By Aloysius Laukai
The ABG President Chief JOHN MOMIS says that Bougainville will not move forward unless the people unite and work together under one government.
He was speaking at the Konnou Ceasefire ceremony at Mogoroi village in Buin yesterday.
MR. MOMIS said that since he was elected as the ABG President he has been advocating unity in diversity by all Bougainvilleans.
MR. MOMIS was responding to calls by the Chairman of the Konnou Peace Committee, CHRIS MOTA who wanted the ABG and Mekamui to dissolve their differences and form just one government instead of confusion the people.
MR. MOTA in his welcome speech said that the situation in Konnou deteriorated because the people were divided into following two governments of ABG and the Mekamui controlled from Tonu in Siwai.
The ABG President also thanked the people of Konnou for working together and organizing the ceremony without assistance from the government.
More than Five thousand people braved the rain to witness the ceremony.
