Significant success for 10

HAVING an opportunity to lead and having the ability to order someone does not necessarily make anyone a leader.

Fiji Military Forces commander Brigadier General Mosese Tikoitoga made this comment to 10 officers who were commissioned during the officer cadet graduating class parade at Queen Elizabeth Barracks yesterday.

Brig-Gen Tikoitoga said the officers were ready to take their place in the RFMF and with that, were entrusted with a solemn responsibility to lead men and women to defend the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Fiji.

"The last nine and a half months have not been the easiest for your loved ones on parade today, and of course the young gentlemen before you should be very proud," Brig-Gen Tikoitoga said.

"The 10 young men on parade have been trained and moulded in all military aspects and became officers of the RFMF."

He said those officers had survived a gruelling and tough military training and they had proven their resilience and determination.

"In successfully completing this officer's cadet course, you can consider it a significant accomplishment.

"Convincing people to do things and to follow you comes from respect and each of you in this graduating parade is here because you have all demonstrated the potential of being an officer and a leader."
