Seruiratu assures Look North Policy 'will get better'

ASPIRING politician Lieutenant Colonel Inia Seruiratu wants to fulfil his vision of developing the North and improving the living standards of its people.

And winning in the upcoming election might just be his ticket to continue with the work he took part in for about three and half years when he was the Commissioner Northern from 2007 to mid 2011.

Lt-Col Seruiratu, a candidate of the FijiFirst party, was at Siberia in Labasa on Thursday night as part of his campaign drive.

He told about 50 supporters that the Northern Division was always a part of him.

"The North has always been a part of my life ever since I came to serve as the Commissioner Northern in 2007," Lt-Col Seruiratu said.

"I am always passionate about this division and it's always my intention to inject positive changes in terms of developments and improved living standards for its people.

"A lot has been said about the Look North Policy but let me tell you that it will get better.

"The policy was initiated in 2002 and since then, developments took place at a slow pace but when the Bainimarama government took over, opportunities and growth poured in continuously."
