Fijian Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama has assured Fijians there will be no Muslim or Chinese takeover in Fiji.
Bainimarama made the assurance at the Ba Provincial council meeting at Viseisei village, Pacnews reports.
“There is no chance of a Muslim takeover in Fiji. Less than 5 per cent of Fijians are Muslim so they are not in a position to take over either. And Fijian Muslims – like every other citizen – are an integral part of our nation. They not only belong but are greatly contributing to our nation’s development. And that includes the AG, who more than anyone else, has delivered the unprecedented economic growth we are now enjoying,” said PM Bainimarama.
He also reiterated there was no chance of Chinese takeover in Fiji.
“Let me set the record straight once and for all. There is no chance whatsoever of a Chinese takeover in Fiji.
“We owe China only 10.6 per cent of our total national debt and they are not in the position to take over anything.
As we approach the election, I urge you to continue to show leadership in your communities by stressing the importance of unity and encouraging everyone to ignore the voices of division among us,” said Bainimarama.
