Sogavare apologise for not turning up to officiate on Literacy Day

Solomon Islands Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare has apologised to the Literacy Association of Solomon Islands ((LASI) for not attending the International Literacy Day celebrations this week.

Mr Sogavare was criticised for not attending the International Literacy Day celebrations, monday this week.

The Non Government organisation said the country's high illiteracy rate must be accepted as the most fundamental issue to address Prime Minister Sogavare's bottom up approach policy.

But in his message to the Literacy Network, Prime Minister Sogavare says the letter of invitation for him to be the guest speaker at this occasion had not been brought to his attention until he returned from the Premier's Conference on Rennell-Bellona province.

The Government's Communication Unit quoted Mr Sogavare as saying, he is mindful of the significant role of the Literacy Network in the country, especially the important task of breaking the chains of illiteracy in Solomon Islands.
