River Region Governor Fanta Samateh-Manneh said she is dissatisfied over the
slow implementation of some agricultural projects in the region, saying that it
is a cause for concern to her.
During a courtesy call by the new agriculture minister as part of her familiarisation tour of regional agriculture offices and meeting with farmers, governor Samateh-Manneh challenged the project directors to address the matter in the best interest of Gambian farmers.
But many project directors had dismissed the governor’s statement, saying she was misinformed. They said the governor should contact the right technicians to get correct information on the realities on the ground.
