By PM James Marape
Good evening all, pass words around that I DONT HAVE AGENTS AND WANTOKS ENGAGED TO BE LOBBYISTS TO COLLECT FEES OR BRIBES OR FAVOURS.
To all companies and individuals out there please be on standby for individuals or companies claiming to represent the PM of PNG. They are criminals report all those request to police, ombudsman or ICAC.
I gained office with no money, no political party, no lobbyist, not too many friends except few loyalist including MPs and general people of PNG who wanted change plus the Hand of my Creator God.
Please circulate that I don’t have agents and if anyone wether the fake accounts holders in FB or others in private who might request help as if coming from me, report them.
Talk about fighting corruption, we hopefully should pass Independent Commission Against Corruption tomorow. It is in our government’s program tomorow and all MPs including opposition have been told that this is a Marape Steven Government’s priority legislation, including whistle blowers act.
This ICAC bill will set the institution that should assist us fighting corruption and we will build it where it is free from politics and become an agent that assist transforming our country into the future.
Other lead corruption fighting agencies like Transparency International, Ombudsman and police plus judiciary will be called upon to assist set up the structure of ICAC.
The whistle blowers Act we will pass also protects those who report corruption so I request those who have evidence of corruptions in our country, prepare to take cover under our whistle blowers act and report them.
Many government have promised ICAC but myself and Hon Davis Steven as AG and our present parliament including ministers have pledged to deliver this tomorow.
PNG, I placed Minister Krammer to fight corruption and he is giving his best shot, I am slowly but surely placing public service appointments I feel will assist us get there, like the appointment of a reknown corruption fighter in Sam Koim to IRC as few small examples.
Rome was not built in one day or one year, we have a long way to go in PNG but we making the first correct painful baby steps.
When you see wrong and corruption, assist being agent of law, provide your evidence and help us take back PNG, instead of just being Facebook or cyber complainants.
Whilst on corruption, the last few days an issue on a gas license transaction that took place during Minister Duma’s time as petroleum minister has been a public concern, I am concern too and just like other allegations, I have requested detail scrutiny of this allegation raised by a foreign media.
Minister Duma has been asked to provide his side of the story, and into the future greater light will unravel on this matter too. Again if anyone of you have any interest or information on this then Facebook is not the forum but at responsible offices including police and ombudsman.
This country is here to stay and some of these will be work in progress so have faith we will get there.
Let’s all work where ever we are placed.
