As the year 2010 draws near, Mr.Henry Gomez, the leader of the opposition Gambia People's Democratic Party (GPDP) has called on all Gambians to change their attitudes and work for the betterment of the country.

"We are closing a very turbulent year that calls for attitudinal change in order to overcome some of the challenges. We have to be honest to ourselves and one another because this country belongs to all of us," Gomez told this paper in an interview yesterday, calling on Gambians to learn to forgive each other.

According to him, it is his fervent belief that "if we all join hands together, change our attitudes, Gambians will have a nation far developed from others."

He commended all Gambians for the hardwork over the years, wishing the President, his Cabinet and all Gambians a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year in advance. He also wished all African leaders a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year in advance.

Commenting on the political front, Amadou Ceesay, the Administration Secretary of the party said the GPDP is stronger today than ever before.

According to him, the party is currently putting in place plans to embark on a nationwide sensitisation tour to meet its militants in a bid to restructure the party.

"This is one of our main priorities and we would work towards achieving that," Ceesay said, adding that the party will by next year hold a national congress. He added that the party will continue to work hard with a view to increasing its support base in the country.

"GPDP is a force to reckon with because we have the support of all Gambians," Ceesay concluded.
