Former United Democratic Party (UDP) Sami District chairman, Alhagie Banding Ousman Dahaba has donated sanitary materials to the people of Niani Banni in the Central River Region.  

He said the donation of the materials is meant to help in the control and prevention of the spread of the deadly coronavirus which Gambia now registered 10 cases with one death and two recoveries.

“This is part of my duty as a good citizen to help fight against the coronavirus. I also did this to complement government efforts because the government cannot do it alone.”

Mr. Dahaba said if he had the strength, he would extend the support to the whole of Sami District but called on government, NGOS and individual to help the people.                 .           

Gorr Secka, coordinator of Barrow Youths in Sami District said the donation was important and has come at a time when it’s needed most. He thanked Mr. Dahaba for the gesture and called on others to emulate him.     

Bala Musa Touray of Niani Banni and Alhagie Njie, representative of the diaspora in Sami both thanked Mr. Dahaba for the kind gesture, saying he has been supporting his people in the district in all forms of development.
