Throw your political affiliations out the door and focus on the people of this country.

This was the message highlighted by the Minister for Infrastructure, Transport, Disaster Management, Jone Usamate to the Fiji Meteorological Service executive members after touring their headquarters in Nadi on Monday.

He reminded them that the people of Fiji expected them to do a good job.

“Throw your political affiliations out the door and focus on what needs to be done, focus on the people of this country, they expect you to deliver a good job,” Mr Usamate said.

“I am here as your minister, I am not going to be one to come around and  tell you what to do because you have people who know what needs to be done.”

Mr Usamate said he visited the weather station in Vunisea last week and it was in a poor state.

“Last week I was in Vunisea, that weather station is in a very poor state and the work is not progressing well,” he said.

He added that the function of the organisation depended on how well their job was done.
