Petroleum and Energy Minister Nixon Duban

Duban concerned at negative social media waged on police

Minister for Petroleum and Energy, Nixon Duban, said this during the police station commanders’ farewell parade at Boroko Police Station last week.

Duban says people do not care about the kind of language they use to destroy the credibility of our country.

“This is your country and you must promote it,” he says.

Potential investors will always make reference to what we write on social media and other networks about our disciplinary forces in the country.
