In the province which is now the economic powerhouse of our nation there was an interesting development during the weekend.
Chiefs from Ba presented a traditional show of support for Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama and his government.
They underscored what was obvious to anyone who travelled the country.
This is that Commodore Bainimarama is seen as a true leader as we build a better Fiji.
He brings none of the baggage carried by the politicians of the past now desperately trying to climb back on the national stage.
Such is their desperation for power that some of them seem willing to work with others you would expect they have nothing in common with.
Even people whose views you would expect them to repudiate. Anything to get back into power, it seems.
The chiefs of Ba showed they were not fooled by such people.
The Prime Minister’s presence to open their Adi Salusalu Festival provided them an opportunity to thank him and his Government for the reforms being implemented.
They also made sure the Prime Minister knew he was welcomed in Ba.
Adi Salusalu committee chairman Apisalome Ulusova spoke on behalf of the 21 chiefs who had gathered and said:
“All the 13 provinces in Fiji have shown their support to you and your government except for the province of Ba so we are here today to present our support to you and to your government.
“This is the province where you grew up, where your education started and this is the day that the Lord has set aside for the chiefs of Ba to finally present to you, their support.”
The people of the West have looked on with pain as past political opportunists to the east have tarnished our nation’s name in their desperate quest for power and privilege in Suva.
In Commodore Bainimarama the people of the West see a leader who is concerned about all Fiji’s people. A leader who is truly walking the talk.
The warm welcome the Prime Minister received at the Adi Salusalu Festival in Lautoka emphasises that.
