Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama will be visiting the Northern Division next month.

This was confirmed by Commissioner Northern Jovesa Vocea this week.

And the Inter-Faith Labasa group of the friendly North cannot wait to meet the Prime Minister to open their clean-up campaign.

The inter-faith groups involved in­clude the Salvation Army, Anglican, Methodist, Then India Sanmarga Ikya (TISI) Sangam, Macuata Muslim and the Catholic denomination.

Social Justice Committee leader Maciu Naviti said they wanted to keep Labasa clean.

“In April a committee was formed and we came up with a project and that is for a clean-up campaign during which we will also erect sign boards to raise awareness,” Mr Naviti said.

“We then visited different faith groups with our proposal and many of them were happy to be part of it.

“During the discussions we invited the divisional officer Macuata Asesela Biutiviti who will be the Government representative.”

Mr Naviti said the clean-up would be­gin around Labasa Town.

“We hope that the Prime Minister will unveil our first sign board. Labasa is our home and I want people to keep their surrounding clean,” he said.

“After the unveiling we will decide when the clean-up will start so that everyone can get involved. It might be at the weekend when everyone can par­take in this activity.”

The committee is hoping that more faith groups will join hands with them to keep Labasa clean.
