EHP people back sports cause on anniversary


ONE of the biggest crowds, most wearing the national colours – red, black and gold – came together as one, as a sign of peace and unity in last Sunday’s independence anniversary weekend walk for life.
This time, with the people of the Eastern Highlands taking to the streets of Goroka in support of NCD Governor Powes Parkop’s recent calls for peace and unity and to stop violence in sports.
The Eastern Highlanders have taken note of the challenge and responded meaningfully to promote peace and unity and saying “no” to violence in all its forms could not have come at a better time, than on the country’s 41st Independence anniversary.
“You Eastern Highlands people are champions for peace,” said Governor Parkop.
“You have shown today that we all represent one flag, one nation, one anthem, one leadership and are one in unity.”
University of Papua New Guinea’s EHP students president NopoKopo said that the messageof peace was one that their forefathers had brought to them and lived it as well.
“I want to also challenge other provincial student leaders on campus to do the same so that we stand united as one,” Noko said.
