On that occasion, he appealed to all officials and staff in each regional apparatus organization (OPD) to show solidarity in their performance.
So that people can see all government officials in the province, unite to develop their region. “So this can also put people’s trust in supporting the government to develop the region,” he explained.

Build Papua with love is a very important concept to stop all kind or hatred provocations. Hopefully this concept could end Free West Papua separatism in Papua and West Papua provinces.
A former Dutch colony, West Papua was formally incorporated into Indonesia in 1969, after an undisputed vote of about 1,025 representative tribal leaders. The result of the plebiscite was overseen and endorsed by the United Nations.
Since the democratization in 1998, especially since 2007, democracy by mean of elections has been introduced to increase political participation in the two provinces. The fact that the leaders of Papua and West Papua provinces are democratically elected by the people has strengthened the legality of the region as a province of Indonesia.
