NFP plays a vital role, says Koya

"WE have tasted success, we have tasted defeat but we haven't been given an opportunity, we will never give up — we were there yesterday, we are here today, we will be there tomorrow."

These were the words of National Federation Party executive Faizal Koya in addressing party supporters at a meeting at the Girmit Centre in Lautoka yesterday.

Mr Koya was the latest inclusion into the party and while he hasn't made up a decision to become a party candidate in the September election, he believes NFP plays a vital role in the shaping and building of a better Fiji.

One of the main issues he raised to supporters were the concerns from our Fijian youths and how they could be looked into.

"We have had a lot of feedback from youths especially in the North and West voicing concerns that they need to have better facilities especially sporting ones," Mr Koya said.

"This is a sporting nation — all we need are better facilities to cater for these youths.

"Just imagine Jasper Williams High School has retained the Coke Games title, imagine if there are better sporting facilities available in the West as like in the Central Division.

"If you look at it on a larger scale, it's a good way to get these youths on track and keep them occupied in these facilities rather than lazing around and they even end up on the wrong side of the law."

Mr Koya said if such facilities were provided, youths would never associate themselves with drugs and some unlawful doings which may hinder their career.

"If we are given an opportunity to go into parliament, we will address these issues."
