Thanks a million for granting space to me in your widely read and prestigious newspaper to candidly air my views regarding an issue which has lingered on my mind for a lengthy period. It has to do with the relocation of the Ministry of Education (MOE) from Broad Street to the poverty-stricken Saye Town Community.
My dear People of The Gambia:
I greet you in the Mighty Name of Almighty God, whom most of you call Allah, and hasten to extend to you all my heartfelt congratulations and felicitations on your successful Elections of the past two days, through which you ousted from power President Yahya Jammeh, and freed your country and yourselves for his tyrannical rule.
Dear Honorable Speaker Emmanuel Nuquay and Pro Temp Armah Jallah:
Please accept my compliments and best wishes on behalf of the Elections Coordinating Committee (ECC).
The ECC is deeply concerned that as the country approaches the 2017 election year, a decision is yet to be reached between the National Election Commission (NEC) and the Legislature on setting a new threshold to reapportion constituencies for the 2017 presidential and legislative elections in keeping with Articles 80 (d) and (e) of the Liberian Constitution.
Let me take this time to plead with our brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, grandfathers, grandmothers, nephews, nieces, of Gbi-Doru that the solution to the current problems that sadly confront the communities is not to go to River Cess County. We need to keep engaging with the Nimba County Administration and the County Legislative Caucus to help find needed solutions to the serious situations in this part of our county. I understand your frustration as I have gone to your towns and villages and slept in those communities and know what you have been going through.
