Westfield-Banjul high way lighting project inaugurated
Friday, May 29, 2009
The multi-million-dollar Westfield-Banjul high way lighting project that covers a wider part of the Greater Banjul Areas has been inaugurated, at a ceremony presided over by the vice president, Aja Dr Isatou Njie-Saidy, on behalf of His Excellency, Sheikh Professor Alhaji Dr Yahya Jammeh.
Last Monday's ceremony marked the official inauguration that forms part of The Gambia Government's mega ambition of illuminating the entire country, welcomed by many, including both drivers and pedestrians as it has boosted hopes against security concerns over life and property.
Speaking to journalists shortly after cutting the ribbon at the Denton Bridge, along the Banjul/Serrekunda Highway, Vice President Njie-Saidy emphasized the need for beneficiaries of the project to demonstrate responsibility in caring for the facility. She spoke at length on government's uncompromising stance in protecting the facility on which a fortune has been invested. She sought to inform the general public, particularly drivers, that the project was a capital intensive one with great value to the people.
VP Njie-Saidy therefore called on all to cherish and protect it from all forms of damages. The inauguration of the street lights was graced by Hon Fatoumata Jahumpa-Ceesay, Speaker of the National Assembly, Abdou Karim Savage, Chief Justice of The Gambia, secretaries of state and many other high profile dignitaries.
