Nauru to build new home for president

The Nauru government has acquired land for the building of a residence for the country's president Baron Waqa.

The State House is to be constructed at Cliff Lodge, which began as the home of the manager of the British Phosphate Commission and later became the residence of the manager of the Nauru Phosphate Corporation.

The government has leased the land from the 22 landowners for a 50-year period with a right of renewal.

The government's Nauru Bulletin said the island had not had a residence for its president for many years.
