It’s a challenge: Tikotikoca
Thursday February 01, 2007
Fiji’s incoming Police Commissioner Romanu Tikotikoca expects a tough encounter when he officially takes up his new appointment soon. He is currently meeting the Constitutional Offices Commission to discuss his new role. Tikotikoca is most likely to start work next week. He said he is determined to carry out his duty diligently for the betterment of the nation.
Speaking to Fijilive this morning, Tikotikoca said he was ready to take up the challenge. "Of course I would have to get a briefing from my senior officers first before I actually begin on what path to take. "It won’t be easy but I am confident with the support of the Force," he said.
Tikotikoca will succeed Lieutenant Colonel Jimi Koroi, who will now be assisting in investigations into allegations of corruption prepared by the military following complaints from the public.
Tikotikoca resigned from the Fiji police to take up an appointment as head of security at the Gold Ridge Mine in the Solomon Islands over a year ago. He had also served with the Regional Assistance Mission to the Solomon Islands (RAMSI).
