Private Contributions Rightly Honoured

Aug 12, 2008, 6:15 AM

We congratulate all those honoured by The Gambia Police Force for their contributions to the force in recent times. They are to be lauded for their efforts in supporting the force in its efforts to protect the people of The Gambia and their property. The four men honoured were Momodou Turo Darboe, Hon. Suku Signateh, Majority leader Fabakary T. Jatta and KMC Mayor Yankuba Colley. Among the accomplishments for which the men were honoured was a donation of D25,000 towards the construction of the new police station at Talinding by Momodou Turo Darboe and this was praised by IGP Badjie at the occasion.
There was also high praise for Fabakary Tombong Jatta for providing the police with fuel during their times of need. Meanwhile, at the same ceremony, Hon. Abdoulie Suku Signateh gave a whopping donation of 250 raincoats and boots to The Gambia Police Force as part of his contribution to national development.   These are all indeed great contributions to national development and those making them should be commended. Given that the private citizens of The Gambia are presenting The Gambia Police Force with their hard earned money the police must ensure that the best possible use is made of the money.
