Joseph Rodan Senior yesterday stressed the importance of having the right people as sports administrators

The Fiji Association of Sports and National Olympic Commiitee (FASANOC) president made the comment after the Fiji men’s and women’s volleyball teams were unable to participate at the Pacific Games in Papua New Guinea next month.

“After the Pacific Games we would like to see what’s happening because we want to help them.

Rodan was disappointed with Fiji Volleyball Federation president Elesi Ketedromo who failed to meet him to discuss the way forward.

“This is one problem we face in Fiji; people are there for themselves not for the sport and that will affect the players.

“Our chef de mission Cathy Wong has done everything to try and help them. I waited to meet with the president but she didn’t turn up. For me it tells me that she is not interested to send the team. That’s the indication of the kind of people that’s running the organisation,” Rodan added.

Ketedromo in a text message promised to reply in full at a later date.

Fiji National Sports Commission chairman Peter Mazey stressed the importance of proper planning and good governance.

“We know the game will be held every four years therefore we need to plan for four years,”Mazey said.
