The Board of Directors and Management of the Gambia Revenue Authority (GRA) on Wednesday 10 February 2021, embarked on field visit to GRA offices within the Greater Banjul Area (GBA)
The airport was renovated last year, which involved an exhaustive overhaul of the terminal building, including the expansion of the structure and provision of more services that cost in excess of $14 million.
The works included renovations to the ceiling, floors, and expansion of both the arrival and departure areas.
Speaking to QTV News, Dibba stated that the country is used to experiencing yearly heavy downpour in the month of August and it’s natural to have splurges of water in big buildings.
“Since the airport was reconstructed and refurbished over the recent period, we have never witnessed flooding. Whatever the story was in the social media, is more than wakening of the public with the negative part or whatever they were thinking.”
Foreign partners who were extremely instrumental in supporting The Gambia during both its transitional period as well as after the departure of former dictator Yahya Jammeh have commended the ‘‘transparent and diligent work’’ of the Truth, Reconciliation and Reparations Commission (TRRC). However, they are extremely cautious over ‘‘sinister efforts to undermine the core process of the Commission.’’
