A-G: Take up education

FIJIANS need to now take up education with an upfront attitude, says Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.

Speaking at the Ahmadiyya Muslim Secondary School prizegiving ceremony in Voloca, Dreketi yesterday, Mr Sayed-Khaiyum told parents that with free education from next year, they had more left in their pockets.

"What you do with that money is your own business," he said.

"Education will be free in the coming year since parents will not waste their money on school fees apart from the cost of uniforms and children's stationery.

"Government has a duty of providing enablers for the people of this country and this government will ensure that people do not have any excuses when it comes to their own development."

The A-G called on the students of the school and the people of the area to reach forth and make use of opportunities the government was making for people.

"Development is being brought right to your individual doorsteps and it is there for you to use. As the leaders of tomorrow, it is your duty and right to reach out and make full use of these opportunities."
