Let's Address Soaring Ram Prices

Nov 23, 2009, 1:54 PM

It is not an exaggeration to say that getting a ram here in The Gambia ahead of the Tobaski is increasingly becoming a problem to many income-earners.

Affordability to get rams at cheaper prices has now become a major concern in all corners of our society, especially in current times when the demand is too high.

It has also become a topical issue in all corners of the country.

Concerns have been raised by the public regarding the high cost of rams not only within the Greater Banjul Area, but also in some parts of the country. It is now becoming customary to many to travel out of the country to look for one, especially in the neighbouring Senegal, where it is said to be cheaper than here.

There is no denying that this is making life extremely difficult for many and we are saying something should be done to address what many described as an unfortunate situation.

Every now and then, we see people travel to the neighbouring countries to buy rams where they believe it is cheaper. This is creating more hardship for people, who in most cases lost their valuable time and resources in such journeys.

We reiterate that every effort should be employed in putting a stop to this unfavourable and unfortunate situation with all possible haste.
