By Zainab Faal The chief executive officer of Universal Properties Alhagie Sanyang, has said that Gambians should put aside their political differences and focus on development. Sanyang was speaking in an interview at his office along Kairaba Avenue. He stated that there is great need for attitudinal change and that the coalition government shouldn’t compromise time and other flimsy excuses at public institutions. “Let people not carry their bad attitudes into the new Gambia,” he said The universal boss pleaded with the Gambians to support the new government adding that those who contributed immensely during and after the campaign shouldn’t expect to be part of the new government but rather think of complementing its efforts in developing the country. “Every Gambian has contributed in this change, so the new government will create an environment for investors to come thereby making jobs available for every deserving Gambian,” he noted The real estate mogul, however, said a lot of people have been affected by the political impasse and he is not an exception. “From the time of the campaign my company’s turnover was about D3M and after the campaign, immediately the ex president announced he has not accepted the defeat, it drops to 1m, this is how bad it was,” he lamented He said people were rather thinking of buying foodstuff than to go in for property as it was a period of uncertainty in the country. He added it will take a few months to be back on track but he is glad that normalcy has been restored in the country. “Now that the coalition has set up the cabinet, everyone’s mind is at ease and people will feel secured to buy properties again,” he concluded.]]>
