ONE VOICE, one constitution is the approach Bua youths are taking as they prepare their submissions for the Constitution Commission expected to visit the province next month.
Provincial youth co-ordinator Veresa Ceguadrau said his team would gather different views and opinions and put it together in a submission. He said consultations at the district level had started and a major issue highlighted was increased government support for farming programs.
"We are looking at a wide range of issues and our youths want more than anything, an increased support for their farms from helping them start to marketing their products. After returning from the Citizens Constitutional Forum workshop last week in Labasa, we discussed to have one set of submission from the youths of Bua.
"It is more powerful and empowers oneness with youths in Bua. So we will put together what we feel the new constitution should hold for us and for our future," Mr Ceguadrau said.
However, Mr Ceguadrau said youths could make individual submissions.
He said once the submission was put together, the youths would traditionally approach the Marama na Tui Bua, Adi Ana Lalanabaravi.
"We will inform her traditionally out of respect and Fijian protocol that we have put together a submission for the youths of Bua. When this is done, we will submit it to the commission that will be in Bua on the first week of next month," he said.
Mr Ceguadrau said about 15 youths from Bua attended the CCF workshop that was aimed at educating the community more about the constitution, what it should contain and how to make submissions.
