Government and Land Ministry Permanent Secretary Number 2 has urged the newly
elected councilors of Brikama Area Council to nurture the spirit of teamwork
among them and to adopt a culture of close working relationship by putting
aside their political differences.
Rohey Bittaye-Darboe, who was addressing the new councilors during their swearing-in ceremony at the Brikama Area Council, equally reminded them that regardless of their political affiliations, “we are all Gambians so we need to consider the country’s interest first.”
She also appealed to the newly elected councilors to ensure that the needs of the people they represent are effectively and efficiently prioritise through the facilitation of services delivery. “Institutional memory is very important so I urge the Chief Executive officer and his team and the interim committee to give the necessary guidance to the new councilors and the chairperson.”
