In his Christmas and New Year message, Police Commissioner Gari Baki said Papua New Guinea is celebrating its 42nd Christmas as a united nation of a thousand tribes this year.
“As a nation we have come a long way. But the road ahead is still long and filled with many challenges,” he stated.
“Whatever the future holds for our country, we stand a better chance of meeting the challenges together as one people and a united country.
“So on this Christmas festive period, I appeal to every citizen across our beautiful nation to celebrate this festive season in the true spirit of Christmas.
“Take time to enjoy with family and friends. Also take time to reflect on the past year and plan to make some positive changes not only for yourselves but for your family and the country in the New Year.
“On behalf of my family and all members of the Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary, we wish every citizen of our country a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous 2018.
“God bless you all.”
