INDEPENDENCE Day should be a time when Papua New Guineans reflect on what they have done for the country instead of criticising the government, National Capital District Governor Powes Parkop says.
Parkop said that at the Lahara Play School in Boroko, Port Moresby, yesterday while witnessing the school’s independence celebrations.
He said as the nation moved towards 37 years of independence, it was important for people to challenge themselves to get better.
“Everybody else must do their part. We cannot go back to the past. We should ask what we can do for the country,” he said.
He appealed to people to celebrate the independence responsibly while taking care of the city.
School principal Helen Harricknen thanked parents for their continuous support and wished them happy independence.
