FijiFirst leader Voreqe Bainimarama claims that if The People’s Alliance (PAP) leader Sitiveni Rabuka gets into power, he will take Fiji 100 years back.

In a recent interview with Auckland’s Radio Tarana, Bainimarama also claimed that Rabuka would take down everything good in this country.

“He has been asked about his track record in the last eight years or last seven years when he was in government- from 1992 to 1997 I think-five years he hasn’t got any track record and so all he wants is the prime minister’s scene.”

Bainimarama also claims that Rabuka is not in politics because he wants to look after the welfare of Fijians but he is here for power.

During his recent trip to Gau Island, Rabuka said in the past 35 years, he has been carrying the burden of being blamed for the 1987 coup.

“I want to retire knowing I have redeemed myself and that the people I serve are at peace. Many have told me that I am a tired old man, that is true, but my weapon is my achievement and knowledge in leadership.”

Bainimarama said no Fijian should allow Rabuka back to lead Fiji as he has nothing constructive to offer.

The leader of the People’s Alliance is urging villagers to vote wisely in the 2022 General Election for the party they want in government.

Meanwhile, the National Federation Party leader has publicly declared his confidence in People’s Alliance Leader Sitiveni Rabuka.

At their first joint rally, held last night in Kinoya in the outskirts of Suva, Biman Prasad claims that their late leader Jai Ram Reddy had confidence in Rabuka as well, and that was sufficient for him.

Prasad asserts that Rabuka is trusted by Fijians while also alleging that the FijiFirst Party creates fear among Fijians.

He said Rabuka was a Prime Minister for seven years, from 1992 to 1999, and claims he worked with Jai Ram Reddy to give the best-ever constitution.

“We trust Rabuka, the National Federation Party trusts Rabuka. This man was the Prime Minister, and I know that I was in university. Sometimes I criticise him. But he tolerated criticism because he knew that it was necessary in our democracy. He respected democracy.”

Prasad said they have trust in each other and are hopeful that they will form the next government.

Prasad claims that if elected, the PA and NFP will use good policies to solve all of the problems.
