Prime Minister Voreqe Baini­marama will be the chief guest at this year’s first Tai­levu Provincial Council meeting at Nauluvatu Village in Nakelo.

Newly-appointed council chair­man, Acting Deputy Commissioner of Police (ADCP) Rusiate Tudra­vu, said the chiefs of Tailevu had agreed that full traditional ceremo­nies of welcome would be accorded to the chief guest.

He said they were aware that Mr Bainimarama would be away at the Commonwealth Heads of Govern­ment Meeting (CHOGM) in London.

Mr Tudravu said the meeting would be from April 26 to 27 at Nauluvatu Village, a day after the Prime Minister’s arrival from the CHOGM.

“He will return to the country on April 25,” he said.

Mr Tudravu said after the Fiji Corrections Service Tailevu Yel­low Ribbon Project Symposium at Novotel Convention Centre on April 4, the chiefs of Tailevu were concerned that majority of inmates were from the province.

The province, he said, formed the Tailevu Carer to support inmates released by the Fiji Corrections Service.

“Carer stands for care and reha­bilitation,” he said.

Mr Tudravu said members would again be briefed on the Tailevu Car­er and all villages would be encour­aged to form theirs.

One of the things the council would be engaged in was to look at the skills of the released inmates and find jobs for them.

The chairperson said all villages in Tailevu would be united in the prevention of criminal activities in the province. Acting DPC Tudravu said the council would discuss and pass its 2018-2019 Budget at the meeting in Nakelo.
