Methodist Church of Fiji President, Reverend Ili Vunisuwai

Methodist Church of Fiji President, Reverend Ili Vunisuwai has called on the members of the Great Council of Chiefs to ensure that the new GCC will do the things that is intended to benefit the people.

He says the members should not forget why they are part of the council as they are there to represent their people.

Reverend Vunisuwai also highlighted that he was so emotional to be invited by the leaders of the religious bodies from the Hindu and Muslim faith, where they acknowledged what the Methodist Church in Fiji did in organising the reconciliation service.

He says this is a new dawn for Fiji.

Meanwhile, thousands have turned up to Bau to witness the return of the Great Council of Chiefs meeting after the indigenous body was disbanded in 2007.

Members of the government and foreign delegates are on the island to be part of this occasion.

GCC Chair and Minister for i-Taukei Affairs, Ifereimi Vasu escorted President Ratu Wiliame Katonivere to the meeting hall.

Prime Minister Sitiveni Rabuka, Deputy Prime Minister Manoa Kamikamica, Deputy Prime Minister Professor Biman Prasad, Deputy Prime Minister Viliame Gavoka, Attorney General Siromi Turaga, Minister for Home Affairs and Immigration Pio Tikoduadua, New Zealand High Commission Charlotte Darlow, members of Cabinet, political party representatives, foreign delegates and the diplomatic corps are at the opening ceremony.
