Thank-you for breaking the news on the recent resignation.
Am abit confused... as to why the Army commander Tikoitonga was asked to resign?
What is the reason behind this move? Request for a story on that.
Fiji has a Police Chief from South Africa. Fiji should try an army chief from Zimbabwe. The army in Simbabwe has successfully maintained Mugabe in power for over 3 decades. Such an army chief will suit our dictator turned " democratic " PM.
Naupoto is a puppet where as Brig..Aziz is a threat as he initated the coup and cried buckets to come clean and transfer blame on Driti instead. So the PM knows Aziz can be a snake so keep him in next door office to him so he can keep an eye!!!
Well well theres a storm in the tea cup! BG Aziz seemed like the natural choice since he was chief of staff for quite a while & had been No. 2 on the military hierarchy trained in law & army tactics in various countries as well as serving on the battlefield.
In The Australian newspaper on March 6, 2014 "Brigadier-General Mosese Tikoitoga was previously Land Force Commander, and has trained in Australia and Malaysia. As No 3 in the military hierarchy, he leapfrogged the No 2, chief of staff Brigadier General Mohammed Aziz, whose role today is chiefly ceremonial. He is also one of few soldiers who is not ethnically Fijian."
In my opinion, since Fiji has become a land of "Fijians", its high time a body like RFMF has a Fijian of Indian descent at its realm. Equal opportunity & multiracial was the buzz words during the elections, lets see if the actions speak louder than words.I cannot see a better deserving officer than BG Aziz.
Its better to give the leadership to a career military person than someone like Naupoto who jumps around many potholes.
this is the land of the Fijian the land of the brave. everybody race born in our home land or country have the right to be come a Fiji citizen but dos not give him the right to become a Fijian. politics, western world may change what ever its wanna change but the true Fijian will always be and never change as Taukei the indigenous people of this land. let us Fijians run our country.. no wonder that saying was true where ever the Indians are troubles is.....
If that was their preference, then its most likely that their preferred candidate may have been a threat to the regime so they replaced him with Naupoto instead.
On the other hand, it would be interesting to see if Tikoitoga himself resigned for that supposed "diplomatic job opportunities" that he claims as genuine reason though, unless its something else of course.
