The University of Fiji Stu­dents Association meeting with the UniFiji Council and stakeholders to resolve out­standing issues was a success, says association president Ratu Sailosi Raimoqe Dawai.

The meeting which took place at the UniFiji campus in Samabula yesterday was also attended by Permanent Secretary for Educa­tion, Alison Burchell, and mem­bers of the Arya Pratinidhi Sab­ha of Fiji.

Ratu Sailosi said the outcome of the meeting was much more than what he had expected.

“There is only about five per cent of the matters left to be re­solved and we are progressing towards it,” he said.

“I cannot say what those mat­ters are because of confidential­ity reasons but there are actually investigations and strategies that have started off from today and we will get the results in about a month’s time.

“We had a visit from the own­ers of the University which is the Arya Pratinidhi Sabha of Fiji and they voiced their concerns and proposed some strategies that were welcomed by the Coun­cil members to solve some of the unresolved issues.”

The student body had also called on some executives to step aside to allow investigations into com­plaints on alleged breach of gov­ernance rules.

Speaking on this, Ratu Sailosi said it was decided in the meet­ing that the people in question would be investigated.

“We actually have the man­date from the highest authority body of the University of Fiji which is the Council in support of the Arya Pratinidhi Sabha who have said that their con­ducts will be investigated and that is what we were hoping for,” he said.

When approached for com­ments, UniFiji Council chair­person Anil Tikaram asked to send questions to his email.

The questions remained un­answered when this edition went to press.
