Well done, Brusubi
Wednesday, January 26, 2011
We commend the people of Brusubi for their demonstration of loyalty and support for the Gambian leader, His Excellency Sheikh Professor Alhaji Dr Yahya AJJ Jammeh and the government when they called Monday at State House. Their action was not only patriotic but also an indication that people of the community realised they cannot afford to turn a blind eye to the development projects brought to them, their community and The Gambia at large by President Jammeh.
It is undoubtedly in the best interest of nationalism for people to openly express their heartfelt appreciation to their leaders for initiating policies that greatly improved their lives and fulfilling their needs and aspirations. Such moves will boost the morale of the leader and spur him to do more for his people. The people of Brusubi therefore deserve applause for what they did and we hope that it will serve as an example for other communities to follow.
We could vividly recall that before 1994 the area now called Brusubi and its neighbouring villages like Brufut, Tanji among others were isolated communities. Travelling to the place was extremely difficult as the roads leading to the villages were unmotorable; electricity was virtually non-existent, not to mention inadequate water supply, health facilities and other basic social amenities. But through President Jammeh's nationwide development programme, Brusubi was born and transformed into a modern town, with a good road passing through it, potable water, schools as well as other amenities.
This is not the first time individual communities and families are coming out to appreciate the Gambian leader for his achievements and profess their unflinching support and loyalty to the APRC. It shows that Gambians are highly appreciative of President Jammeh's efforts in nation building and will do all they can to support him and the country at large. With the 2011 Presidential Election getting nearer by the day, such public shows of appreciation are clear indications that the APRC is set for another landslide victory.
