Gambia’s Inspector General of Police (IGP) Alhagie Mamour Jobe last Thursday laid the foundation stone for a two million dalasi worth police station for Fula Bantang. TECHWORLD Oil Company is sponsoring the project.

In his remarks shortly after the foundation stone for the police station, Inspector General of Police Alh. Mamour Jobe described himself as the luckiest IGP when it comes to development.

He noted that the reason TECHWORLD agreed to sponsor the construction of the police station is the result of his office’s open door policy to the public.

He pointed out that the construction of the police station in Fula Bantang will help them respond to security issues within the area faster.

IGP Jobe appealed for vehicles and uniforms for The Gambia Police Force from those that can help.

Dodou D. Touray, Operations manager for the Gambian-owned company engaged in oil and gas business said security is a moral duty for all patriotic citizens. He added that the police cannot do it all alone which is why it is a paramount obligation for all and sundry to support The Gambia Police Force in their quest to establish a free, safe and egalitarian society for all.

Mr. Touray described the gesture by the company which currently employs over 300 Gambians and non-Gambians as part of their corporate social responsibility.

Fula Bantang alkalo, Alh Muhamadou Dem, said they have been faced with a lot of issues such as thefts among others but since the police established a base in the community, all those issued have ceased.

“Every compound owner can now sleep with a peace of mind until day breaks without thinking of thieves,” he stated, noting that there cannot be development without peace and stability.

While thanking The Gambia Police Force and TECHWORLD Oil Company, he expressed their wish for peace to continue to flourish within the area.
