The Tui Nalawa, Ratu Epeli Niudamu, said he never regretted voting for the FijiFirst Government because they have benefited from its diligent work.

“They listen to everyone rich or poor, young or old and always have the time to try and help,” Ratu Epeli said.

“Today, I speak for everyone that we are very grateful to the PM and his team for being able to keep his word with ‘no one gets left behind’.”

Ratu Epeli was speaking at the commissioning of the Nausori Crossing in Nalawa, Ra, yesterday by the Prime Minister, Voreqe Bainimarama.

Also commissioned were the Savusavu Crossing and electrification of Nausori Village.

Mr Bainimarama was accompanied by the Minister for Health and Medical Services, Ifereimi Waqainabete, Minister for Lands and Mineral Resources Jone Usamate, Minister for Women, Children and Poverty Alleviaiton Mereseini Vuniwaqa, Assistant Minister for Rural Development Jale Sigarara and Government officials.

350 villagers of Nausori received electrification.

Also, more than 20 villages are now able to use both crossings.

Turaga-ni-Koro of Nawairuku Waisea Nagonelevu said they were grateful to the Prime Minister and his Government for being able to construct the bridge in a timely manner.

“We lost the Savusavu Crossing in 2016 during TC Winston.

“Since then the Government has helped us by arranging with Fiji Roads Authority to build a temporary crossing we could use while they built this one.

“So many villages will now benefit from these crossings, especially our children and women.

“We are grateful to the Government for always helping the people of Ra.”
