Lamin J. Sanneh was speaking recently during debate on the State Of Nation Address by president Adama Barrow at the National Assembly in Banjul.
The Brikama South lawmaker called on the government of The Gambia through the Ministry of Lands and Regional Government to come with a policy that will protect the lands in the country as well as control Real Estate developers in the country.
"We have a lot of lands problem in the country and the government of The Gambia is not doing much to come with a solution that will solve these land crises," he said.
According to him, in his constituency there are two villages namely, Darsilami and Dimbayaa that are currently facing a lot of challenges on land crises between them and Senegalese, claiming the ownership of the same land. The matter, he went on, was reported to the authorities concerned to remedy the situation.
“But still now nothing has been done to solve the problem”.
Also weighing on the debate, Sidia S. Jatta, member for Wuli West challenged government of the Gambia through the Ministry of Lands and Regional Government to come with a solution that will end the land dispute in the country.
Hon. Jatta noted that land crisis is a serious problem that people in many communities are dealing with.
