Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama says Fiji is one of the few countries in the world where a new school building can be safely opened for its students.

While opening the new building block at the Nadi Muslim Primary School, Bainimarama says even though we are safe from COVID-19, this pandemic has hit our economy very hard.

The Prime Minister adds even as we endure this difficult period, seeing our students able to study, attend classes, and be with their friends assures us that our future remains bright.

Bainimarama says he promises that hope shall never dim, because people can be certain that no matter how tough things get, his government’s promise of free education will always be fulfilled.

Bainimarama says Fijian students deserve that commitment from their Government adding they also know that Government alone can only do so much – they need partners who share their vision of a knowledge-based Fijian society; a Fiji where all Fijians can realise their dreams through education.

He adds he knows they have such a partner in the Fiji Muslim League, an organisation with a proud record of uplifting Fijians from all faiths and backgrounds, particularly in the arena of education and charitable work.

Bainimarama further says he has always believed Fiji’s success as a nation will be determined by how tightly we embrace the values of unity and togetherness adding he sees the potential of a united Fiji in the eyes of every one of our students.
