A renowned Gambian writer, Dr Seedy Drammeh, has published a new book which highlights the achievements of the APRC government.

The work on the 216-page book called APRC Development Projects since 22nd July 1994, began way back in 2010.

The reviewing of the book lasted for two solid years by its reviewer.

Speaking to The Point, the author said he realised the need to document the achievements of the regime for posterity at a time when there was nothing like a call for competition to do so.

“The book captures most of the developments registered under all the ministries since the advent of the 2nd republic,” he said.

According to him, the book would be useful for any research on Gambia’s development and good for both the present and future generations.

He thanked the local councillors and various ministries who supported and cooperated with him during the process.

Dr Drammeh thanked President Jammeh for sponsoring the printing of 500 copies of the book.
