Unity Fiji Party leader Save­naca Narube says his party can do bet­ter than the cur­rent govern­ment has done. He made this comment while ad­dress­ing the vil­lagers of Narewa in Nadi dur­ing the party’s fi­nal cam­paign yes­ter­day.

Mr Narube said the Fi­jiFirst Party boasted about a lot of items. “They boast about ed­u­ca­tion, what ed­u­ca­tion?” he said. “They boast about free ed­u­ca­tion what free ed­u­ca­tion? We have one Top­pers of 600 places, the rest is loan. “Our chil­dren are bor­row­ing from govern­ment. At the end of their three or four years of study, they have this great bur­den of debt to govern­ment.”

The for­mer Re­serve Bank of Fiji gover­nor said this was not free.

“That is not free, that is not em­pow­er­ing our chil­dren, we will do bet­ter than what they have done,” he said. “What do they boast about, de­vel­op­ment, we can do bet­ter much bet­ter.”

Unity Fiji says its trump card is the lead­er­ship of Mr Narube, who was also once per­ma­nent sec­re­tary in the then Min­istry of Fi­nance, plus a mix of pro­fes­sion­als in its ranks of can­di­dates.
