The province of Bua does not want to be involved in politics in its support for Fiji’s roadmap and the formulation of the new constitution.
The chairman of the Bua Provincial Council, Alipate Radrodro, in an interview at the council’s office at Nabouwalu said the province had opted to be apolitical saying this had materialised in their submission to the Constitution Committee.
“We have learned from the past where politicians used the province for their own political gain but the people continue to struggle,” Mr Radrodro said.
The province, he said, had made a written submission based on what the people wanted and voicing what they wanted to be included in the new constitution.
“They want more developments in the province to lift their living style.”
On education they want more help to see their students access quality education up to tertiary level.
Most villages, he said, had difficulty in accessing health services and were asking for a nursing station at their villages.
“They are also asking for better roads and transportation.”
Mr Radrodro said they were grateful for the new Labasa/Nabouwalu highway because this would open more opportunities for the people of Bua.
When asked about Bua’s stand on Fiji being a Christian State, Mr Radrodro said the issue was a non-negotiable item and they would not comment on it.
