Government is committed to completing all development projects in the district of Raviravi on the island of Beqa before the last quarter of this year.
This was the message conveyed to villagers by Commissioner Central, Lieutenant-Colonel Laisenia Tuitubou during a recent tour of the island.
Government projects currently underway in the district include the construction of a nursing station, nursing quarters, and school dormitories at the Beqa Yanuca Secondary School.
“We are targeting the end of August to mid-September to complete the construction of these projects,” Commissioner Tuitubou said.
He said that the projects that “had long been in the pipeline needed to be completed before the commencement of other development plans”.
“We would like to complete all unfinished projects before embarking on future development works that we would like to work on and that is why we have sought the assistance of the engineers from the RFMF.”
With the building materials to be sent to the district next week, he urged villagers to assist Government and military engineers in the construction of the projects to hasten its completion.
“We need your assistance to complete the various development projects in your district and to help in the construction of the nursing station and the facilities at the school.
The principal of Beqa Yanuca Secondary School, Alena Raqitawa, praised Government’s efforts to improve the quality of education on the island through the construction of the dormitories and ablution block.
“I would like to thank the Government for helping these families in bringing education to them and making it more accessible to Beqa and Yanuca islands,” Ms Raqitawa said.
