 GULF leaders have been urged to work together to bring tangible developments to the province.

Minister for National Planning Charles Abel said this during a ground-breaking ceremony to launch the construction of a road that will connect Gulf to the Highlands and Momase regions.

Abel called on all the three MPs and provincial leaders to put aside their differences and work together.

“Gulf province is lacking basic services not because there is no money to fund the projects. It is the political instability by the leaders that is hindering the progress of development in the province.

“It’s about time we, as leaders, put away our differences and work for the common good of our people.”

Kikori MP and Minister for Labour and Industrial Relations Mark Maipakai said he regretted not working with Gulf Governor Havila Kavo in the past.

“It’s a pleasure to see all the three Gulf MPs coming together and sharing the vision of the province and how we can develop Gulf,” he said.
