Somare urges NA to have fighting spirit

In his final speech to NA on Friday in Port Moresby, Sir Michael also advised the party and its members to work together for the common good of the country.

“Spirit bilong fait i mas stap wantaim yupela National Alliance,” said the Grand Chief. (National Alliance must have a fighting spirit).

He added: “Don’t let your country down.”

Sir Michael also highlighted the August 2011 incident where he was removed as Prime Minister while receiving medical treatment in Singapore.

He said while many thought him to be gone, he said it was not his time.
