Today, January 19th marks a new dawn
Today, January 19th 2017 marks a new dawn, ushering in a New Gambia under a soon to be inaugurated third President of the Republic of The Gambia, Adama Barrow.
As far as Gambians are concerned, the previous president and dictator is history as we turn a new page in our country's 51-year post-Independence history, 22 of which was spent in absolute and total darkness, both in the literal and figurative sense.
As we commence a new journey together and in unison, we hope and pray that common sense and love for country will win over vengeance and animosity to mark the beginning of a new era of peace, stability and prosperity to every Gambian which can only be realized through hard work.
Based on overnight reports,, Gambia's Chief of Defense Staff is quoted as saying that he is not going to commit his men to engage in "a stupid fight" with ECOMOG because he "loves his men" suggesting that the former dictator of The Gambia is left to fight his fight, alone, hopefully sparing the rest of the country of what could have been an agony of humiliating defeat at the hands of a far superior regional force.
Gambians are ready to move on under a new management team headed by CEO, President Adama Barrow and our neighbor Senegal together with our regional and international partners ready to join in our effort to reconstruct a New Gambia.
