|Post Courier |
Unbelievably Corrupt (UC) Peter Yama, fresh from his new court case to contest the recent election and put himself back in control of government funds, is now telling all of us how important it is to stop corruption! Always remember this secret: Pretend to be exactly the opposite of the kind of person you are and you're likely to fool heaps of people, especially in PNG. Are the foolish people of Karkar still dancing in pitiful Peter's honour?

Yama challenges Govt
Madang businessman Peter Yama has challenged Prime Minister Peter O’Neill and his cabinet to be transparent if they
were serious about fighting corruption.
Mr Yama threw down the challenge while supporting the Government on moves to combat corruption head-on.
He also said the O’Neill/Dion Government must introduce the Freedom of Information Act as this will support the move for Members of Parliament to be transparent.
“How far is Mr O’Neill willing to take this fight against corruption? He knows he will open a can of worms, but he must do it,” he asked.
“I challenge the elected leaders to declare all their business interests and assets to Papua New Guineans. This must be transparent and accountable to the people of PNG as they have the right to know.
“Fighting corruption must mean that we as leaders should be transparent and accountable to the people and that will cause the whole public service to follow suit and thus transform.
“If the Government is serious about fighting corruption then this fight starts with them; they have to be transparent. They must do that before they come out proclaiming the fight against corruption,” Mr Yama said.
He said, “Corruption has eaten away every fabric of this society and it’s not a joke anymore.
“Innocent Papua New Guinean’s are suffering because corruption exists in all sectors. (i.e. in both the private and public.) It’s everywhere and it’s not conducive to honest investors or businessmen.
“It is in the interest of all Papua New Guineans that we must continue to fight corruption through inquiries, investigations and tribunals.”
