NFP President and MP Pio Tikoduadua

The 2022-2023 Budget is the product of an arrogant, out of touch and deceptive government that has based its more than 15 years of military and parliamentary democracy rule on dictatorship, fear and lies.

This was the claim by NFP President and MP Pio Tikoduadua while opposing the budget.

Tikoduadua says he is saying this because this is possibly the last budget to be brought to Parliament by the FijiFirst Government before it is dissolved for the elections.

He says this government has created Fiji into an animal farm where the chosen few and a business cabal get the pie while the people are fed crumbs.

The NFP President highlighted that the NFP and its leader have been branded as lying by the silent 25 for labeling this as a saqamoli budget.

Tikoduadua adds this will be the legacy left behind by this cruel and heartless FijiFirst government when it is booted out by the people at the polling booths.
