Church affirms full support

FOLLOWING the conclusion of the election which was preceded by a controversial letter currently causing a rift between the new administration and the Methodist Church in Fiji, the church has expressed its willingness to work with the elected government.

At a press conference yesterday in Suva, general secretary Reverend Tevita Nawadra said he would be writing to Prime Minister Rear Admiral (Ret) Voreqe Bainimarama.

“I will be writing to the Prime Minister to affirm him of our earlier stance that we are willing to work together for the betterment of our beloved Fiji,” Mr Nawadra said.

“The church is beginning her new exodus, our Lako Yani Vou, just as our nation is embracing a new democracy.”

He said the church was optimistic of a good working relationship with the government in spite of the embarrassing issue which had caused a slight rift between the two parties.

“Unfortunately, this issue came in between us and we pray for our nation and our government that we will continue to work together.”
