Former governor pays tribute to Philemon

"He thought of the majority of the people and stood tall by his words." This was how former Morobe governor, Luther Wenge, described the former Post-Courier chief editor.

He paid tribute during the funeral at the St Paul Lutheran Church in Lae yesterday.

Wenge said Oseah was a no-nonsense man who didn't affiliate with any political parties or mingle with politicians. He was purely neutral.

Morobe has truly lost a leader who fought and stood for all Papua New Guineans and developed the country through his fair and just writing, said the former governor.
