THE late Reverend Tuikilakila Waqairatu was a man who stood firm on his beliefs, said Pastor Poate Mata of the Assembly of Christian Churches (ACCF).

The head of the Fiji Pentecostal Church delivered the ACCF eulogy and referred to the late president as taciqu (brother).

He said Dr Waqairatu was a smart man who had a vision and made sure he worked towards this vision.

"Talatala Tui was a man of integrity and principle and someone who stood firm on what he believed," said Mr Mata.

"He was a man of integrity and he loved to work with his fellow Christian brothers in the fight for the truth in the work of God.

"Dr Waqairatu was a man full of wisdom and knowledge, of faith and unity, and a man of vision.

"He was a leader, and a bold one. We have lost a true leader who was a good role model."

Mr Mata said ACCF lost a mentor and he pleaded with all church leaders to continue his legacy â€" the unity of all Christian churches.

Mr Mata also acknowledged the contribution of Joana, the wife of Dr Waqairatu, for standing by a true man of God for without her, he wouldn't have fulfilled his calling.
