MALAITA Premier Daniel Suidani in his address to Malaitans celebrating the Province’s 2nd Appointed Day today 17th August in Honiara has urged Malaitans to be the beacon of hope to the next generation.
In a powerfully presented speech, Premier Suidani pointed out, stating that, “Hope is the key for our destiny, for without hope we will perish and succumbed to the adversities of this world.
“It was hope that made many to have traveled the swelling seas for a better life. It was hope that made our people to stand tall against adversities. It is still hope that made many to be successful in their different works of life.
“Hope is the key for our destiny, for without hope we will perish and succumbed to the adversities of this world,” He said.
Premier Suidani reiterated to members of the public that attended the program today that the MARA government overarching policy drive is one that looks deeper into restorative economy.
“This is my message to you all today. That wherever you are and whatever you do, do it for the betterment of our motherland Malaita. Let us forge a new imagery for our mother land, an imagery of being caring people and peace loving people. An imagery that would transcends into others our worthy customs, cultures and our faithfulness to our work and our service for the betterment of our place.
“Malaitans our destiny should be the hope that one day we will develop our mother land into a place where opportunities flourish, where peace and tranquility is felt and adored, where men and women are given equal space to be creative and put out the best of their abilities,” the Malaita Province Premier said.
Premier Suidani in the meantime reminded Malaitans of the province’s rich history.
“We are among the first in many achievements for Solomon Islands. Malaitans were the first local to be appointed district commissioner, first to be the prime Minister of SI, the first to be knighted in Solomon Islands, the first to be a pilot and first in many other works of life. This is our history and we must use this history as a reminder that we Malaitans have played important roles in the building of this nation,” Suidani said.
