FijiFirst party leader and Prime Minister Voreqe Bain­imarama says the future of our children is high on his priority list.

He told people at Dreketi District School, Nakorovou, Rewa, that their vote on the November 14 Gen­eral Election will decide their chil­dren’s future.

“One of my main concerns is the children of Fiji. Our vote will de­cide whether we will move forward or go back,” he said.

“We must decide the future of our children.”

Mr Bainimarama made the re­marks on the back of Government initiatives like free school fees, free bus fares and free milk and Weet-Bix, TELS and Toppers.

“We will ensure that no one is left behind. Before there were peo­ple that moved forward and others were left behind,” he said.

“But this is a journey where we all move forward together,” Mr Baini­marama said.

“We must ensure that our children are our main priority. I don’t want to take our children back to 1987 or 2000. We must move forward. We want to bring blessings to our chil­dren.”

He said he always advised his team to never lie about the figures and facts when talking to people.

He said this was because if they lied than they would continue to lie.

“I don’t want that,” Mr Bainima­rama said.

He said he was shocked when he heard about claims that our iTaukei land would be taken from us just like what the Opposition politicians said in 2014.

He said they ensured 2013 Consti­tution protected iTaukei land.

He said there would be people who would say otherwise.

“But you should open your Consti­tution and have a look at it yourself.

“Everything is in the Constitu­tion. In 2014, I decided to fight for the bread and butter issues and my Government started this even be­fore the election.”

Mr Bainimarama added that it was his Government that brought policies which benefitted everyone in Fiji.

A villager asked Mr Bainimarama about rumours that the money the Government was using for the in­frastructure in the country was from China.

He also asked if Fiji would be tak­en if the debt was not paid.

Mr Bainimarama said Fiji had taken loans not only from China.

He said there was no way Fiji would be taken because of a debt that the country owed.

He also said that the United States was China’s biggest debtor.
