FORMER Native Lands Commission (NLC) chairman Ratu Viliame Tagivetaua has called on the chiefs of Bua on Vanua Levu to lead their people wisely in the right direction.

Speaking as a representative of the Bua Valelevu clan during the province's bose vanua on Wednesday, Ratu Viliame said it was important for the chiefs to have good leadership.

He said it was important to prioritise the opinions of those under their leadership.

Ratu Viliame said it was about time they addressed issues honestly with the people.

With the modern era, he said chiefs needed to guide their people in the right direction with love and understanding.

He also reminded them that they were few in numbers compared to the people they led and it was, therefore, important for them to strengthen their relationship through constant communication and dialogue.
