Letter of Gratitude
Your Excellency, I am highly privileged and of course genuinely gratified to be among the special Gambians in the Diaspora you identified and decorated on August 20, 2016 in recognition of our contribution to the success of the 22nd July 1994 Revolution. Recognising or appreciating my contribution in the success of that dynamic event of your vision, through such a prestigious national ceremony, eternalized by offering us such priceless awards, has indeed been greatly comforting, inspirational and quite energizing. You have of course through this gesture that also resonates as a special counseling helped in fortifying my resolve to continue rendering the best of my service to you, your family, government and the whole country.
I stand to pledge that as the champion of our nation’s wellbeing renowned beyond her frontiers, I will double all efforts of spreading the uniqueness of your spirit and nobility attributable to all your formidable achievements. And to broadly share my conviction that, as our president, you thrive fundamentally in your endeavors, rooted deeply in human-sustaining values.
Your Excellency, as we continue to acknowledged and treasure the constructive significance of the 22nd July 1994 Revolution of which am distinctly honored to be associated with its success, I deem it ever more important to underscore the progressive relationship you have since forged with Gambians and non-Gambians that resulted in swapping their past sorrows with abundance of joy, their losses with tremendous gains and their hopelessness with infinite hope.
Your Excellency, it indeed gratifies me for being chosen as part of those walking with you in the gentle pathways and smooth roads you have paved for every enlightened Gambian. A bit of uncertainty could remain here and there or some occasional but negligible forces of opposition emerging or still, at times, hesitations from few allies which are all perfectly normal in any form of political rectification, but the cardinal truth remains that we are extremely grateful to you and your achievements which are far greater than you might even realize.
Your Excellency, while the country prepares for the upcoming presidential elections in December 2016, of which your victory grounded on your marvelous track record and vast national support is certainly a foregone conclusion, I pray for your good health, wishing that Almighty the Allah will continue endowing you and your whole family lasting vitality and soul-fulfilling sustenance.
May the Almighty Allah guide you through the next-five-year term, conferring you the wisdom, tenacity and resources essential for the realization of all your objectives.
Thank you so much Mr. President!
