The people of Serrekunda Central over the weekend reaffirmed their loyalty to His Excellency the President for improving the lives of the people of the area in all sectors of development.
This came in the form of a meeting organised by the Serrekunda Central APRC executive committee members in honour of their adopted mother, Aja Binta Jammeh-Sidibeh, father, Momodou Sanyang and Babou Gaye Sonko.
Speaking at the event, the liaison officer attached to Kanifing Municipality, Hon. Neneh MacDouall-Gaye, who doubles as the Foreign Affairs minister called on APRC supporters in the constituency to open their doors to those who want to join the party for good.
“Be open to AFPRC/APRC vanguards because those people should not be left behind because of the role/s they played and experience they have and allow those people to come back to the party,” she advised.
According to her, the large turnout at the rally should also be well reflected on President Jammeh’s victory for the forthcoming Presidential Election.
She urged the youth of the area to vote for President Jammeh. “President Jammeh built a university in the country and he did not only stop at that but even the poorest man’s son or daughter can attend university education in the country without going outside to acquire university knowledge,” she said.
Minister Gaye added that the Serrekunda Central electorate is fully behind the Gambian leader and they will continue to be loyal to the APRC party for the good of the people of the area and the country in particular.
For her part, Binta Jammeh-Sidibeh applauded the Serrekunda Central APRC committee for the honour bestowed on them as their beloved mother, father and brother respectively.
She commended the First Family for banning the practice of FGM and early marriage in the country. “That bold step taken by the First Family was something the entire women of Serrekunda Central welcome and they (women) will remain loyal to President Jammeh forever,” she said.
According to her, the people of Serrekunda Central cannot change President Jammeh with any other presidential aspirant and she gave promise to the APRC hierarchy present at the meeting that the electorate in the area will not let APRC sympathisers bow their heads down come December 2, 2016.
The mayor of Kanifing, Yankuba Colley, described opposition political parties as people who have no vision. “We will sweep them out of our domain in totality; if they have the vision let them have their own foreign and education ministers to work with the government,” Mayor Colley said.
