The Prime Minister made the remarks last week in Mendi while attending the first Provincial Executive Council meeting of Southern Highlands Province since the 2017 national election.
 
"After the election we saw displays of reckless self-interest by some individuals and this undermined stability in the province. With the new Provincial Executive Council we will see positive change and development once again in Southern Highlands Province.
 
"I call on all public servants to focus on the task of restoring service delivery, and to step-up efforts to deliver better education, health services and public infrastructure," O'Neill said.
 
He also called on provincial leaders to set aside their differences and put the people first.
 
"Leadership is not about winning, it is about demonstrating leadership through the right attitude and actions. Leadership is about humbleness and serving our people by delivering services that change lives," he said.
