THE 21 districts in the Ba Province have agreed to give $500 each towards a four-day youth festival organised by the Ba Provincial Council youth committee.

The motion was put forward by council chairman Ratu Tevita Momoedonu after provincial youth representatives presented a traditional apology to the council during a meeting at Viseisei, Vuda, last week.

Ratu Tevita said a total of $10,500 would be given to the committee to assist in organising a youth festival in September.

Roko tui Ba Josefa Toganivalu said the committee had requested the assistance of the council in organising the festival.

"Previously, events they organised did not turn out well."
