The Nabua Rugby Club will be in charge of the new Nabua Resource Centre opened by Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama yesterday.

Nabua Rugby Club official Saiasi Fuli said this was a condition set by Mr Bainimarama when he approved the construction of the centre.

Mr Fuli said they had set up a committee and would work on a suitable fee to be levied to groups which want to hire the centre.

He said there were plans to install computers at the centre to help the students in their studies.

Mr Fuli said they were thankful to Mr Bainimarama for the new Nabua Resource Centre.

He said the revenue they got from the hire of hall, a meeting facility at the centre, would be used for the community.

Opening the centre yesterday, Mr Bainimarama said that it was not long ago the hall became a true hub for Nabua.

The building was always being used by the community.

Over the years, it served as a church, school and community meeting place.

“It will serve as a place for students to come and study, be tutored and take their examinations,” the Prime Minister said.

He said many of the young people of Nabua had gone on to make not just Nabua, but all of Fiji very proud.

“Many students (from Nabua) have gone on to show greatness at our tertiary institutions;  many ruggers from the Nabua Rugby Club have gone on to greatness in this field … this community, much like Fiji itself, punches above its weight.”

Mr Bainimarama said that was why  Government vowed to build the Nabua Community Centre bigger and better than it was before.

Government allocated over $320,000 for the construction of the project.

“Because we understood what it means to the more than 4000 Fijians who live along Sukanaivalu Road – those men and women who rely on it to hold church services, to conduct communal meetings, to plan for sporting events,” Mr Bainimarama said.

He said the people’s wait was officially over and he was confident the new Nabua Resource Centre would prove to be the worth it.
