Peace is indispensable in the development of any nation. The Gambia is a beacon of hope throughout the world when it comes to its citizens’ peaceful coexistence irrespective of one’s religious or ethnic affiliation. Therefore, any action geared towards jeopardizing that should be condemned by all outright and must not be compromised by any.
We thank the President for condemning campaign of violence at a well-attended meeting in Essau on Monday. The President has made it very clear that he will not compromise the country’s peace and security irrespective of who is involved. So let us all safeguard the peace and stability the country is known for.
As rightly stated by the President no one has the right to intimidate anyone and therefore called on Gambians to do away with violence and follow the due processes of the law. Elections come and go, but the Gambia is here to stay.
Tribalism is ungodly and has no place in our dear country as it only lead to retrogression. The Gambia is known for its peace throughout the world, so let us try and maintain that peace.
It is therefore incumbent upon every citizen to campaign for peace and stability but not violence. As the president rightly stated, the time has come for the country to reach the economic Super power status, free university education and many unprecedented developments.
Therefore, as we fast approach presidential election let us shun tribalism and violence in all its forms. It is our collective responsibility to safeguard the peace and stability of this great nation of ours.
