Happy birthday Mr President
Friday, May 23, 2008
Another joyous celebration; another opportunity to celebrate the birth of a revolutionary agent of change; another opportunity to reflect on a personality of epic influence on generations of Gambians, Africans and the people of the world at large. Agree with the man, or disagree with the man. The second President of the Republic of The Gambia is today a world leader with a revolutionary vision.
Come Sunday, 25th May, 2008, the Africa liberation Day also marks the 43rd birthday of our dear President, Alh. Dr Yahya AJJ Jammeh. Given what the man himself means to Gambians, and even the sub-region and beyond, the importance of Jammeh's birthday runs parallel to the birthday of the nation itself. Coincidentally, the two share the same year of anniversary.
