PRESIDENT Jioji Konrote says his dedication is towards serving the people of his nation.

This was his sentiment while speaking to students of Motusa Primary School in Rotuma during the planting of trees as part of the ‘4 million trees in 4 years’ campaign.

“I am here to serve and not to be served.

“I look forward to continue to serve our own people until the end of my term. When I took over the appointment as your President a few years ago, I reminded Government, the Vanua and the church that as President I am the chief servant of this nation,” Mr Konrote said.

“That’s probably why God did not allow me to come back to Rotuma after my service in the Fiji Military Forces. God had other plans for me and here I am serving my fellow Fijians with a purpose.”

More than one hundred students and their teachers welcomed the President and the First Lady with a devotion and hymn before the President embarked in planting of trees in the school compound with the joyful participation of the students of Motusa Primary School.
