Support For PM In Namosi

The people of Waivaka village in Namosi have given their total support to Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama and the FijiFirst Government.

Village headman Tobia Miliano said they would now benefit from all the developments in the village.

“Currently we have the pedestrian crossing that costs more than $320,000. Government has given $400,000 for the construction of a nurse’s quarter and improvements to the Waivaka Nursing Station and $2m for a new bridge, as we enter the road to Waivaka, now constructed by a local company,” he said.

Government, he said, had also helped villagers with farming equipment.

Mr Miliano said they were lucky to have a Prime Minister who cared for their welfare especially the children.

He said when he was elected headman of the village in 2007 he asked for the crossing.

In 2013 he said he received a letter from the Prime Minister’s Office that the crossing would be constructed.

He said it took only seven months for the work to be completed.

Mr Miliano said they made no contribution but helped with labour at no cost and prepared food for the workers.

He said when there was no crossing, a pregnant woman gave birth at the bus stop near the bridge as she waited to cross  to the nursing station.

He said they praised the FijiFirst Government.

No other Government, he said, had delivered in quick time like the Bainimarama Government.

He said Mr Bainimarama had stuck to his words in carrying out developments all over the country and yesterday it was their turn.

Mr Miliano said they were expecting the Tui Namosi and SODELPA MP Ratu Suliano Matanitobua to be at the function but he did not turn up.

The new crossing, he said, would help their children go to school.
