MOROBE deputy Governor Morokoi Gaiwata has urged the supporters of Governor Kelly Naru and his predecessor Luther Wenge to put aside their differences and work together.
“Naru’s win to retain the governor seat after the court of disputed returns challenge by Wenge was a relief to the people of nine districts including the members of the provincial Tutumang and the administration,” Gaiwata said.
Gaiwata said the court proceedings had delayed the appointments of provincial committees, signing of their oaths and execution of roles and responsibilities.
“The governor’s seat in Morobe province is not anyone’s birthright,” he said.
“Supporters need to realise and understand that. It’s a political seat and people choose whoever they wish, trust and have faith in him to lead them as a captain to take their boat to its destiny.
“I appreciate Wenge’s leadership, the achievements he has delivered to the province and country. But people choose the leader.
“I appreciate serving as deputy governor under Wenge, and with Naru, I am willing to work for the people.”
“I appeal to the supporters of the rival candidates to put aside their differences and work together for the betterment of our people, the province and the country.”
Gaiwata said the aim was to ensure basic services reachedthe rural people.
