The people of Banjul have described their support and loyalty to President Jammeh as unshakable, vowing never to give their back on him and his government.
The declaration was made on Sunday evening as part of the constituency tour of the APRC executive committee of Banjul. It was held in the form of a meeting at Spalding Street.
Speaking at the meeting, Wilson Shyngle the ex-deputy mayor of Banjul stated that Banjulians have no reason to oppose President Jammeh because of the development projects he brought to the city. “You have to properly keep you voters cards for easy access rather than wait till on the day of the election and you begin to search for it because if your voter’s card got lost, you will not be able to vote,” he said
Ajie Fatou Sosey-Jallow, a deputy permanent secretary at the Office of the President, who is also the secretary general of the Banjul Central APRC Committee, reiterated her people’s readiness and commitment to vote for President Jammeh. She added that Banjulians are one people and no one can divide.
Ajie Ramou Jallow, a youth mobiliser, stated that Gambians should be grateful to President Jammeh. “During my school days in the early 70s, it was though for us because I can recall that students were carrying chairs and tables to classes but now everything comes as readymade, more so we have free education for all,” she noted.
Pa Mamud Ceesay the ward councillor of New Town West called on Banjulians to come out and vote for the APRC party for the progress of the country, saying the opposition will never bring development to the country. “So let no one fool you, the President has a big heart for the country and the people of the country and we need to support him in his development agenda,” he added.
Pa Babou Sarr a youth mobiliser thanked President Jammeh for his development of the country. He said the establishment of the University of The Gambia is a clear manifestation of President Jammeh’s support to the youth because education is a key to success.
Alhagie Tamu Nyang, deputising the mayor of Banjul, Alhaji Momodou Njie- Biri Njie, Ajie Yama Njie, all hailed President Jammeh for developing the country and Banjul in particular.
