FORMER chairman of the Housing Authority and Commander of the Republic of Fiji Military Forces Brigadier-General Mosese Tikoitoga was yesterday treated to an afternoon of thanksgiving for his service to the HA and the Public Rental Board.
He was also congratulated by staff and board members for being selected to head the military forces.
Speaking to guests and staff members was chairman of the HA board Narendra Prasad who said he had big shoes to fill.
"This was a man who was dedicated, committed and focused at ensuring that at the end of the day, Fijians will be able to afford accessible and adequate housing as per Section 35 of the Constitution," Mr Prasad said.
He noted that under Brig-Gen Tikoitoga, the HA managed to assist some 309 families between 2011 and 2013 through its Social Housing Policy.
