To change Papua New Guinea, it must start from those of us who are placed at the apex of each government institutions. We must show care and protect our organizations as if it’s our own business – Sam Koim.
ONE CANNOT STEAL FROM HIS OWN BUSINESS – Sam Koim, Papua New Guinea Internal Revenue Commissioner.
A very key piece penned by Sam Koim, the current Internal Revenue Commissioner.
Many a times, We complain that things aren’t well and long for a better PNG. We even complain when foreigners are in charge of our departments and agencies of Government. But when we are given the opportunity to run a department or agency, we try to steal from it and run it to the ground. We have become our own worst enemies.
More often than not, outsiders do not rob an organisation. Those on the inside, who have the keys to the safe, collude by opening the doors for the outsiders to defraud this country.
If we want to change this country, it must start from those of us who are placed at the apex of each government institutions. We must show care and protect our organisations as if it’s our own business. One cannot steal from his own business hence the call.

If every Papua New Guinean have this mindset, my friend this country will flourish! A rich Nation with a diverse Culture, blessed with wonderful people…however, we are all selfish in one way or another.
If all of us individual in this country having the ownership mindset in whatever business we are working for, we will achieve our Dream…”Take Back PNG”.
