​National General Elections 2017: the EHP Governor Seat is not for idiots.

The Governor for Eastern Highlands presides over a linguistically most diverse people in Papua New Guinea.
A people whose rich traditional histories and diversities have forged a common identity in the mythical half-man Nokondi.
Eastern Highlanders are coffee farmers by far and large and Eastern Highlands is arguably the coffee capital of the South Pacific.
A niche based on seasonal coffee blossoms have birthed a coffee culture now intricately interwoven with the old.
Isn’t it any wonder why this people haven’t made coffee drinking a culture yet?
In their diversities, Eastern Highlanders created history in the National Elections in 2012 by electing the first female Governor in Papua New Guinea.
A history to be proud of as a matter of fact.
However, with the 2017 National Elections looming, ordinary Eastern Highlanders have taken to social media their grievances.
Not surprisingly the streets too are inundated with voices of desent.
A collective majority is calling for the demise of the ncumbent governor.
Her apparent failure to manage successfully a diversity being one of the reasons.
While others prefer not naturalized citizens, alleged fraudsters were condemned outright.
Even village leaders without a professional qualification were shunned.
The clergy interestingly were encouraged to continue on their noble profession of saving souls.
And retired public servants were cautioned to enjoy retirement in relative peace and comfort.
Meanwhile, an interesting new group, ‘recent university graduates’, weren’t spared the sword of criticism either.
Their apparent lack of maturity and professional work experiences being their major drawbacks.
So who then should Eastern Highlanders elect to occupy the Governor’s seat post 2017 National Elections?
Many commentators prefer candidates;
1. who have been living in the Eastern Highlands and be known to have been assisting and contributing towards solving problems in communities.

2. in a financially sound position.

3. who are comparably well educated with a professional carrier and also well versed in political matters.
A candidate with these attributes however wouldn’t make a good governor. Eastern Highlanders deserve better.
Someone who is articulate and fluent in dealing with a diverse people. Someone who could inspire through innovation and creativity. Someone who could lead the province with assertiveness to achieve important developmental goals and aspirations of EHP and by extension PNG.
It is therefore important to seek the best. And the best maybe handing in plain sight.
