Staff of Lekutu district office in Bua will now be able to send timely reports during natural disasters.

This is because they received a vehicle from the Minister for Defence, National Security and Policing, Rural and Maritime Development and Disaster Management Inia Seruiratu last Sunday.

Three staff members based at the office used to seek transportation assistance from the Bua Provincial Office in Nabouwalu to look after villages and settlements in the district of Bua, Lekutu and Navakasiga.

This was the first time their office received a vehicle.

While presenting the vehicle to Provincial Administrator Bua Jone Manueli, Mr Se­ruiratu said it would be based at the Government station in Lekutu.

“This assistance is very important in terms of our support to the team on the ground and most importantly improving services to our rural people,” he said.

“Our ministry is focused on providing best services to our people in rural areas mak­ing sure that no one is left behind.”

He said there was a lot to be done in Vanua Levu, including Bua.

“This vehicle would bring much relief to the staff in Bua as now they will be in a bet­ter position to look after the people in their areas,” he said.

“And perhaps also assist in the borders of Macuata as well.”

He added he was grateful to present the ve­hicle on behalf of the ministry and Govern­ment.
