TUI Wainunu and chairman of the Bua Development Committee Ratu Orisi Baleitavea wants the people of Cakaunitabua to support government's plan in declaring Nabouwalu a town.
Ratu Orisi says people need to change their mindset and support the plan because it was for their own benefit.
"In order for this plan to eventuate, people need to support it," Ratu Orisi says.
"Villagers, chiefs and authorities need to come together to make Nabouwalu a town.
"The town would really enhance the lives of people in the area.
"Government departments, supermarkets and other businesses will be available in Nabouwalu and people won't have to travel all the way to Labasa or Savusavu to do their shopping."
