34th Student Executive Council of The Gambia Technical Training Institute
(GTTI) last Thursday took over office from the 33rd executive. The handing over
ceremony was held at GTTI premises in Kanifing.
The outgoing president Elizabeth Kinta Gomez said, the task was not easy on them during their tenure in office but no matter what, they made sure that they stood for the rights of the students population.
She said, there were times when the management will be calling them names but they turned deaf ear. “I am the first female president in the GTTI executive council and I have performed my duty to expectations.”
Ms Gomez said, her executive was the first to open a bank account for the GTTI Students’ Union.
Head of management Alieu B Saine said, the spirit of unionism symbolises nothing but creating a bond of unity and good student hood. He said student unionism is a very important branch of the GTTI management and as a result, they cannot work without them.
He urged the executive to be transparent and make sure that they have one unique voice, and act as expected of them. “Show maximum discipline and perseverance like the outgoing executive.”
He said since the establishment of GTTI to date there has been remarkable improvement in terms of enrolment structure, capacity and many other aspects. “As a result, demand has always being overwhelmingly high and management will always have to work very hard towards addressing the needs of the people.”
Incoming president Fabel Ensa Jarjue said he was grateful for being given the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of all the students of the school.
