new group called Co-operative Junction Passengers Guide have been recently
launched at the cooperative junction in Westfield.
Speaking at the launching ceremony, Ousman Sillah, national Assembly Member for Banjul North said the group will be providing daily support to passengers going to Banjul. “These are young people who assist passengers going to Banjul in the morning. By bringing them together, they will be an organised group that can bring positive engagement among young people.”
He said members will be given uniforms for easy identification, particularly for those who would need their services.
Amadou Bah head of the group said, establishment of the group is part of creating employment for young people who are helping passengers particularly those going to Banjul in the morning.
Ebrima Kaba Cham, secretary general of Gambia Workers Union thanked members of the group for the initiative, noting that it is part of creating employment for young people.
