HAGEN MP William Duma says there should be a change in leadership in Western Highlands to move the province forward.
Duma said good leaders were needed so that the people could see progress and enjoy its benefits.
He said there was no Independence Day celebration organised by the province last week which was really disappointing.
Duma celebrated the day in his electorate.
He called on the provincial government to take the lead and work with the MPs so that the people could see changes and progress.
Duma said the other three MPs in the province – Koi Trappe of Mul-Baiyer, Wesley Nukundi of Dei and Benjamin Poponawa of Tambul-Nebliyer – were doing their part in their electorates.
“I have been around for 15 years and I know very well if the province is changing or not,” he said.
He said electricity was connected to almost the whole of the electorate.
“I do not believe in solar panels because these are all band aid solutions that will never last,” he said.
“Give them (the people) something permanent.”
Duma said the construction of the Baiyer – Madang Highway, the extension of the Kagamuga International Airport and the commissioning of Mt Hagen city meant that good things were happening.
