The revelation that 196 foreign nationals were granted Fijian citizenship over a period of six months, between January and July 2016, is interesting (FT:14/03).
That would be an average of approximately 380 people per year.
In monetary terms that would be approximately $2 million in Immigration Department revenue.
Let’s hope money is not the incentive to allow as many people into the country.
There are a good number of bogus new immigrants who are neither a complement nor a good example of what a genuine new citizen ought to be.
We need more stringent standards and requirements from anyone who desires to become a Fijian citizen.
We are already experiencing many very arrogant, disrespectful, and inconsiderate newcomers to our shores.
