Committee of Banjul Muslim Elders (CBME) has announced the election of Alhaji
Alieu Mboge as its new chairman, replacing Alhaji Dr Ebrima Samba, who passed
away in July this year.
He was elected at an election on 25 September 2016.
Alh. Mboge, former secretary general of the committee, has been a member of the CBME since 2013, serving in various capacities.
He is said to be a devoted Muslim and a dedicated servant of his community.
The committee said the new chairman brings to the position a vast reservoir of administrative experience, spanning many sectors, garnered over decades of running public institutions.
“Such experience combined with his intimate understanding of the ethos of the CBME, and his industry, devotion and leadership will prove crucial as we embrace the challenges and opportunities of the future,” the committee said in a statement.
“The CBME congratulates the new chairman, Alh. Alieu Mboge, and offers its prayers and best wishes to him.”
