He adds that the provincial council meeting should be used as a platform to plan for a future that benefits the youth and the upcoming generation.

“Today, I want to draw attention to the importance of collaboration between Vanua, the church, and the government. I’ve been advocating this concept everywhere I go, and the core of it is the well-being of the people of this nation. The benefit of it will be reflected in the improvement of the family unit, which will overflow into a more stable Tokatoka, which will, in turn, create a more robust yavusa, a more determined village focus, and a more effective and progressive province.”

The province of Nadroga/Navosa comprises 22 districts, each integral to the overall development and progress of the community.
