Numu calls for political unity so province can grow


SAYING the time for playing politics is over, Eastern Highlands Governor Peter Numu is appealing to local leaders to set aside their differences and help develop the province.
“Let us all work together to serve the people of Eastern Highlands,” he said. “Their interests supersede everything else. Those who spread rumours, false and misleading information about the governor, his office and the provincial administration are con artists and cargo cult practitioners.
“As long as I am governor, I will continue to support important government programmes and services in the province.
“The governor’s seat is not my birthright. If people are not happy with my leadership, they have the power to choose a new leader in the next election.”
Numu said the time for playing politics was over, “if you want to challenge me, you can do so in 2022”.
The first-term governor spoke last Friday when officiating at the opening of new teachers’ houses in the Mando Primary School, Daulo.
