Minister for Education, Heritage, Culture and Arts Dr Mahendra Reddy has urged people of the North to be patient.

He was responding to a question from Macuata North representative Josateki Rokotovitovi.

Mr Rokotovitovi questioned why Cakaudrove had been deprived of a technical college during the Northern Division Educational Forum in Labasa yesterday.

“With regards to the technical college, we have one in Macuata and the second one in Wainikoro but my question is why deprive Cakaudrove,” Mr Rokotovitovi asked.

In response, Mr Reddy said “we need to take baby steps, as this year the first one for Macuata was opened in Naduna and next year we are opening another one at Wainikoro.”

He said it would go further to Cakaudrove at the end of next year.

“So definitely we are coming, so be patient as the ministry is focusing on the next two projects which is Wainikoro and Bua,” he said.

“The ministry is also looking at establishing hostel facilities which may come after next year,” Mr Reddy said.

Mr Reddy said the facilities would cater for students from outer islands.
