominal.

But after 20 years and will be extended again in 2021, is there still someone who has the heart to reject special autonomy? Of course the answer is no. All Papuan civilians agree to the extension of the special autonomy because this program has proven to be profitable and has changed their lives for the better.

Academic of the University of Cendrawasih Papua, Ferry Kareth, stated that the special autonomy was quite successful in its implementation. However, there needs to be an increase so that funds can be evenly absorbed. This lecturer at the Faculty of Law is an expert, because he participated in the formation of the 2001 special autonomy draft. So he has been observing the intricacies of the special autonomy program for nearly 20 years.

Ferry added that the special autonomy program is a gift from God for Papua. The privileges given to the people of Cendrawasih Earth must be used for the common good. So there should be no rejection of the extension of the special autonomy. Because it is the same as rejecting the provision of the Almighty.

So far, the special autonomy program that has been quite successful is the construction of the Trans Papua Road and the provision of scholarships. This scholarship fund even brought one of the youths from Bumi Cendrawasih, Billy Masambrar, to school and college. Until now he has succeeded in making the Kitong Bisa Foundation and a special staff for President Jokowi.

To provide scholarships and run other programs, the smooth running of the special autonomy funds is a prerequisite. Finance Minister Sri Mulyani has guaranteed an increase in the number of special autonomy funds volume 2, so that this program will run smoothly. Moreover, in the last 20 years there has certainly been inflation, so an increase in the special autonomy fund is a natural thing.

Otsus is very much needed to further develop Papua to be advanced and modern. The eastern region is no longer synonymous with backward people. However, there are many Papuan sons who are smart and succeed in becoming 'people', such as Boaz Salosa, Silas Ohee, and Freddy Numberi. They are successful in their respective fields.

The success of the special autonomy volume 1 makes this program mandatory to continue, so that more progress can be seen on Earth of Cendrawasih. All elements of society also agreed to extend the special autonomy system, because it changed the face of Papua to become modern. And there is no disparity between West and East Indonesia.
