Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama has issued a stern reminder that only Fijians who fulfill the requirements needed under government grants will be assisted.
This was highlighted by the Prime Minister during a talanoa session at Wailotua village in Wainibuka, yesterday.
Wailotua village headman Rusiate Rakubulou raised concerns that some villagers haven’t received assistance after requesting for the Seeds Grant under the TLTB worth more than $5,000.
Bainimarama has given his assurance that TLTB will check the applications, verify it and approve the applications that fulfilled the requirements.
He adds the government will only assist farmers who have already started farming.
The government last year allocated $200,000 for this grant while $320,000 has been allocated this year.
Bainimarama is calling on farmers not to take this opportunities for granted.
