When last week I saw on Gambia Radio and Television Services that a youth group had been formed and named President Barrow Youth Movement for Development, I was worried and my mind went straight to the Green Youths, Yaaye Compins and other such self serving Kafoos.

Then, I heard that a statement from the Office of the President had instructed the founders of that movement to change the name. That gave me solace. They should know better, and not take us that road again. Gambians are tired of such cheap attempts to get close to our president just to get rich quick at the expense of the general public.

You see, Mr President, if someone genuinely wants you to succeed, he or she should work hard to ensure

Mr. Sonko explained that their focus used to be on education but last year, they decided to concentrate on health, adding that in the near future they would have health education and nutrition as the key areas of development. He disclosed that they have spoken to some health professionals in the United States and non-profit organisations that serve third world countries with free medication and free health services.

He said they have reached an agreement to invite them to The Gambia with the help of the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare who have given them approval to invite the health professionals to The Gambia. According to Mr. Sonko, the 20 health professionals would include doctors, surgeons, nurses and other health experts who would offer free services to Gambians from September 13 to 22, 2018. He further explained that the health professionals would specifically come to help Gambians, starting with Upper Niumi District. Dominica

Do not get angry against or hate the tribe of the bigot, who attacked your tribe. For he does not speak for his tribe, but speaks only for his rotten persona!

So measure your response appropriately; in order that you don’t attack all of his tribe – some of whom may have more love for

HELLO MR PRESIDENT…HAS GPA DECIDED?

Development is like a chain. Every link is important; and when one link is weak, it weakens the entire chain. If there is one broken link in the chain, it will have a domino effect which will end up causing a lot of unpleasant consequences.

The difficulties of the National Water and Electricity Company [NAWEC] is causing a lot of trouble for many sectors. Take for instance the Gambia Ports Authority. The problem of NAWEC has actually compounded the ineptitude of Gambia Ports Authority. People are being told at the Ferry Terminal in Banjul that there is no electricity; and as such, they cannot issue tickets. How inept!

The amount of money that GPA is collecting every single day – both from passengers and vehicles – is such

WHAT THE BARROW GOVERNMENT IS DOING WRONG

Posted in: Human Rights, Opinion, Politics | Comments Off on WHAT THE BARROW GOVERNMENT IS DOING WRONG

PRESIDENT BARROW

It is said “unreasonable demands often breathe bile into impotent rage, which soon turns rancid and bitter”. Thus, making one conclude that one is swimming against tempestuous waves of conspiracy. Anyone that defy your standpoint becomes a sellout. Unfortunately, being antiestablishment in new Gambian has become a swag-whether it is rooted on reasonable or unreasonable intent and purpose. On the other hand, celebrating the new government’s gains boxed as opportunistic. Honesty, however, instils no matter one’s proposition one must align himself or herself with factual truth even if it tests your person. Same is legit in holding a government accountable.

Dictatorship has been laid to rest with our concerted effort and desire to have a voice in how we are governed and by who. The Barrow leadership is everything
