PNC to Campaign for Rights of People Taken Away by Marape-Steven Govt

The Leader of the People’s National Congress Party, Hon. Peter O’Neill, CMG, MP, has reassured the people of Goroka that PNC will continue to work hard to overcome the damage that has been inflicted on the Eastern Highlands and the country due to current government’s failures over the past year.

On a two-day visit to the Eastern Highlands Province in support of Henry Ame, the PNC Candidate at the upcoming Goroka by-election, Mr. O’Neill said the country had been on sound path to development and this has been damaged but is not lost.

“Wok mas go yet in Goroka, and we will not let you down,” Mr. O’Neill said to community groups in Goroka.

“If you elect Henry Ame, he will continue the work our government had underway to restore the most important services that have been cut in the past year.

“Whenever this current government changes, be it sooner or later, Henry Ame will be part of a strong government that will give you back free education, put money back into hospitals and restore jobs that have gone.

“Our people have been suffering over the last year and we hear your cries.

“You did not want the bad change that happened and the difficulty that this has caused to you and your families, and Henry Ame and the PNC Party will bring back what was taken away from you.

“PNC’s policies have stood the test of time and helped our people have better lives, to have better roads, to have better hospitals and has delivered free education.

“With Henry Ame as your Member of Parliament he will fight for the rights of every community in Goroka.

“Henry Ame is an experienced businessman and he understand the challenges you face.

“Together with Henry Ame we will work to restore the Highlands Highway with Goroka as the gateway to the Highlands, and deliver the infrastructure for you to deliver your crops to markets.

“PNC is a party is that based on simple principles of loyalty, this is loyalty to our communities and to our country, and we always stick by this commitment.”

During the visit with Members of Parliament Hon. Richard Maru, Hon. Robert Atiyafa and Hon. Jeffry Komal, Mr. O’Neill also attended a ceremony with Goroka’s Gender Based.

Women’s Association, that presented a petition for the government to listen to demands to make life safer for women and girls.

“The safety and freedoms of the women and girls in our country are not being properly protected.

“No woman or girl should live in fear, they should not be beaten and should not be traumatised by abuse.

“PNC will continue to work for real change, and we will push the current government to continue with the actions that had been undertaken through the National Strategy to Prevent and Respond to Gender-Based Violence that we enacted.

“Our party will also put forward changes to legislation so that people who not only commit gender violence, but those who protect them or cover up abuse, will be charged.

“This is our policy, and while the current government is trying to take credit, we will let them carry on so long as this policy becomes law.”

Mr. O’Neill said he and PNC Members are looking forward to the by-election campaign and supporting Henry Ame to be re-elected to represent Goroka in the National Parliament.
