Meanwhile, the chairman of the association, Sahat Simatupang, stated that the team formed by President Jokowi must not benefit the land mafia.

“We believe President Jokowi’s intention is to solve the land problem in North Sumatra. But Jokowi should also know that the land mafia in North Sumatra is actually hiding behind the decision makers in the agrarian sector,” said Sahat.
