SIXTEEN Fijians were awarded medals at the Investiture Ceremony for the 2017-2018 National Honours Roll at State House today.
President Jioji Konrote, during his remarks apologised and said that the Investiture Ceremony had to be deferred for two consecutive years because the State House had to be renovated over that period.
“This Investiture Ceremony is another testament of the Government’s commitment to ensure that the culture of appreciation and its recognition of individual’s selfless contributions to nation building continue to be acknowledged and justly rewarded,” he said.
Family and friends were also present to celebrate the achievement of the individuals.
