Stand proud, stand tall, you have gone through the mill, you have done your training, you should be proud that you now wear that uniform and the nation looks to you to look after those that come in here for corrections, and to be reabsorbed back into society.
Prime Minister Sitiveni Rabuka stated this as he officiated at the Fiji Corrections Service pass-out parade in Naboro.
Rabuka says they celebrate their achievements as they watch and witness their performance on parade this morning.
He also says they demonstrated the achievements not only of themselves but also the officers, men and women, who have participated in their training over the last 10 weeks.
The Prime Minister further says they are now graduating to become a part of this very important segment of law enforcement, particularly Correctional Services for the people and the nation of Fiji.
He adds they all volunteered for this, some of them within the last 10 weeks must have thought maybe they should have stayed at home, but in that 10 weeks 52 of them started not knowing how challenging the 10 weeks would become.
Rabuka further adds when you look at the history of Fiji and the history of the world, even in the bible, there are so many people who have worked under officers of their status, of their calling, to become great leaders in their nations.
