No tension between government and RFMF

Outgoing RFMF Commander Brigadier General Mosese Tikoitoga has assured the nation the military is in a stable condition and there is no tension with the government.
Tikoitoga confirmed this at a press conference in Suva this morning.
‘’We have been in constant discussions with the Prime Minister on my resignation and we’ve decided to do it earlier rather than later and Naupoto and I have been discussing it over the last week and we might as well make the changes now il still be around doing induction and if there’s any clarification that’s needed on any of the issues developed over the last 12 months then I’m still around to discuss that rather than giving away the leadership and running away all of a sudden. But I’ll be around to help him when he needs it but he’s more than capable to run the RFMF’’.
Tikoitoga hasn’t confirmed his posting yet as government is still trying to get clearance from some embassies overseas.
Tikoitoga has resigned from the Military to pursue a new career in a diplomatic position – something that he’s new to.
He will begin his induction training with the Foreign Affairs Ministry from Monday next week as he admits he has a lot to learn before he leaves for his new mission overseas.
Tikoitoga has assured the nation that Acting Commander Commodore Viliame Naupoto will lead the RFMF to new heights and has the support of the military.
