As today marks the second year since you assumed office as mayoress of Banjul City Council, the Students’ wing joins the rest of the public in celebration of the supersonic milestone achievements the council has registered since your election into office. It is as clear as noon light that even the blinds can attest to the reality that you have completely changed the city’s persona to an inclusive city that attracts public appreciation and gives the benefit of doubt to the public that their votes in you have actually represented the change they envisaged it would represent in the municipality. Your personal touch into office as mayoress of Banjul City gives the council a heightened significance and pride in the face of all other local governments in the Gambia and has proven beyond reasonable doubt the capabilities of women in national development as leaders, mentors and change agents.
Evidently, prior to your assumption into office as mayoress, the city of Banjul has been limping from developmental crisis and sanitary plights. Thanks to your foresight, vision, and astute leadership qualities with a team of cooperating professional cadre of administrators and technicians, the city is able to restore and regain the pride of its unique appellation. It must be attributed in no small measure that the enviable record of your orderly progress as mayoress of Banjul City Council was not achieved without challenges, but your cost savings programs to improving and maintaining the City’s services and outlook in spite of the almost intractable hitches has proven that no problem is insurmountable.
In view of this, we call on the central government and the people in Banjul Municipality to continue throwing their unlimited support behind your progressive transformation agenda in your quest to giving a panoramic outlook to the municipality as you continue to be responsive to the ever-increasing demand for services. The capital city of any country is a place that should be aesthetically pleasing like a shining star, strut with feathers in full view. It is often said that beauty is not uniformity or conformity. It is respect paid by those creating to those who will benefit and enjoy such a creation. However, the Students’ Wing believes that the council will continue to maintain the same work ethics throughout the days and years until the city becomes a type of city you want it to be like. Once again, congratulations for you indelible landmark achievements.
