Editorial: Doting Father Image Pays Off

The expression of delight on the faces of children who received the new Early Childhood Education buildings from the Government last week was evident.

Moreso;  on the villagers and parents of these happy children in the rural areas.

Mataweilevu, Barotu and Nailawa villages in Ra and Koronubu and Vatulaulau in Ba were recipients of these ECE Centres.

The centres, built at a cost of $148,000 each, showed the commitment of Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama and his Government on their drive to give all Fijians the opportunity for education.

The main purpose is to have an educated society for the future which transitions into prosperity for all.

The portfolio of the Minster of Education, which was left vacant following the resignation of Mahendra Reddy, could not have been vested on a better person than Mr Bainimarama.

His love for children stemmed from the 19 grandchildren; he and his wife Mary love so dearly.

Mr Bainimarama did not hide that when he told the Fiji Sun in an interview.

This was clearly indicated when he was with the children of these three villages and settlements.

Wherever he was he would be seen talking to children.

Surely that is satisfying to note – knowing that our Prime Minister Bainimarama loves children and goes out of his way to provide a better life for all the children in Fiji.

It sends a clear signal to all parents that the country is in safe hands with a person who is a doting father and grandfather.

While leading Fiji, he has indicated that the children are the top priority and it was if the children of Fiji were his own and he wanted the best for them.

Perhaps the indication of this stance; has translated into the popularity of his governing style demonstrated by the latest poll results which sets him way ahead of the Opposition party leaders; Sitiveni Rabuka of the Social Democratic Liberal Party and Biman Prasad of the National Federation Party.

The results of the survey should be sending alarm bells to the opposition parties and sending them to their headquarters for more strategies to improve their ranking with the voters.

This indication is all about the style of leadership and the image of a doting father or patriarch is hard to erase from the minds of the public.
