A PROPOSAL made at the Bua Provincial Council meeting last month to have one of its meetings held in Suva this year has not gone down well with chiefs.
The bose vanua of Bua chiefs held on Friday did not endorse the idea of having a council meeting in Suva at the end of this year.
Tui Vuya Ratu Amenatave Rabona questioned why a provincial council meeting should be held in Suva when it involved developments and progress of the province of Bua and not Suva.
He said members of the council meeting lived in Bua and taking them across to Suva would mean more expenses and work for the vanua.
At last month's provincial council meeting held at Nabouwalu, most of the chiefs did not turn up except for Buli Dama and Tui Kubulau.
The chiefs' absence was believed to have been over an alleged disagreement between them and the council on funding.
This resulted in the council members presenting their isoro to the chiefs asking for the chiefs' forgiveness before the provincial council meeting started last month.
Bua Provincial Council chairman Alipate Radrodro preferred not to comment as he was not present at the meeting of chiefs held at Bua loma ni koro.
Bose vanua secretary and Tui Wainunu Ratu Orisi Baleitavea said the chiefs did not endorsed the proposal.
