ONE CANNOT STEAL FROM HIS OWN BUSINESS
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.
