Labasa will next month host the national Fiji Day celebrations.
Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama says 10th October will be celebrated with a full military parade and a military tattoo.
Speaking in Savusavu, Bainimarama says it may have been lost on past leadership in this country that a national celebration means you have to actually bring the celebration to every corner of the nation, but they are not making that same mistake.
“I know, as you know, that here in the North, you matter equally for our progress and development, you are all entitled to the same rights enshrined in our Constitution, and you are equally deserving of my Government’s total and unwavering commitment to your happiness and your success."
Bainimarama also took the time to acknowledge the Constitution Day celebration held at Subrail Park in Labasa on Friday.
“For me personally, I thought it was our best Constitution Day yet; and, no, that’s not just something I say every year. It only took one look at the sea of blue over Subrail Park to know we’re raising a proudly patriotic generation of Fijians.”
The first prize for the essay competition went to Priya Darshani Karan of Dreketi Central College who won a return trip for 2 to Sydney.
Second prize went to Joselyn Neha Mani of Naleba College who won a S9 mobile phone.
And, the third prize went to Milika Luisa Soso of Duavata Secondary School who won a J5 Pro mobile phone and a Walesi setup box
