New administrators for Nadi, Sigatoka

New administrators for Nadi, Sigatoka Fiji's government has terminated the special administrator for Sigatoka and Nadi, Aisea Tuidraki and Nemia Tagi, the chief executive of Nadi Town Council from their respective positions.

Attorney General and Minister of Anti-Corruption  Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum confirmed the terminations in a government statement and also announced changes which will see Special Administrator of Lautoka Praveen Bala assuming the responsibilities of special administrator in Nadi until Tuidraki’s successor is announced.

And prominent businessman and tourism industry figure Jay Whyte will become Sigatoka’s very own special administrator. He will appoint a committee of local stakeholders to assist him in his duties.

Sayed-Khaiyum said the decisions were made in the interests of transparency and better service delivery for the residents of both towns.

He revealed that Tuidraki and Tagi were being investigated by the Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption (FICAC).

“While charges have yet to be laid, government is extremely concerned that both men had declined to cooperate fully with FICAC. Irrespective of the outcome of any investigation, this is clearly not the standard required of our local government officials and we were left with no choice,” he said.

 The Attorney-General said there had also been serious complaints made about other aspects of the pair's conduct including allegations of favouritism in the allocation of jobs and contracts.  

It was also being alleged that the office of the Special Administrator had not been keeping proper records.

 “Whatever the outcome of the current inquiries, they are secondary to the need to provide the ratepayers of Nadi and Sigatoka with a high degree of transparency, accountability, performance and confidence that their interests are paramount. On that basis alone, the Special Administrator’s and the CEO’s positions were clearly untenable”, he said.

 He also thanked Whyte for offering to perform the role of Special Administrator in Sigatoka for no remuneration.
