By Aloysius Laukai
The ABG President, Chief DR. JOHN MOMIS is calling on the people of Bougainville no matter what faction they come from to be committed for Bougainville’s development into the future.
He was speaking on New Dawn FM this morning.
The President said that the recent trip by the Papua New Guinea Prime Minister, PETER O’NEILL to Bougainville showed his commitment for Bougainville and the ball was in Bougainville’s court to make this commitments work.
He said that it was now time for Bougainville to unite and support the momentum created by this trip to develop the region.
President MOMIS said that the Papua New Guinea, Prime Minister has clearly stated that Panguna was in the hands of the landowners and the Autonomous Bougainville Government and they can decide on it at a later date.
He said that his main aim was to build the infrastructures needed urgently like road, bridges, airports, Hospitals and Schools to prepare the place for the approaching referendum.
PRESIDENT MOMIS said that trip by the Prime Minister was a wakeup call for Bougainvilleans to come out from their slumber and contribute to peace building and development programs for Bougainville.
He said that Bougainville was in the hands of all Bougainvilleans and making Autonomy work or achieving an acceptable result in the coming referendum will depend on how we are united and preparing for this referendum.
President MOMIS further warned that if Bougainville fails this time this would be the end of Bougainville as nobody would want to trust us in future.
