Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama says by overcoming the adversity of last year, we showed that we are a people who are willing to sacrifice for our fellow citizens out of the love we hold for each other.

While giving his Easter Message, Bainimarama says while we are free of the worst of the pandemic, our commitment to those in need cannot wane.

He says on Easter last year, he asked us to walk a path of love and unity towards a Fiji that was better and safer than what we knew at that time.

Bainimarama adds guided by compassion and comforted by faith, we have arrived at that future.

The Prime Minister also says we now have the full freedom to live our lives, our economy is on the move, businesses are open, and jobs are returning.

He says these are blessings that he asks we welcome with gratitude and a generosity of spirit.

Bainimarama adds let us openly share our joy with those around us and support those who need us.

He further says let us wield our freedom wisely and safely and make special time for worship and reflection with our loved ones adding that above all, let us hold to the universal values that Jesus embodied in his life and ministry; for the progress of our recovery will mean little if we do not use it to aid and empower those most vulnerable.

The Prime Minister also says there is more good left to do – and he prays the spirit of love and compassion that carried us here will guide us this Easter and always.
