Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama says the patriotism of the people of Fiji has come out clearly this week as we prepare to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Fiji's Independence tomorrow.

Bainimarama highlighted this during the Ministry of iTaukei Affairs Independence Day celebrations. He says he remembers the celebration at Albert Park on the 10th of October 1970 as a young boy.

He says he remembers the great pride that was shared as a nation and the feeling of unity.

Bainimarama adds he remembers the great hope and potential that the people felt for the country but even behind all that excitement there was also a level of uncertainty and a feeling of anxiety.

The Prime Minister says as a human being it is natural for us to fear the unknown.

He says if we want to build a truly great nation, it would take hard work and resilience and it would also demand sacrifices.
