Key officials have been returned to the most senior positions in the Methodist Church, despite the conference at Centenary Church being cancelled by the illegal regime.
The Fiji Times is reporting the Church was last night allowed to induct current president Reverend Ame Tugaue and general secretary Reverend Tuikilakila Waqairatu for another three years.
It says 11 executives were inducted in the special service.
The Church's acting general secretary Reverend Tevita Banivanua is quoted as saying the church was thankful for permission to have last night's service. He said former church president, Reverend Josateki Koroi, was also personally approached but "said he was not ready to attend that meeting".
The assistant general secretary, Tevita Nawadra, is meanwhile quoted as saying the service was a welcome service for church members, who had arrived for the cancelled meeting. "We were just about to finish our meeting when we received the call that they had decided we could go on with our service."
The Church General Secretary Reverend Tuikilakila Waqairatu is, meanwhile, being quoted by FBC as saying they will hold a press conference tomorrow regarding the statements made by Mosese Tikoitoga today about why the conference was cancelled.
