Fijian Rugby loses Rugby President

The Fiji Rugby Union has regretfully accepted the resignation of Ratu Sakiusa Tuisolia, who stepped down after nearly two years as FRU president.

Tuisolia told TVNZ  that his resignation was “one of principle and necessity to protect and uphold the dignity of the position of President of the FRU.” His move follows charges that have been laid against him relating to his previous position as CEO of Airports Fiji Ltd.

FRU chairman Keni Dakuidreketi said it was sad that Tuisolia had to resign, but he respected his decision.

“On behalf of the FRU Board of directors, I’d like to thank Tu Saki for his service over the past two years,” Dakuidreketi said. “We must now wait for the AGM in April to elect a new president.”

In his resignation letter, Tuisolia thanked the FRU chairman, trustees, life members, the Board, management and staff of the FRU, all the affiliated unions and the rugby fans of Fiji for their support during his time as president.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed my term as president,” Tuisolia said. “It’s something I will always cherish.”
