The United Kingdom chapter of the ruling APRC Party has elected a new executive committee that will steer the affairs of the body for the next two years.
The new committee comprises of Pullo Diimo Saul as the chairman; Awa Sanyang, chair lady; Pa Sainey Badgie alias President Obama, chief coordinator; Pa Modou Mbowe, secretary general; Oumie Barry, PRO; Ansu Bojang, adviser; Nyima Beyai-Badjie, treasurer; Sulayman Shyngle Nyassi, assistant PRO; Assom Amie Jammeh, the mother of the Chapter, and Ma Bins Jammeh-Sanneh, assistant treasurer.
“After conducting our first ever online meeting of the APRC-U.K Chapter, we’re extremely delighted to break this news to all our members both here in the U.K., Europe and in The Gambia that we have finally succeeded in setting up our permanent executive committee tasked with the responsibility of steering the affairs of the APRC- UK Chapter,” assistant PRO Sulayman Shyngle Nyassi posted on his Facebook Timeline.
According to him, they initially set up an interim committee that was later dissolved to allow members to finally set up a legally binding executive committee. “They will be operating as our executive committee in accordance with our code of conduct and set rules and regulations, which every member is expected to abide by.”
As they strive in their collective endeavour of complimenting the outstanding efforts of the able leadership of the party leader in the UK and beyond its borders, Nyassi said more people will be entrusted with the responsibility of making it happen for the people, party and leadership.
“UK Chapter forward ever by the grace of the Almighty. The Elections are fast approaching folks so eyes on the ball. No time for detractors and spin doctors,” he concluded.
Pa Modou Mbowe, the secretary general of the new committee said: “We have to keep grinding folks for our desired outcomes come December and beyond. We are an arm of the government in the Diaspora with distinctive attributes and determination to push the boundaries a notch. Together we can move a mountain; as we already are, so consistency is a sign of quality.”
He went further: “We are all in it together brothers and sisters, let’s roll our sleeves and make our hands dirty in National Development, a responsibility we can’t outsource if we want a stable and peaceful country for our progeny.”
As the secretary general of the noble Chapter, Mbowe seized the opportunity to inform all and sundry that the UK Chapter will operate in line with the Party’s Constitution and Manifesto.
