Islands police get Kumul Petroleum support!
The national petroleum and energy company, Kumul Petroleum Holdings Limited this weekend handed over three fully-equipped vehicles worth K600,000 to the East New Britain Provincial Government.
At a small ceremony to mark the handover of keys of the vehicles to East New Britain Governor Michael Marum, Luke Liria, EGM Corporate Affairs for Kumul Petroleum Holdings said, “We at KPHL see the donation here today as an investment in the infrastructure to manage the law and order situation in the province. We hope that they will assist in strengthening the relationship of authorities with communities and encourage unity and peace.”
“I hope that these vehicles will assist the provincial leadership team in the province under Governor Marum and his administration and planning personnel when addressing any law and order problems that may arise.”
In accepting the keys to the three vehicles Governor Marum explained that the support from Kumul Petroleum was the result of discussions he had with the organisation when he was in Port Moresby.
Governor Marum noted,“My efforts to get support from organisations like Kumul Petroleum relate to my concerns about the law and order issues in the province and how these can be best addressed. These vehicles will definitely assist our logistics capabilities in enabling police personnel to travel around the province.”
“One of these vehicles will be assigned to Rabaul Police Station and the other two will be based in Kokopo.”
The vehicle key handover ceremony was also witnessed by the Esat New Britain Provincial Police Commander, Chief Inspector Janurius Vosivai and acting Provincial Administratot Levi Mano.Back to News
