fulfillment of their corporate social responsibility, Gambia Transport Service
Company (GTSC) Wednesday donated office equipment to The Gambia Immigration
post at Jiboroh-Seleti border in Kombo East. The equipment includes visitors
and executive chairs, filing cabinet and executive desk.
Raymond Ceesay, GTSC deputy general manager explained at the presentation that the rationale behind the gesture is a sign of showing their appreciation to the Immigration Department for their services to the country, especially those at border posts where their fleet of buses plies.
“When we have a problem at the border we are quite sure that you will be there to intervene. But we are also saying beyond the borders. If we should go beyond the borders and have a problem we wouldn’t know what to do. The only people we would want to turn to is you because you are the authority and the people mandated to do this. So I think this kind of gesture is like creating a very good working relationship,” Mr. Ceesay said.
He promised that GTSC would continue to support the Immigration Department, saying, “We will continue to help you in every way we can and we also hope that wherever we have a problem at the border we would always be assured of your intervention.”
Superintendent Bakary Jobe, officer-in-charge the Immigration post at the Jiboroh border extolled the magnanimity of the bus company, saying the gesture is highly cherished and appreciated by the Immigration top command. “We highly appreciate these items. This marks the start of a good working relationship with us.”
Spt. Jobe indicated that at the border post, GTSC passengers could attest to the way and manner the Immigration officials assist them on their journey to Bissau and elsewhere.
