Written By : SUN FIJI NEWSROOM. Government will continue to focus on improving the lives of all citizens in the New Year, says Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama.
Yesterday, Mr Bainimarama also urged all citizens to stand up against those who are trying to undermine their work.
He said we must all work together and work harder at becoming citizens
“I know there are some who are still working behind the scenes to undermine the coming together of our people; there are some who still think along ethnic or racial lines,” Mr Bainimarama said.
“I also know that there are a few who are working with some of our development partners, our international friends, and some sections of the media to undermine the efforts of the government; they are spreading misinformation about Fiji and what is happening in Fiji.
“We have to be aware of them; we have to stand up to them by pointing out the facts,” he said.
He said that we should not let the personal agendas of a few who were part of the elite, who was part of the old way of thinking undermining us.
“Stand up to them. Tell them that you are looking to the future. Tell them that our youth, our young are our future. Tell them that you will not stand for ethnic or religious chauvinism. Tell them that we want to engage with our neighbours and welcome friendships as equals, as partners. Tell them that we no longer have a racial agenda. Tell them that we truly believe in and want to practice good governance, transparency and accountability. Tell them that we want true justice. Tell them that we want true democracy. Tell them that we are one nation,” he continued.
He wished all the people of Fiji and abroad as well as visitors to our shore a very happy New Year.
