THE National Executive Council has appointed Bonny Igime as the new executive chairman of the Motor Vehicle Insurance Ltd (MVIL).
Igime, a former University of Papua New Guinea academic and executive manager for the Office of Climate Change, will take up his new post this week.
He has commended the government for appointing highly professional and qualified people to fill positions in the public service and state-owned enterprises.
Igime said he would serve this important sector and the government to the best of his abilities and skills.
He applauded the government for its approach on merit-based appointments to jobs and encouraged it to continue with its fight against fraud and corruption in the country.
He supported the position taken by Public Enterprises Minister Sir Mekere Morauta in urging all state-owned enterprises to be community-focused.
“Essential service providers such as PNG Power, Eda Ranu, Water PNG, Telikom and MVIL are enterprises that should be primarily concerned with providing quality and reliable services to the people,” he said.
“Profit margins should be subservient to the primary goal of serving people which eventually contribute to the overall cohesive development of the nation.”
Igime comes from Domkagul village in the Sinasina district of Chimbu. He attended the Oakland University in Alabama and the Andrews University in Michigan, USA.
In PNG, Igime attended the Sonoma and Pacific Adventist universities.
