Two prominent chiefs yesterday led the pledge by the Ra people to support Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama and his FijiFirst Government.

Tui Nalawa Ratu Epeli Niudamu and Tui Nasau Ratu Isei Iliyasikaisau made the pledge at the talanoa session with Mr Bainimarama at Dadamu in Nanukuloa, Ra. Mr Bainimarama was there to open the Ra Provincial Council meeting. Ratu Niudamu said not only Ra  had benefitted from Mr Bainimarama’s excellent leadership.

“The whole of Fiji has,” he said.

“He is the leader for all Fijians and helps us all,” he said.

He said Mr Bainimarama was totally different to past leaders.

“He listens to our concerns and acts on them.  Some of the past leaders only listened to  people they knew and were connected to.”

Ratu Epeli said the Bainimarama-led Government had helped in the development of the province, transforming people’s lives.

“The Prime Minister’s leadership is different from other leaders who had led our beloved country.”

Ratu Epeli hoped Mr Bainimarama would continue his leadership after the 2018 General Election.

It would be hard to get another leader like Mr Bainimarama, he said.

He said the people of Nalawa wholeheartedly want Mr Bainimarama to lead the nation after the election.

“We will vote for him.”

Ratu Isei said his people supported Mr Bainimarama’s excellent leadership. He said his people were happy with the development work the Government had carried out in the Nasau district.

Past leaders did not deliver to the people and that was why his people would like to see Mr Bainimarama and his FijiFirst Government continue leading the country after the general election.

Their roads were good, but it should be serviced time and again.

He personally made a request to Mr Bainimarama for the health service to continue at Nasau district after what had happened to their doctor.

According to Ratu Isei the Nasau Health Centre served about 3000 to 5000 people. Mr Bainimarama assured Ratu Isei that the  service would continue and the Ministry of Health would monitor the situation regularly.

Viti Levu district representative Ilitomasi Vana also pledged the support of the district to Mr Bainimarama. He made a request for seawalls and electricity. Mr Bainimarama said this could be included in the 2019–2020 Budget as many villages around the country wanted the same things.

Tomasi Daunibuca also pledged the support from the Nakorotubu district. They wanted a school and Mr Bainimarama had assured them that the construction of the new Nakorotubu Secondary School would start this year.

Bureiwai representative Paula Tikoiciva said they were happy with the Government and would like Mr Bainimarama to continue leading the nation after the 2018 General Election.

Mr Bainimarama said he was happy with the support and the talanoa session.
