Fiji Rugby Union chief executive officer, Keni Dakuidreketi, has today tendered his resignation. Dakuidreketi has served the FRU as either Board Chairman or CEO for the past 10 years.
“It’s been my privilege and honour to have served an organisation which affects the very heart of the nation and where each and every individual regardless of creed or colour has an opinion,” Dakuidreketi said.
“It’s been tough, there’s no hiding behind that fact, but there have been rewards such as the 2005 Sevens Rugby World Cup victory, the 2005-06 IRB World Sevens Series win and of course the wonderful performance at the 2007 Rugby World Cup.”
Current FRU Board Chairman Colonel Mosese Tikoitoga, in accepting the resignation, acknowledged Dakuidreketi’s contribution to the overall development of the FRU in recent years.
“I’d like to thank Keni for his immense contribution to the development of the game and of the FRU as a professional organisation and wish him well in all his future endeavours.”
Dakuidreketi’s resignation is effective immediately.
