A former rugby star Jolame Veidreyaki told the Fiji Sun that Fiji needed Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama to lead the country again in the next four years because he was a winner.

Originally, from Waya in Yasawa, Mr Veidreyaki now lives in Sydney.

He attended primary school with Mr Bainimarama at the Lautoka Fijian School.

Mr Veidreyaki left the country in 1996 but had closely monitored the political events in the country.

“The change in government in 2006 was a real blessing for the nation,” Mr Veidreyaki said.

“The politicians who were removed in the change in 2006 were really taking advantage of their parliamentary seats and had forgotten about the people who had voted them in.”

He said all the developments carried out were based on favouritism but this had changed under the Bainimarama leadership.

Mr Veidreyaki said he was really amazed with the developments he saw when came back in late August to lend his suppport to Mr Bainimarama in the general election.

“The developments around the country were proof of the strong leadership in the current Government.”

Past leaders, he said, only cared for chiefs who supported them.

For Fiji to move forward, it should have a very strong leader like Mr Bainimarama.

Mr Veidreyaki will return to Sydney after a new government is formed and he is hopeful that FijiFirst will win.
