Villagers of Nabulini and Nasautoka in Wainibuka in Tailevu were delighted to meet the Minister of Forestry Honourable Osea Naiqamu today.
Minister Naiqamu continued with the 4Million Trees in 4Years Initiative Consultation which started early last month beginning in the Western Division.
Villagers were happy with the consultation as other representatives from ITaukei Lands Trust Board were present to clarify issues pertaining to freehold land, crown lease and other land issues.
Villagers were happy because they learnt about certain things which they never knew about for example what happens when tenants breach their lease conditions.
Ministry of Forestry officials also took the time to plant 100 seedlings in each village they visit – 50 indigenous trees and 50 fruit trees.
