The Government roadshow on the island of Gau has been labelled a success.

Commissioner Eastern Division, Luke Moroivalu, said the people of Gau were able to access the different type of services offered by Government and partners present which they normally travelled to Suva to access.

“The roadshow is to bring Government services closer to the people. We also have the private sector here in Qarani,” Mr Moroivalu said.

Students from the various primary schools in Gau also converged at the Qarani village grounds to take advantage of the road show.

Vione Primary School acting Head teacher Netani Tikoisuva said the road show provided the students with the much needed information that they long to see and hear.

“Most of our students have not been to Suva, so for them coming to the road show is like going to Suva. The road show also enabled them to think about their future and the careers they would like to pursue when they leave school,” Mr Tikoisuva said.

Unaisi Waqa, who is married in Lekanai village commended the roadshow. She was at the Qarani village ground to seek medical services.

“With this roadshow I was able to get my medicine and also health advice,” Ms Waqa said.

Waisea Dausiga, of Malawai village, said the roadshow was the first on the island.

“I want to acknowledge Government for bringing services closer to maritime Fijians. Most of the time we have to travel to Suva which is very costly just to access these services. So the roadshow in Qarani is great,” Mr Dausiga said.

More than 20 agencies were at the Qarani village grounds to showcase the different services they have to the people of Gau.
