The FijiFirst Government has made life easier for people in the rural areas.

Turaga Na Tui Naceva Ratu Jona Nawakalukalu made the statement yesterday while thanking the Government for prioritising rural development.

Ratu Jona has been the Tui Naceva for the past 10 years.

According to him, there is no other government compared to the FijiFirst government when it comes to taking development to the grassroots level.

“I had always desired for better improvement in Naceva which I didn’t see any previous government do but when this government came into power it did so much,” he said.

“It approved the development of a road and jetty in Soso and the upgrade of our Agriculture and nursing stations.”

Tui Naceva voted for FijiFirst in the last election and continues to support the governing party in the lead up to the next general election this year.

Meanwhile, he also requested the Minister for Health and Medical Services Dr Ifereimi Waqainabete to enlighten them on the COVID-19 protocols in place for gatherings.

Tui Naceva revealed that there was a rift between nurses and villagers due to confusion on the protocols.

“We need something written in black and white to confirm the ease of restrictions which needs to come from the government to the district level and then to us.”

He said a pastor in Yavitu Settlement in Naceva was holding church services despite not being vaccinated.

Repeated reminders to the pastor of the fine in place for violation of the protocols and advisory from the nurse had fallen on deaf ears as the pastor claimed he had received approval from the Attorney-General.

“In the past we had always reported instances as such but we have stopped doing that because it  brings conflict in the village.”

In response Dr Waqainabete said he signed the legal notice on February 9, 2022 prohibiting those who are not vaccinated from entering businesses, traveling on boats and entering places of worship.

Only people who have received at least two doses of the vaccine are allowed to do so.
