The people of the West Coast Region (WCR) have returned thanks to President Jammeh for the unprecedented developments registered in the Region in the past 22 years.
They were speaking in an interview with the 22nd July Development Caravan crew on Thursday, as the Caravan continues its tour in the region to sound the views of ordinary Gambians on the impacts of the Great Revolution on their lives.
Binta Sabally, a native of Lamin and fervent believer in the ideals of the Revolution and President Jammeh, was quite appreciative of the numerous achievements of the Revolution.
The Revolution under the leadership of President Jammeh, Babili Mansa, she further told the Caravan crew, has evidently transformed the country with so many life-changing policies and programmes. “We are proud of our President and we will continue to rally behind him.”
Madam Sabally went on to commend the leadership of the country for empowering the women, citing the appointment of the first female governor (Aminata Siffay Hydara).
Mariama Bojang of Dimbaya village, a gardener, thanked the President for constructing the Brikama-Dimbaya Road, saying the construction of the said road has eased the movement of people and goods in the area.
“It was a nightmare in those days travelling from Dimbaya to Brikama as a result of the bad condition of the road. We can ask for more, but we would just keep praying for the President to have long life and good health.”
The many other residents of the coastal village of Sanyang, who spoke to the crew, expressed good impressions over the giant strides registered by the Revolution.
The people highlighted the numerous development undertakings; from the Kombo Coastal Road, schools, quality health care service, portable drinking water, to the fishing sector. They were happy to share their impression with the 22nd July Caravan.
