We stand as a nation and rejoice together as one, says the Assistant Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, Vijay Nath.

During the Fiji Day celebration at Nasau Park, Levuka, yesterday Mr Nath said: “To all Fijians of Lomaiviti and especially our children, I thank you all for your effort in coming down to celebrate as a united community to commemorate Fiji’s 45th year of Independence here in the Old Capital where everything regarding today began.”

The celebration in the Old Capital saw the re-enactment of the signing of the Deed of Session in 1874.

This was witnessed by students from Levuka and Wakaya, the public, and some Government officials.

Mr Nath said the Fiji Day theme “Togetherness in Harmony for a Precious Fiji” was dedicated to celebrating our progress, expressing our patriotism and to promote our hope for the future.

“Our beloved nation has experienced rapid progress and development in spite of all the adversities that we have had to encounter along the way,” he said.

“We have managed to come through those challenges through our desire for unity,” he said.

Mr Nath said the nation deserves more support today (yesterday) as we have shown support for the Flying Fijians during the 2015 Rugby World Cup by wearing white and blue when Fiji is about to play.
