Call for chiefs to lead wisely

Salaseini Moceiwai
Monday, March 31, 2014

THE government will continue to initiate developments in the country but there is a need for people to make returns on investments.

Acting Commissioner Northern Alipate Bolalevu conveyed this message to the chiefs of Bua during a capacity-building workshop in Dreketi on Friday.

He said it was important for the chiefs to take the lead role in leading their people to the right path.

Mr Bolalevu said government had done a lot for the people of Bua and it was only proper for them to take ownership and make use of available land and resources to improve their livelihoods.

He told the chiefs they were leaders appointed to lead and not managers to manage.

Mr Bolalevu said if chiefs changed their mind-set towards such developments, people would change.
