FIJIFIRST general secretary Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum has urged supporters to become ambassadors of the party.

While speaking at a party rally at Tuvu, Lautoka earlier this week, Mr Sayed-Khaiyum urged supporters to go out and talk to people.

“What we expect is all of you who are here, we expect you to become the ambassadors for FijiFirst, please become ambassadors,” he said.

“You need to go talk to people. Most of the people who are here and go to most political party meetings are over 40. “Young people don’t come to meetings, they’re on this (phone) and Facebook, of course that’s why there’s a lot of lasulasu on Facebook too.

“So you have to go and talk to young people too.”

He said a lot of the young people were about 13 years old in 2007.

“Today they are 25-year olds and don’t know any better. Starting from the time they sort of became a teenager, they only know this Government and this Prime Minister.

“So they think that what somebody else is coming around and saying may be good, but they don’t realise the entire history of what has happened in Fiji.”
