By Amadou M. Jadama Ebrima Mballow, the newly appointed governor of West Coast Region has promised to work with local authorities as he gets to work in the country’s biggest region. Mballow was speaking to The Standard in an exclusive interview at his office in Brikama. “I am humble and honoured by the government for giving me this opportunity to serve as Governor of West Coast Region. “It is full of land issues but I am quite sure I would be able to handle it. I will try and honour the trust and confidence bestowed in me by the Gambia Government. “My first priority is to work with local councils like Brikama Area Council, Community Development and all stakeholders within the region, and then we see how best we can forge relationship and look into bringing development projects. “I will continue where my predecessor stopped and expand the development plans,” he said, adding that development is a continuous process. Governor Mballow pointed out that those projects initiated during the former APRC government should be looked into judiciously and find out why they are still not complete with a viewing of finishing them. He applauded the chiefs for answering to him when he invited them for a meeting in order to consult them on issues relating to the development of the region. Mballow thanked the new governor for appointing him and promised to live up to expectation. Musa B Suso, deputy governor, commended the new governor for his visionary leadership skills, commitment and dedication to national development. He described him as a man with vast experience, knowledge and honesty.]]>
