No ride, officials walk

GOVERNMENT officials facing transport problems in the Bua Province will soon have their troubles addressed.

Prime Minister Rear Admiral Voreqe Bainimarama heard from villagers in the province that it was difficult for police officers in Nabouwalu to get around because they had no vehicle.

A villager told Rear Admiral Bainimarama that reports could not be attended to on time because the officers did not have transport.

Another Nabouwalu resident, Amelia Cakau said officials from the Ministry of Social Welfare also found it hard to get around to the 54 villages.

She said she had witnessed the civil servants walk about one and half kilometres to get to some of the villages.

Mrs Cakau also showed concern with the condition of the roads in Bua.

Responding to the concerns, the PM said a team from his office led by his permanent secretary Lieutenant Colonel Pio Tikoduadua would return to Bua next Wednesday to address these issues.
