NFP wants to lead the country

Monday, July 07, 2014

THE National Federation Party has urged voters to give the political party a chance to lead the country forward.

While addressing supporters in Lautoka yesterday, NFP executive Faizal Koya said history had shown NFP had never been given a chance to lead the country despite the party being the oldest in the country.

"NFP is the nation's first party," he said.

"We have to remind some young boys who have just come into the arena that we have been here for a while.

"We have tasted defeat and we have tasted success.

"History shows that since the 1970s, the party collectively gave us the opportunity to govern this country."

He said the party had always been a formidable opposition.

"We have always been a constructive party and we've never been a destructive party.

"We believe since our beginning in the 1970s, this is one of the most important elections since independence.

"This time around if people give us this opportunity and voters let us sit at the helm then they will see the difference.

"History has shown people gave the Alliance party the opportunity, SVT, SDL and FLP.

"In 1999, people were in the NFP sheds but we were never given the opportunity but this year we will get the opportunity to take this nation forward.

"We have a group of good people in our party and we want to serve the people."
