Agiru has not forgotten Hela-Opene folks

The National

AS a Papua New Guinean and a Hela son, I would like to thank all those involved in the multi-billion kina LNG project.
They have done a brilliant job to put PNG on the world map.
I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Hela leaders such as SHP Governor Anderson Agiru, Tari-Pori MP and Education Minister James Marape, Ko­roba-Lake Kopiago MP John Ke­ke­no, Komo-Margarima MP Fran­cis Potape and various tribal leaders.
Mr Agiru showed that he is a true leader when he announced that the benefits from the project would be shared between his brothers and sisters in Enga province through the construction of the Tari-Margarima-Kandep road and onto Laia­gam, Wabag and Wapenamanda; Enga provincial hospital, Tari-Porgera highway and a technical college.
As Mr Agiru has rightly stated the sons and daughters of Hela-Huli and Hela-Opone originated from the same parents and the relationship that they have enjoyed over the years must be maintained at all costs.
Some critics may not agree with this but the connection between the two groups had and will always remain.
Although the Openes were not with their Huli brothers and sisters during the recent licence-based benefits sharing agreement, they were there morally.
