Just recently several young people in the country were
awarded degrees and advanced diplomas in various fields of study at the University
of The Gambia
for having successfully completed their studies there.
We must congratulate the UTG for the success.
During the 5thUTG
convocation at least 207 students graduated.
It's great for the students having attained their degree
courses here in the country. Now that they are empowered with the requisite
skills it's time for the graduates to also pay back the thousands of dalasis
for their schooling be it to the government, parents or other sponsors. The Gambia
needs well trained and determined young people to take of the challenges of our
time and hopes are high that you can make a difference in your various ways.
For other young people in the society you encouraged to make the best you of
the University of the Gambia
rather than paying exorbitant fees to other universities abroad. Off course
high education is a fundamental pillar for the socio economic development of
any country. Acquiring knowledge and skills is one thing but putting it into
practice is another thing. We encourage all the graduates to put their
knowledge and skills into to the country's development.
As young people you are energetic and able thus have the
ability to help the Gambia
attain her development aspiration such as vision 2020, MDGs and Silicon
We also thank the University
of The Gambia

people are also encouraged to join the University for their Own good. Those who
have the wealth should also endavour to sponsor some students to access
university education because its important is very much vital in nation's
