Friday, January 17, 2014

PRESIDENT Ratu Epeli Nailatikau is now a member of the Order of St John of Jerusalem after an investiture at Government House on Wednesday.

Ratu Epeli was conferred the order by the Lord Prior, Professor Anthony Mellows.

Following the ceremony, Ratu Epeli said he was privileged to be invested into the order and that it was because of the sterling work of the organisation in Fiji.

"Even though I am the one who has the privilege of being invested, this is in recognition of the sterling work of St John Fiji and I know that this work will continue," he said.

During the investiture, Prof Mellows talked about the honour of being a part of the worldwide organisation and that it was an order of chivalry.

"Membership of the order is therefore an honour," he said.

"The order of St John is a working order which is actively engaged in works of charity." said Prof Mellows.
