The Petition By Leader J.B. Fonoti In 1944 To The United Nations Approval on the 13th December 1946

While engaged to all Business Activities, J.B. Fonoti was also a Successful Politician. He was the leader of ‘The Fono a Faipule’ of Samoa from 1939 to 1947. And was also a member of the Legislative Assembly from 1948 to 1952 and 1954 to 1957. In 1954 he was a member of the Constituional Convention Committee of the Government of Samoa. When the New Zealand Governor-General Sir. Cyril Newall and New Zealand Prime Minister Mr. Peter Fraser visited Samoa in 1944, leader J.B. Fonoti presented directly a Petition for Self-Government in Samoa. While welcoming, leader J.B. Fonoti and on behalf of the Fono a Faipule, expressed solid criticism of New Zealand policy.

Demands were made in direct by leader J.B. Fonoti a firm request for Self-Government in Samoa, included: 1. The association with the administration of Samoa representatives to deliberate with Fonoti on ‘All Government Matters, 2. The appointment of Samoans as head of the Native Affairs Department, 3. For a Department of Agriculture to be established, 4. Promotions of Samoans through out the Public Service to more  senior posts, 5. For the training overseas of the Ablest Samoan Youths for further Education, 6. And For Limiting the Term of Expatriates to Three Years and No more than Six years.

The Trusteeship Agreement for Western Samoa was submitted and approved by the General Assembly of the United Nations Organisation on the 13 December 1946! Its details belong to the history of self-government in Samoa.

“Samoa’s Freedom From New Zealand Was Issued And Confirmed!”

Several important, though uncomplicated, decisions were made by New Zealand straight away. In particular: 1. A Scholarship Scheme to inaugurated to enable some of the Ablest Samoa Children to go to New Zealand for further Education, 2. A new appointment was made to the Office Of Administration. “This was not an easy position for the New Zealand Government to fill”.
