The minister of Finance and Economic Affairs has informed deputies that the D500 million Emergency Fund designed to help contain the spread of covid-19 is available and ready for disbursement.
His visit was also meant to carry the mission and message of consolidation of the fraternity between The Gambia and Mauritania, represented in his Excellency Mr. Adama Barrow and his Excellency Mr. Mohamed Cheikh El Ghazouani.
The Shaikh’s strong relationship with The Gambia started in the days of his father, the revered Cherif Shaikh Mohammedou Ennahoui, who was a very known figure in The Gambia as he delivered big efforts and devoted his time to The Gambia even before its independence and way long after its independence.
The Gambian people have always known his values, the amplitude of his work and actions. Cherif Shaikh Mohamed El Havedh has been playing that role for years as he supervised the organisation of the two conferences of Ulemas in 2010 and 2011 in Senegal as counselor to then president of Senegal, Abdoulaye Wade, (the conference of Ulema of Africa in 2010 and the conference of Ulema of the world in 2011.)
He was also the vice president of the Mauritanian National Assembly and has met many great world leaders over the years who welcomed him and celebrated him for the big role he has been playing for the people of the region and to the service of Islam.
During his visit, Shaikh would be giving two lectures about ‘Love and Peace in Islam’.
Thousands of needy families assembled at various distribution centers of Brikamaba and Sinchu Madado in Central River Region’s Lower Fulladu West District to receive what they described as a timely gesture from the Government as covid-19 food support.
