By Amadou Jadama in CRR
A personal aide to president Adama Barrow, Lamin Cham has described the Gambian leader as a symbol of peace.
Cham was speaking in Kerline, Central River Region, during a meeting with the women’s group of Niamina Dankunku who adopted Fafa Ceesay as their father last Saturday.
Fafa Ceesay is a close friend to President Adama Barrow and a member of the Barrow Youth for National Development.
“President Adama Barrow is The Gambia’s symbol of peace.
During the trying times everybody was staying indoors, wondering whether they will be arrested today or tomorrow.
Nobody ever thought that president Barrow will be looking for the leadership of the party he came from UDP, much more the presidency,” he told the gathering.
Mr Cham informed the meeting that road projects have started in many parts of the country to connect villages and towns to ease transportation.
“Currently there is too much petty talk in the country but the remedy for petty talks is to pay a deaf ear to it and continue to work; that is important and more beneficial”, he said.
Cham said the common objective should be how to move this country forward. “The type of president god gave us is only interested to leave a good legacy. So if god gave you such a leader whose desire is to ensure peace prevails in the country, we should all embrace him,” Cham said.
He added that President Barrow deserves to be followed because he does not consider tribe, religion or party.
Cham finally called on people of CRR to rally behind President Barrow. He vowed that the road linking Choya to Dankunku will be constructed.
Fafa Ceesay, the adopted father gave D50,000 dalasi to the women’s group.
In attendance were Bakary Aba Sanyang Governor CRR, Momodou FK Kolley former minister of Lands under Jammeh, Samba Jallow Minority leader, Chief Sulayman Keita Dankunku and other chiefs.
