VOREQE Bainimarama made a promise that he would take Fiji to the first genuine democracy in Fiji’s history and he believes he has kept that promise because of the support of the Fijian people.
Next week, his democracy journey will begin when he will travel to New York to attend the United Nations General Assembly.
“There, I will tell the world what we have just accomplished in Fiji,” he said proudly.
“It will be a landmark occasion.
“Because I promised the nation of Fiji and the international community that I would take Fiji to the first genuine democracy in our history and I have kept that promise, thanks to the support of the Fijian people.
“But this is not the end of the journey.
“It is only the beginning. Today we rededicate ourselves to making Fiji great, the pre-eminent Pacific Island nation and one respected the world over.
“It is a future that we owe our young people. It is a future that we owe ourselves.”
With God’s blessing, Rear Admiral (Ret) Bainimarama proudly told people that better days lie ahead.
He said there had never been a better time to be Fijian.
“Because we have never been more united or more committed as Fijians to finally fulfilling our destiny.
“As you know, FijiFirst has won the general election and I will lead the new government to serve the nation.
“I’m deeply honoured and humbled that the Fijian people have put their trust in me to lead them into our new and true democracy. I give you my absolute promise that we will govern for the wellbeing of all Fijians.”
