The government is focused on the best people for the right job in the Civil Service.
Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says they will put talented people in positions where they can do the most good for Fiji, regardless of religion and ethnicity.
“Let me tell you, when the waters stops running through your tap or the lights go out, do you care who the CEO or the engineer from WAF or FEA is? Do you care about the persons’ race, religion, or where they come from in Fiji? Or do you simply care about getting the water and electricity back on. All you want to know is whether or not they can do the job. All you want is that clean water in the tap and the lights to be on. For these services not to go out in the first place, you need well qualified CEOs and engineers. That is what matters. What about when your child is sick and needs an operation, will you care if the surgeon has the same religion as you? Or would you want the best doctor, no matter what religion they follow."
Sayed-Khaiyum says this the mentality that has built the Fiji we know today and it will continue to carry our country into a prosperous future.
