Prime Minister Rear Admiral (Retired) Voreqe Bainimarama has invited everyone to join him on his journey to make Fiji the pride of the Pacific and the world.
Speaking at the unveiling of FijiFirst as the proposed party’s new name and the campaign bus at My Suva Picnic Park yesterday, he said: “I need you all, all Fijians to come with me on this journey.
“My political movement and I are getting ready to take each one of you on a journey… whether you be a commoner or a chief; a shopkeeper or a consumer; a landowner or a farmer; an office worker or a labourer; a woman or a man; a pensioner or a youth; a city dweller or someone living in our maritime or rural areas.
“I need you to believe in my goal for a united Fiji; a honest Fiji; a corrupt free Fiji; a Fiji where the poor no matter where or who they are, are taken care of; a Fiji where the rich are more generous; a Fiji where the Government is caring and loving, a just Fiji where no one is discriminated against.”
He said he wanted a new Fiji “where we have the basic amenities for everyone, jobs for all Fijians, an educated Fiji, a smart Fiji and a happy and successful Fiji for all Fijians.”
“My Government started this journey for a new Fiji… a Fiji where you Fijians are put first. We now have free education for all Fijian children. Our roads are being upgraded and new ones being built.
“More Fijians have access to electricity now than ever before.
“More Fijians have access to drinking water than ever before.
“Our youth are now given more opportunities through the scholarship programme and the tertiary education loan scheme.
“We now have pensions for those over the age of 70.
“We now have three universities all of them funded by the Fijian government. We have introduced new laws that protect and empower our women and children.
“ We are now giving more recognition and rights to Fijians with disabilities.
“My Government has ensured that iTaukei land now has actual and real protection for the first time so the iTaukei will always keep ownership of their land.”
