Walking the talk

Savenaca Vakaliwaliwa, Suva | Thursday, January 18, 2018
Despite all the opposition powers ganging up on the PM and our current FijiFirst Government in the ATS saga, I believe that our current Prime Minister has walked the talk and delivered what he has promised to the nation as a whole.

We are just a couple of months away from the general election and right now, I believe, we see opposition political leaders trying to "sleep with their enemy", just to get in power.

But seriously, when we sit down and consider what the current Government has promised, done and achieved for all Fijians; we can only conclude that it has done a lot and that our PM when weighed in the balance with other possible leaders, our PM is still the one.

Tukai Lagonilakeba said it all, "I believe the majority of ordinary Fijians from the remotest of our maritime islands and the interiors of Viti Levu, Vanua Levu with those from the informal settlements and major squatter settlements do not pay attention to political rhetoric but are grateful to the government of the day for providing and giving them access to good health facilities, connection to clean drinking water, new bridges and new upgraded roads and drainage, the many river dredging now being undertaken, free education grants and bus fares, TELS for equal access to all our local Fijian tertiary institutions, government subsidy on electricity, water, medicine, social welfare and poverty alleviation, investments and job creation, they are forever grateful to the availability and easy access to medical facilities and surgeries that are now made available here at home at an affordable price with government subsidies as opposed to the very expensive overseas evacuations for the same treatment and many more" (FT 17/1).

No person or leader or government is perfect but we should continue to pray for God to choose the best leader to lead our beloved nation.

Our current PM got the heavenly nod last time around and I believe that right now, he is still the best pick with the divine anointing and appointment.
