Family is the source of our nation’s greatest strength.
Strong families build strong communities which strengthens the nation as a whole.
This was the message delivered by the Prime Minister Honourable Josaia Voreqe Bainimarama while officiating at the Ra Provincial Council meeting in Nanukuloa this morning.
“I don’t only work to realise that commitment when leading as Prime Minister, I strive to live out that mantra in my own life on a daily basis,” he said.
“While many see me first and foremost as Fiji’s Prime Minister, to me, my primary role is being a father. I care about my wife, children, and grandchildren; they, and all the children of Fiji, are what has driven my relentless pursuit to make our beloved nation a better place. They, with my service to God and county, are my life.
“Strong families create citizens with strong moral foundations – citizens who adhere to our highest values, citizens who care for their fellow Fijians, and citizens who we can entrust with securing our nation even greater successes in the years ahead.”
The Prime Minister added that his government is covering the absolute essentials for every Fijian family.
“So, when you sit down for dinner, you don’t need to think about affording to send your child to school. You don’t need to question whether or not the authorities can reach you in times of crisis,” PM Bainimarama said.
“You can think bigger. You can plan out your success over a longer term. You can empower yourselves by taking your stake in our growing economy. When you do that, you benefit and your nation benefits as a whole.”
