Sulayman Jammeh, Councilor for Bundung Six Junction Ward has declared his intent to run for nomination as candidate for National Assembly Member for Bundung Constituency. 


Declaring his interest, Councilor Jammeh who served as Councilor for Bundung Six Junction Ward since 2013 said: “In order to better serve and represent our community, I wish to declare my intention to run for the National Assembly seat for Bundung Ka Kunda Constituency in the next National Assembly elections slated for 9th April 2022.”

He expressed gratitude to his people for their confidence, saying they have together achieved a lot for their ward, the wider community of Bundung and beyond without any distinction or discrimination based on party, religious, ethnicity and/or other criteria. 

Jammeh said he intend to seek nomination under the Alliance for Patriotic Reorientation and Construction and their alliance partners, noting that his track record for community initiatives in Bundung and beyond stand in testimony that they work for the benefit of all their people and constituents. 

According to him, when elected as National Assembly Member, he will not only fight to ensure Bundung Constituency is well represented but also ensure the National Budget caters for public facilities in his constituency through all their schools, health facilities, police and other security services, highways and roads including drainage and lighting and safety. 

“Our experience as a Councilor working the first level of government at the grassroots, we are very familiar with the challenges our people face and thus we can bring those concerns to the National Assembly and ensure they are reflected in the National Budget Estimate and the approved budget for the Kanifing Municipality,” he stated. 

He further said that they have national and international partners that have engaged with them in Bundung and nationally in public lighting and access to water projects, noting that they can expand those work with their colleagues to ensure better services to all their residents.
