Hidden Paradise Turns Out for PM

FijiFirst has taken its campaign to Savusavu to win the hearts and minds of the people of the Hidden Paradise.

Residents turned out on Monday afternoon to hear party leader Voreqe Bainimarama explain their policies and his vision for a new Fiji.

The campaign drew a large crowd as Mr Bainimarama highlighted his Government’s Look North Policy and its achievements.

Mr Bainimarama promised to improve conditions for people selling agricultural produce on roadside stalls in urban, peri-urban and rural areas.

“We have now nine days from the election and less than a week from the media blackout.

“As I keep saying, it is a simple choice between the future and the past, embracing the united, prosperous future that I am offering the nation,”  Mr Bainimarama said.

Mr Bainimarama also urged Savusavu  residents to turn their backs on those who caused many of Fiji’s problems in the past and still peddle their message of suspicion and hate.

“They are trying to tell you that the iTaukei are threatened when in fact, the opposite is true and we have never been stronger or more proud,” Mr Bainimarama said.

“Our ownership of 91 per cent of the country’s land is guaranteed in our Constitution; our freedom to be Christians and follow Jesus Christ is also guaranteed.

“So I ask you: How are we threatened? The answer is we are not. It is a big lie to try to spread fear when there is no reason for iTaukei to fear anything.”

“We are strong, we are proud and to say that we need protection is an insult because it demeans us as a people.” Mr. Bainimarama added.
