Villagers told to participate

RA provincial administrator Sitiveni Tavaga has urged people in Nakorotubu, Ra, to participate in developments occurring within the district.

Mr Tavaga said in order for major developments to take place in the district of Nakorotubu, people needed to be positive to changes and developments that may occur in the village or settlements.

"Some villages are finding it hard to adapt to changes particularly in development which has led to people responding late to projects," Mr Tavaga said.

"These late responses has led to no developments in some parts of the country."

"We have been trying to get a new secondary school established in Nakorotubu since it was a request from the people in the district to the Prime Minister himself during one of his trips to the province."

"But due to land lease issues with the landowners we have not been able to establish a new secondary school. We need the people to participate in order for the government to carry out such requests," he explained.

He said people needed to work closely with government so that various developments could take place.

Nayavutoka Village headman Pita Sokirewa Raiqisa said Nakorotubu needed new schools to cater for the district.
