Monday, May 07, 2012
The National Patriotic Students’ Association (NAPSA) in collaboration with the National Scout Association (NSA) recently held a one-day leadership training for their members at the Regional Education Office in Kanifing. The training was meant to equip members with the pre-requisite knowledge in leadership and volunteerism.
Speaking at the occasion, Jarge E. Gaye, the chairperson of NAPSA, expressed delight at the initiative and commended participants for the large turn-out. Gaye described leadership as something very significant not only in religion but also globally. According to him, a leader should be a role model and should always be ready to contribute to national development.
He went on to describe President Jammeh as a leader for all Gambians and urged others to emulate him for a better Gambia. “I thank the Gambian government and the Ministry of Basic and Secondary Education (MoBSE) for their tremendous support to NAPSA,” he said.
For his part, Muhammed Camara, representing the scout commissioner of the Kanifing Municipality, outlined the importance of the leadership training, adding that it will not only guide members about leadership but also to contribute to national development. He described leadership as something difficult, but it is also important in religion and the society in general.
Camara noted that a leader should always be ready to take all forms of criticism, while describing the Gambian leader as a role model whom every leader should emulate.
