Wishing the President and his team the best of luck , integrity and humble dedications to move the Country forward. It is every Gambians duty to make sure we are steering towards the right but more of the burden is heaped on you people. Lack of dialogue within yourselves and with the people has caused lots of unnecessary delay in implementing progressive projects that are indispensable in nation building.
God bless The Gambia and hardworking truthful people.
