A letter from AZIM DEAN of Nasinu in the Fiji Times speaks for a lot of people with his praise for our President. True he was not appointed by any legal process, but he was born a chief and it seems that makes a difference He practices rather than preaches “common and equal citizenry”.
The letter reads:
“MY friend Anish Chand wrote in this column (FT 22/11) about our President missing from welcoming the Indian PM. I would like to inform him that he is The Man. He doesn’t want to be boasting or standing shoulder high. Wherever he goes is traffic free, no roadblocks, no security, plus no bumper-to-bumper escort.
I think all leaders should follow this. Why use bodyguards and high-level security if you are serving the public. Best thing about our President is that we were together in a line to use an ATM and a guy ahead of us gave him his place. But those of us who bump into the streets know the President’s line, who just said “don’t worry, just follow the line. We are just common people and don’t have to give special treatment”. Those were his words. I urge our leaders to follow the steps of our President. We wish him a long and healthy life.”
