In his closing remarks, the Amir of the Ahamadiyya Muslim Jama'at in The Gambia, Maulana Baba F. Trawally, said that the Ark of the Ahamadiyya was able to sail successfully through the fierce storm of opposition because of the blessing of the Khalifa.

According to the spiritual leader of the Jama'at, unity must start from the grassroots level so as to re-enforce national unity. He added that for the people to attain national unity, there must be love for the country and this could be manifested through hard work and dedication.
In his address, Momodou Soma Jobe, governor of the Lower River Region, said that the Ahmadiyya Jama'at in The Gambia is contributing immensely to the socio- economic development of The Gambia, notably in the areas of education and health.
Kemo Sonko urged the youths to keep on obeying the teachings of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (S AW) for the realization of God, pointing out that a sincere heart for the Prophet makes a person beloved of God.
