Delivering his keynote address during the grand celebration the Prime Minister said:

I want to applaud Fiji Sevashram Sangha for naming this Nationwide Celebration “A Celebration of National Unity,” not just because of the huge number of people celebrating all over Fiji, but because of the way you have reached out to all Fijians to invite them to share in this celebration—to share the joy and devotion you feel.

People of faith are important in a free society, a free society like we now have in Fiji. People of faith give a voice to morality and ethics. They demand good government, justice and social responsibility. When people of all faiths come together in tolerance and understanding, when they love and respect each other and work for the common good—then peace, justice and prosperity will flourish.

Each and every day, we face new obstacles, new challenges. But it is through faith that we overcome them. Challenges make us stronger. They make life meaningful and worthwhile. They sometimes seem insurmountable, but we become better people when we face them and conquer them.
