“… Mi Fight Hard lo Yupla Pipol blo Sepik na Papua New Guinea Wantaim …” I have not stolen any money and none of my family or relatives have received a single government contract since my election. I have also brought record amounts of money to our province. The future of the Sepik people is safe in my hands. I have always made decisions in the interest of ordinary citizens.” – Allan Bird.
I nominated yesterday quietly in Wewak because I didn’t want our supporters clogging up the traffic like we did in 2017.
Today morning we launch our campaign in Maprik. Simply because there are only 24 candidates nominating for Maprik Open seat. Friday is also a quiet day in Maprik so we can clog up the streets.
We are planning for 40-50,000 supporters to come and support National Alliance and PANGU. This will be the largest gathering in Sepik history.
I wish all intending candidates the best and let’s support a free and fair election. Let’s do this without violence. I shook hands and wished several Regional Candidates good luck in the elections this afternoon.
It’s been a great honor representing and speaking on behalf of the Sepik people. I know I won’t please everyone. I have never required Police escorts to travel the highways.
When I stop and people greet me, I know that I am doing the right thing by ordinary Sepik folks.
I thank you all for your support.
I have a simple message for our people: you can trust me to look after your future. Let me finish what I started in 2018.
I have not stolen any money and none of my family or relatives have received a single government contract since my election.
I have also brought record amounts of money to our province.
The future of the Sepik people is safe in my hands. I have always made decisions in the interest of ordinary citizens.
My only interest is in moving the Sepik Region forward by supporting the hard working rural people so that every citizen has an equal opportunity.
Sepik should be for all of us, not just the privileged few. This is how we can contribute to our country.
By making Sepik strong and self sufficient. That is our vision. We are strong people, we like to work for ourselves and this is what we have been trying to achieve.
I ask you all to trust me once more and let me finish what I started in 2018.
Transparency, honesty and public service to empower our people and local government. That’s what I stand for.
Yupla save pinis lo mi, yupla lukim mi pinis. Mi fight hard lo yupla pipol blo Sepik na Papua New Guinea wantaim. Givim mi spear wanpla more taim na larim mi pinisim wok mi startim.
Thank you na Maulu tumas.
