The Human Resources Manager at the Gambia Revenue Authority (GRA) has published two books ahead of Gambia’s 52nd independence anniversary, 18 February 2017.  The two adds to his previous 25 books, making it 27.

Dr … Drammeh said his two books are entitled ‘Coalition 2016: A New Political Era in The Gambia’, and ‘Political Impasse and Post-Election Peace in The Gambia’.

The first book, Coalition 2016, is about the formation of a United Front (coalition), including the profiles of the coalition team, the struggle for freedom by some coalition members, the role played by ‘Concerned Citizens of The Gambia’ in the formation of the coalition, and the role played by the social media in the entire political process.

He noted that the 180-page book is to serve as a reference about the coalition team, especially their promises during the campaign and it could also help readers to understand issues during the 2016 presidential campaign and election.

“The book is written to promote the coalition government,” the author said.  “I would like to provide copies of the book to the coalition team as part of events marking the 52nd independence anniversary.” 

The HR manager of GRA said he was able to print 200 copies of the book but would like support to print more copies and to formally launch the book.

He said the second book, Political Impasse and Post-Election Peace in The Gambia, contains relevant information such as the cause of the political impasse, the role played by ECOWAS in resolving the impasse, the mediation role of the United Nations and the African Union, and the role played by different individuals and organisations, locally and International in the mediation process.

He said the 115-page book is to serve as a guide for future participation in politics and for posterity.

“It is also aimed at disclosing the crucial role played by the different people and organisations in the maintenance of peace and stability in The Gambia,” he said.

“I intend to send a copy of the book to the Senegalese Embassy in The Gambia as it contains important information about the role played by Macky Sall and the Senegalese government,” Dr Drammeh said.

“I am calling for support to print more copies of this book too as I am only able to print 100 copies,” he said. “I would also want to launch the two books provided I have support.”
