 The acting vice president of The Gambia has said the government of President Adama Barrow would not interfere with the operations of any project.

Fatoumata Jallow-Tambajang, who is also the minister of women’s affairs, made this remark while presiding over the launching of bio-fortification project at the Regional Education Directorate in Brikama, West Coast Region.

She said the objectives of the government are to leave a good legacy and to ensure good governance “which everybody is now enjoying in this country”.

She further said the Barrow government is the government of the people and by the people.

Speaking on the newly launched bio-fortification project, funded by the EU and implemented by United Purpose, formerly known as Concern Universal, Madam Jallow-Tambajang said there was still the need to strengthen the monitoring mechanism to ensure quality assurance at all times.

The EU’s effort would never be forgotten in the entire Gambian history, she said.

The acting vice president also spoke extensively on the need to maintain peace and stability in the country, saying in the absence of peace and stability there will be no meaningful development.
