Village profiling

Salaseini Moceiwai
Wednesday, April 23, 2014

BUA Provincial Council officials have so far visited 33 villages in the province as part of the council's profiling exercise.

And this week, they plan to cover seven other villages before completing the exercise with the remaining 14 villages in two weeks.

Senior assistant roko Jone Drugunalevu yesterday said the exercise was basically to collect basic information on all the people of the province.

"On average, we spend three to four hours in a village before moving to the next one," he said.

"We completed 33 villages early this year and now we are covering the other 21.

"This exercise is necessary because it helps us to record the basic information of the people of Bua."

Mr Drugunalevu said they were working closely with the villagers.

"We have a schedule for the visit and that's why we are working closely with them to complete it.

"We alert the villagers first before we visit them so they can spare themselves away from their daily work.

"If not, our trip won't be fruitful because the villagers might be engaged in other stuff. But so far the response from them is positive.

"We hope to complete this exercise in two weeks."
