Moresby is your city too: Parkop

Bougainvilleans have been assured that the capital of PNG, Port Moresby, is also theirs.

This was the message from NCD Governor Powes Parkop, in a recent visit to Bougainville to launch the Little Doctors program as well as his Social Democratic Party (SDP).

“I want to assure you Bougainvilleans that I am the Governor of your capital city Port Moresby, it is your city too,” Parkop said.

“And I would like to convey my sincere greetings from the people of NCD to you people here on Bougainville.

“You also contribute to building Port Moresby with your skills and ideas and of course, your Panguna mine when it was still operational.

“Indirectly, I am also your governor even though you never voted for me. What I do in the city, I also know that you people are around.”

Parkop said just like the PM was given the mandate by the people of Ialibu Pangia, he has been mandated by the people of PNG, due to everyone from the country living and working in Port Moresby.

The SDP was founded in June 2010 by Parkop.
