Submit reports on time

VILLAGE headmen within the districts of Dreketi, Seaqaqa and Macuata were yesterday reminded of the timely submission of their reports during a meeting at Seaqaqa Police Station.

Roko Tui Macuata Sitiveni Lalibuli said the meeting was focused on the need for village headmen to play their part and tune themselves and the villages under their responsibilities to the development beat of government.

Mr Lalibuli said village headmen often submitted their reports every three weeks but sometimes these reports came in late.

"We are aware of the government's intention for the North in regards to development and this means that these reports are important," Mr Lalibuli said.

"I had told headmen from the three districts that their report is important so that the provincial office could gauge their next move in terms of addressing issues from villages.

"Village heads have also been told to submit their village plans for this year to make our work with them easier."

Mr Lalibuli said they had also begun talks on the formation of a crime prevention board for the three districts.

"This is due to the need for police officers to work closely with settlements and villages in their policing program.

"Again village heads will play a major role in ensuring that their villages were accessible to these services.

"Tomorrow we will be heading up to Nadogo before we end our meetings with village headmen in the Labasa area."
