Member for Bogia District, Robert Naguri called the Governor for Madang and Chairman of the House of Assembly, Ramsey Pariwa to bring to the attention of Police Commissioner proposed changes of police officers especially with the replacement of the Provincial Police Commander (PPC) Acting Superintendent, Mazuc Rubiang with an unattached officer to as the new Madang PPC.
MP Naguri said the Madang Provincial Assembly members are concerned about the changes happening in the Police department.
“I for one see that the change in the PPC is not in the interest of people of Madang rather one or two individuals,” Naguri said.
Mr Naguri insisted that it would be better if the Police Commissioner brought himself down to the Province and discuss the changes in the provincial police head to the leaders of this province prior to making replacement.
“Police Commissioner and the Prime Minister I appeal to you, please do not play around with law and order issues in Madang. We have a copper mine and soon we will have Pacific Maritime industrial Zone (PMIZ), a multi billion kina project in the Pacific and we’d like to ensure that law and order is in order,” he said.
Naguri said that they did not want unattached officers replacing the Provincial Police Commander rather someone who was actively performing his or her duty.
“I am standing here as a leader of this province and I am calling for better decision making when it comes to matters of this province,” he said.
Meanwhile MP Naguri, reminded members of the Assembly that they are appointed as leaders to make changes and if they want a new change for the province, they need to play their roles as leaders and actively perform their duties in order to bring back Madang to its former glory.
