Signature drive plan

PRIME Minister and aspiring politician Rear Admiral Voreqe Bainimarama says he will extend his signature drive for his proposed Fiji First party in the next few weeks.

Rear Admiral Bainimarama made the comment at the opening of the Bagasau Nurses Duplex Quarters in Cakaudrove yesterday afternoon.

He said the extension of his drive was necessary to register people who did not have the opportunity to give in their names last week while he was on tour through the Northern Division.

"I know I've said that I would be finishing up my registration drive in April 22, but I had so many people saying they hadn't had the opportunity to register on my list," he said.

"I will give them a chance to do so. This will continue in the next few weeks."

Some villagers of Cakaudrove also requested Rear Admiral Bainimarama to visit them as an aspiring politician because they were willing to register with his proposed party.

Rear Admiral Bainimarama said that was the whole reason he was extending his signature drive.
