In response to Prime Minister James Marape’s recent statement regarding threats, Governor Allan Bird has come forward with a detailed account regarding alleged threats and concerning actions taken against them. Governor Bird’s remarks come amidst growing concerns over the integrity of the nation’s governance and economic systems.

Governor Bird began by affirming his commitment to evidence-based statements, emphasizing the importance of substantiated claims in public discourse. He revealed that he had been made aware of threats against him by a Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), who offered him close protection. Governor Bird promptly informed Deputy Prime Minister (DPM) Rosso of these threats, highlighting the gravity of the situation. However, he expressed disappointment at learning that the DCP who advised him is now facing disciplinary action for speaking out.

Furthermore, Governor Bird disclosed the existence of a letter dated February 18th, which he alleges indicates state agencies targeting him and seeking incriminating evidence. Despite not being questioned by law enforcement for six years, Governor Bird now finds himself labeled as a person of interest, raising concerns about the integrity of the investigation process. He vowed to release the letter on social media if necessary, signaling his determination to hold accountable those responsible for orchestrating such actions.

Governor Bird refrained from naming ministers who allegedly warned him of phone tapping, citing concerns for their safety. He questioned the efficacy of seeking recourse through existing institutions, such as the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) and the police, given potential conflicts of interest and lack of confidence in the current administration.

Despite these challenges, Governor Bird affirmed his readiness to confront any threats to his safety and integrity. He issued a stern warning to those involved in planning malicious activities, asserting that their actions would not deter him from his mission to serve the people of PNG. He underscored the importance of vigilance and preparedness in the face of adversity, emphasizing that he and his allies are undaunted by intimidation tactics.

Governor Allan Bird’s response serves as a clarion call for transparency, accountability, and good governance in PNG. His unwavering commitment to upholding democratic principles and combating corruption resonates with many Papua New Guineans who yearn for a fair and just society. As the nation grapples with systemic challenges, Governor Bird’s resolute stance offers hope for a brighter future built on integrity and accountability.
