***PNC-Led Government to Bring New Era of Growth***
PM O’Neill was speaking with the people of Wiabo in the Obura Wanenara district of Goroka yesterday, where he committed to continue road construction in the province.
“In only five years, we have delivered on our promises in our simple policies, which you have seen all around you,” the Prime Minister said.
“Give us another five years, and you will see this country transform. Road infrastructure is the key to economic development and has been our government’s priority in ensuring the rural population have access to better services.
“Road infrastructure is essential for the delivery of healthcare and education so that services reach rural communities easily and on time.
“We will further continue funding for more classrooms and make sure educational materials reach the schools.”
The Prime Minister was campaigning with Obura Wanenara candidate John Boito, where he urged the people to vote for Mr Boito so that he can continue building the road from where it was left.
“There has been so much negativity during this campaign from the opposition, they have made wild accusations. But action speaks louder than words, and this has been demonstrated in the last five years.”
Village leaders in Wiabo applauded the commitments from the Prime Minister and Mr Boito after so many past decades of being neglected.
“In five years, we have delivered proper classrooms, and your children are going to school.
“Before we came to government, this was just a dream.
“Free education to continue under a PNC-led government, but it would be cancelled if the opposition had a chance to form government.
“The benefits of free education are clear for your children, particularly families in villages with parents who could not afford school fees.
“Our government will keep your kids in school so they can have better lives as they grow into adults.”
The Prime Minister was accompanied by PNC candidates including, Governor Julie Soso, Minister Nick Kuman and Minister Benny Allan.
