SSHFC and Ocean Bay staff at Kanilai
Wednesday, August 20, 2008
The Social Security and Housing Finance Corporation (SSHFC) and Ocean Bay Hotel and Resort, on Saturday, the 16 of August, 2008, responded to the president's "back to the land and help feed the nation" call.
The management and staff of both institutions responded in large numbers. They gave their full support to the president on his farm.
Kanilai is a national treasure and I will urge every Gambian to try and go to Kanilai to see what hard work, determination and pragmatism can achieve. Going to Kanilai in a nut shell will give the individual the following: It gives the Gambian undiluted aim and ambition.
It will teach the individual to try and live a meaningful life and remind the person that this life is for a reason and one must be determined in life.
The response of SSHFC and Ocean Bay to the president's call will help in national development. Their show of solidarity and work on the farm will contribute in increasing the output of the president's farms and orchards which translates into more food for the nation, more scholarships and more resources for the President's Medical Research and Cure.
I love what I saw at Kanilai. The farms, the orchards, the buildings, the parks, the villagers, the drums and Jola dances and also the food. President Jammeh is the best thing to happen to The Gambia since independence.
I will advise all Gambians to look up to President Jammeh and join hands with him to develop this nation as he has the purpose, the drive, the ambition and pragmatism. We have a God-sent president who is willing and able to make this country a model country for the rest of Africa. Long live President Jammeh, long live The Gambian and long live all men of goodwill, purpose and pragmatism. Amen!!
