Projects to go ahead

DEPARTING military commander Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama yesterday reminded the public his resignation would not affect government development plans for this year.

During his farewell church service as the head of the RFMF at the Sukanaivalu Barracks in Labasa, Commodore Bainimarama said all plans for the North and the country as a whole would continue.

"A lot of concerns have been raised about who will build the bridge in Bua or install the water tank in Kia.

"I want to inform you that nothing will change, it's just the leadership in the military.

"I also want to make clear that our journey forward will not change.

"This journey didn't change in the year 2000.

"It continued in 2006 and it will continue because it has brought good things to our nation.

"This is something I want to make people understand."

Commodore Bainimarama said he was happy to have met military families in the North for the last time as head of the RFMF.

He said the church service was not only an event to farewell him but also an opportunity for people to come together to socialise.

Commodore Bainimarama urged officers to maintain their leadership, look out for each other and maintain peace in the military.
