Party General Secretary Seni Nabou

The National Federation Party says the true colours of the FijiFirst Party are now coming to light as they do not know what they are doing, and now they are lashing out with lies to cover up their incompetence.

In a statement, Party General Secretary Seni Nabou says they have no civil servants to help them now, and all their business cronies have abandoned them.

She says their former Attorney-General, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, fell into a trap under the very Constitution he wrote, and their leader, Voreqe Bainimarama, gets more frustrated.

Nabou says Bainimarama appointed Sayed-Khaiyum to the Constitutional Offices Commission, and Sayed-Khaiyum forgot that this disqualified him as a Parliamentarian, and out he went.

She adds that the FijiFirst Party had stated this was a strategy for Sayed-Khaiyum to work “outside Parliament”, but he again forgot the law.

The General Secretary says as a Public Officer, he could not be the secretary of FijiFirst, so now they have changed course again, and the former Attorney General will leave the Constitution Offices Commission.

She says this is the quality of legal advice the Fiji Government rested on for 16 years, and this is one reason why Fiji is in such a mess now.

Nabou says Bainimarama is frustrated, so he now claims that the Constitution is being undermined.

She further says Bainimarama offers no evidence, and he complains that “Fijians are living in fear of losing their jobs”.

Nabou questions Bainimarama about which Fijians and which jobs.

She says if things are really so bad, and Sayed-Khaiyum is so badly needed, perhaps he should get on a plane and return to Fiji.

Nabou adds the Party was born after the 2006 military coup, and its only ideology is spending Government money to win votes.

The Party General Secretary says FijiFirst should take the time to learn about life in Opposition.

We have sent questions to Sayed-Khaiyum and Bainimarama.
