"WE have little to fear from opportunists in the country who were adept at leading us astray with their messages of hate and intolerance in the past."

This was the message relayed by the chairperson of Leadership Fiji, William Parkinson, as another group of participants joined the LF Alumni after their graduation on Friday night.

Mr Parkinson said the core thinking behind the formation of the organisation was to equip a group of leaders with the basic principles and skills required to deliver good governance through their program. A total of 24 participants from diverse backgrounds were handed certificates by Sashi Karan, the founder and director of the Foundation for Rural Enterprises N Development รน FRIEND.

Mr Parkinson revealed more countries across the Pacific had begun to show interest in the Leadership Fiji model.

"In collaboration with the Pacific Leadership Program, Daryl (Tarte, founding director) has played an active role in assisting Leadership Samoa to get up and running," he said.

Ilaitia Tuinamoala was awarded the Most Outstanding Leadership FIJI Alumni graduate at the event.
