The Chairman of Fiji Islands Trade and Investment Bureau, New Zealand citizen, Francis Narayan, has lost the $160,000 salary he was receiving as a consultant for Fiji National Provident Fund.
Our sources say Narayan was working three days a week as FNPF Consultant but his input was negligible and that he did not spend a full working day at FNPF.
Sources also say Narayan’s professional relationship with FTIB chief executive, Annie Rodgers, is extremely strained because of his dictatorial attitude.
As a result, Narayan is now operating as FTIB Chairman from an office in Marela House and not Civic Towers, the headquarters of FTIB.
But sources say Narayan may soon find himself back in the driver’s seat and reclaim his FNPF consultancy because of his friendship with the regime’s interim prime minister, Frank Bainimarama.
