Chief George Suri Kwanae of North Malaita says this is a great achievement in the best interest of rural dwellers of Solomon Islands.

While congratulating the Prime Minister and his Government for the achievement Chief Kwanae says the help will go a long way in the development Solomon Islands.

Chief Kwanae however warns both the leaders and their people to use the money wisely.

He appeals to the rural people to ensure they use the funds on viable and sustainable development projects which brings economic benefits to the people and the nation.

Chief Kwanae warns against the use of funds by leaders and their close associates for political gains.
