Soldiers pledge support

Salaseini Moceiwai
Monday, February 17, 2014

MILITARY personnel in the Northern Division have given their assurance of support for the next army commander.

The soldiers gave this undertaking to their outgoing commander during a church service at the Sukanaivalu Barracks in Labasa yesterday.

In his speech, barracks officer in charge Major Penesio Mamao said while it was a sad moment for the military families to witness the departure of a good leader, they were also thankful for Commodore Bainimarama's leadership.

Major Mamao said: "We just want to assure you, sir, that the support we once showed you will also be shown to your successor."

"We hope that you will not forget us here in the North and also our requests in terms of our work that we will bring to your attention.

"We are at peace because we know that this farewell doesn't mean that you are moving away to another place, it's just a change in position.

"We hope that our relationship will remain intact."

Commodore Bainimarama encouraged the soldiers to continue their good work.

He also reiterated the need to maintain the relationship the soldiers have formed among themselves.
