Return our land: Nausori land owners
February 1, 2018 7:03 pm
The landowners of Nausori are pleading with the government to return the land which the old Nausori market, the Police station and the post office sits on.
Komai Nausori, Ratu Lepani Tagicakibau says the land was initially given verbally to government during the Colonial days to be used as a government station.
However, Tagicakibau says they’re not happy on how the land is being used to date.
“Because now all the government ministries are now scattered all over the town, and we are still asking government to allow us to develop the land and if they need us to build a government building for one stop shop for all government services, we are willing to do it, but the other one is now with government.”
Tagicakibau says the proposed project by landowners will also help the public access all government services from a central location.
Komai Nausori hopes the land will be returned to them since it’s a native grant lease.
