The new chief secretary for Bougainville Monovi Amani arrived today to a warm welcome at the Buka Airport from department secretaries of the Bougainville Administration and member for Hagogohe constituency Peter Sohia.
When welcoming back home the new head of the Bougainville public service, Mr. Sohia said the people of Bougainville expect the chief secretary to move the Bougainville public service miles ahead and knowing his background the chief secretary is sure to install mechanisms that will put Bougainville through the process of referendum.
In response, Mr. Amani said it is really a privilege to be back home and he believes that the people of Bougainville have been waiting for too long to acquire the benefit of government services.
He added by saying that the public service has to wake up and deliver.
The new chief secretary went on further to say that the public service needs to allow the people of Bougainville to be serious partners in the development of Bougainville because we know better.
He pointed out that different communities have different priorities but as head of the public service, Mr. Amani wants to see a public service that will stand with the government.
