It is a historic moment for the iTaukei Land Trust Board as they unveiled the Ratu Sukuna Monument today.

Manager Strategic Planning Change Management Innovation, Reijeli Taylor says the unveiling of the monument marks a very significant event because over the past 16 years, they were not able to come out and celebrate the life of Ratu Sir Josefa Lalabalavu Sukuna because of what the previous government had initially mentioned.

Taylor says every year they have internal celebrations to remind them about Ratu Sukuna as he played a very important part in Fiji’s development and he was also the founder of the TLTB.

She says the monument of Ratu Sukuna was removed by the previous government.

She says TLTB has served the nation for 83 years.

Turaga na Tui Suva Ratu Sanaila Mudunavosa encouraged the staff of TLTB to continue to serve the nation to build a better Fiji.
