I agree with the president
Friday, June 12, 2009
I just want to comment on the President's remarks that some top civil servants are not doing the job bestowed on them by The Gambian people. I hope our civil servants are aware that the president should not be left alone. If everyone was performing his or her task as they were assigned, we would have been far from where we are today.
We have all seen the efforts that The Gambia Government is making for us to achieve our target for the 20/20 vision. I agree with the president's policy of terminating the services of anyone who is directly or indirectly trying to sabotage the monumental progress our motherland is heading towards.
In the case of the Ghanaian victims, I don't want to say much because the truth has spoken for itself, but I must note that it is time for our brothers here in the diaspora to stop writing their nonsenses on the Internet. These so-called cyber journalists are nothing but people who happen to have some attention deficit and this is probably the only way they can get some attention that they do not even deserve at the expense of the Gambian populace.
In fact, one thing that baffles me a lot is that these cyber journalists claim to be writing in the name of freedom of speech, yet they always condemn the Daily Observer for selling The Gambia in a good way. It looks like they can't understand that The Gambia belongs to all of us and that if the country sinks, every Gambian will sink too.
Recently, I have also seen some so-called absentee politicians launching political parties just to rip people off and blind foreign governments by making them believe that they are fighting a cause, which in reality does not exist, but rather are just doing so for their selfish ambitions.
Like Dr Owl puts it: 'Learn and teach others.' But I don't think they are interested in learning anything that will benefit The Gambia if they are attacking and using all kinds of unethical language in the name of freedom towards people that disagree with them. If I am right, the president said that criticism is like fertilizer and it helps him deliver to The Gambian people. With all that he has done and what he is trying to do for the whole of The Gambia and everyone within the territory, he still says that when he looks at the Gambian people, he thinks he hasn't done anything for them yet.
Please, Daily Observer and GRTS, do everything possible to counter all these nonsense we see on the online papers daily. We all know that there are enough developments in our country that will keep tourists pouring into the Smiling Coast of Africa.
