A moment to inhale national pride Dear editor, Being an opposition doesn’t mean opposing every action by the head of state. There are times when even advanced democracies like America, Britain, France and the developed, consolidated countries rejoice and appreciate their head of state. President Barrow demonstrated what is unique and a signature mark of…

Understanding our social construct, the Gambian girl Dear editor, In our social setting, the Gambian girl is made to believe that she is only successful when she is appreciated by men. She’s only beautiful when she has loads of men following her and she’s only worthy when she’s married and settled down with kids. She’s…

President Barrow beware! Dear editor, President Adama Barrow be aware of sycophants and lobbyists and surrogates and selfish supporters.

People seems to deviate from the belief that it’s done solely for Allah’s consciousness (taqwa/fear). These days of the year are characterized by helter-skelter walks like headless chickens.…
