Friday, August 17, 2012
Revolution Club in Banjulinding Upper Basic School has paid the examination
fees of 44 pupils in the school. Speaking in
an interview with the Daily Observer, Suid Med Sillah, the founder of the club,
revealed that it has a membership of over 200 young people. He explained that
the sponsorship came as a result of a poem entitled ‘OH WHAT A SON’.
He said the poem was dedicated to President Jammeh during the President’s Meet the People Tour. He added that the poem was presented to the president on behalf of the club and he gave them an amount of $1000 which is equivalent to D24, 000. Sillah further stated that the best he could do with the money is to contribute to the development of the country by paying the examination fees of 44 pupils in his school.
Highlighting the clubs achievements since its inception, he disclosed that the club has paid for the examination fees of almost 60 pupils in the school, as well as embarking on a tree planting exercise around the school. He added that they have also been to Kanilai to work on the farm in response to His Excellency’s clarion back-to-the-land call.
On behalf of the club, Sillah conveyed his heartfelt gratitude to the president, while urging all Gambians to emulate him (President Jammeh) in his quest to develop the country.
