A series of progressive development projects at Nabiti Village in Dreketi, Macuata, could see a shift in allegiance toward the FijiFirst Party in the 2022 General Election.

This was indicated by the village headman, Tevita Rokoqica.

He said the village was a Social Democratic Liberal Party (SODELPA) stronghold in the 2018 General Election.

The two life-changing developments were the installation of 64 field latrines and finally getting connected to the Energy Fiji Limited (EFL) electricity grid in April.

According to the Fijian Elections App (FEO) app, SODELPA member and  Member of Parliament, Mosese Bulitavu, won a majority of the votes from that region(141/173).

This accounted for 81.5 per cent of the total votes cast.

Mr Rokoqica said their elderly population, adult and youth were leaning more towards the FijiFirst Government heading to the polls this year.

“Our people on the ground have seen the effort made by Government in ensuring our basic necessities were met and people’s lives improved for the better,” he said.

“From my view, my people will place a tick for the FijiFirst Party in this election because they delivered the resources our people needed,” he said.

“Getting electricity in our village was a dream come true for our people because of the many benefits it had on our children’s education and our village’s prosperity.”

Mr Rokoqica appreciated the Government’s assistance in ensuring our people had the two of the most basic necessities of proper waste management and electricity at their disposal.

“We still cannot believe that our village now has power available to every household which was possible only through this Government,” he said.

The 37-year-old was impressed the FijiFirst Party made fewer promises but acted more efficiently on the ground to improve the lives of ordinary Fijians.

He mentioned that some villagers were still in support of other parties and parties such as The People’s Alliance (PA) party had already conducted small-scale campaigns in their village.

Mr Rokoqica further requested for road maintenance and tar sealing of the road leading to the village so that their transportation issues could be solved.

“To the people of the vanua and the Northern Division, we need to stand up and support the Government because through its leadership our people benefitted,” he added.
