Parkop was 15 minutes late: former aide

Former Executive Office of the governor of NCD, Governor Powes Parkop has defended his past boss.

Terence Moka told Loop PNG that comments on Facebook and from certain media organization that Governor Parkop came more than an hour late for the farewell  of East Sepik Governor and PNG’s first Prime Minister Sir Michael Somare is untrue.  

“I was there at the Stadium, and Governor Parkop came 15 minutes late,” Moka said.

He said plans were cancel the event because of the rain but because Sir Michael had already arrived at Sir Hubert Murray Stadium, the event had to proceed and Governor Parkop had to rush to the stadium.

 Moka is now working as an adviser to the NCD Governors’ office.
