The three ministers attached as the APRC liaison officers for North Bank Region (NBR) led by the National Assembly member for Lower Badibou, who doubles as the region’s desk officer, last Friday concluded a two-day visit to the APRC party local structures in the region.
The three ministers were Alieu K. Jammeh of the Youth and Sports Ministry; Dr. Aboubacar Senghore of the Higher Education, Research, Science and Technology, and Mama Fatima Singhateh, the attorney general and minister of Justice.
Speaking at a meeting in Njaba Kunda, Minister Jammeh applauded the APRC supporters in the region for their unflinching support to President Jammeh and his government. “Continue rallying behind the Gambian leader because of the numerous development projects he has brought to your door-steps in the region,” he urged.
He informed the electorate of the region about the December 1, Presidential election which he said is very important for any meaningful Gambian. He thus urged the NBR electorate to vote for President Jammeh massively.
The APRC desk officer for the region, Hon. Ablie Suku Singhateh reminded the electorate in the region of the numerous development projects brought by the President to the people of NBR.
“Let me just outline few of these projects which you all know are visible in the region like the famous Babili Mansa Bridge, construction of roads, building of more schools, hospitals and promoting girl-child enrollment in schools in the region just to mention a few,” he added.
Hon. Singhateh told NBR electorate that they were in the region to discuss with them about how to give President Jammeh an overwhelming victory in the December polls and also to inform them about the Gambian leader’s candidature for the forthcoming election.
The chief of Central Badibou, Alhaji Jagne described President Jammeh as a focused leader who always puts the interest of his people first before anything. Jagne assured Minister Jammeh and his delegation that the people of his District and NBR in general will continue to show their support to the President.
The deputy constituency chairman for Central Badibou, Sambala Minteh and Aji Mam Busso Njie both made similar remarks.
