THE Vunivalu na Tui Namosi, Ratu Suliano Matanitobua, says the vanua of Namosi will not change despite the many developments taking place within the province and the nation.
Ratu Suliano thanked the vanua, the church and the government for working together in developing the Namosi Province.
He said the church had a significant role to play in providing spiritual guidance to the people of Namosi.
"The decision I made as the paramount chief in 2010 will remain unchanged, that all leaders from the province to put God first in whatever they do," Ratu Suliano said.
He added development of the vanua of Namosi must not wait for government but that the people must develop the vanua themselves.
"If we continue to wait for government to develop the province, we will not see any progress in the province. So we as the people of Namosi need to work on developing the province ourselves."
Ratu Suliano said government officials who were working within the province should be considered members of the Namosi province because they contributed to the major developments of the province.
He acknowledged the government's support in terms of developing and delivering services to the people of Namosi.
