FORMER Land Bank director Samuela Naicegucegu hopes to better utilise his experience in the civil service and knowledge about land development in Fiji by contesting the upcoming polls.
The 57-year-old is a provisional candidate for the National Federation Party.
He was the former director of the Land Bank from 2012 to 2015. Mr Naicegucegu said he wanted to continue the services he has done by standing in this year’s general election. “I want to serve a wider range of the community and to a wider extent,” he said.
“It will also be a better utilization of my experience in the civil service.”
Mr Naicegucegu said he chose NFP because it was the longest serving political party in Fiji.
“All along the party has always maintained its principles and throughout its leadership, it has contributed to the welfare of the people, nation building and socially and economy as well.”
Apart from the issues that the party will be focusing on, Mr Naicegucegu said he hopes to also work on improving the provisions for land development and land utilisation in Fiji. “Also I hope to focus of data and information issues,” he said.
“I live in the village and I will also be focusing on some social issues that people in the villages are facing.”
Mr Naicegucegu said he was also confident that he would get the support to earn him a seat in Parliament. The election date for this year’s general election is yet to be released.
