PRESIDENT Ratu Epeli Nailatikau stayed true to his word when he completed his 30-kilometre walk for Earth Hour yesterday.
Ratu Epeli had challenged five corporations, five non-governmental organisations and five government departments to visibly implement an action which would benefit the environment.
In return, he would walk 30kms through Suva if they answered his call ù and answer they did with more than 20 organisations throwing their support behind him.
Ratu Epeli, who started his walk in the wee hours of yesterday, was joined by members of the disciplined forces, corporate houses, government ministries, NGOs and members of the public.
"There is only one person who should complete this walk, and that is me because it's my challenge, I must complete it so others can complete their own challenges," Ratu Epeli told those who joined him for the walk.
"You should enjoy the walk and for some of you, you might see parts of Suva that you have not seen in a long time," he said.
World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) communications officer Theresa Ralogaivau said more than 500 people joined the walk.
