Gambia College deserves better

It is with utter consternation that I learned about the delay in megabytes for students of The Gambia College. Extraordinary moments call for extraordinary steps and assisting students of the Gambia College in their time of need is indeed worthwhile. The amount of megabytes proposed to be sent to the students is already under question considering the amount of lectures one have to attend per day and to add more salt to the injury, the meagre 500mg is taking forever to reach students.

It is totally disheartening to realised that the oldest and biggest tertiary institution in The Gambia, graduating competent Nurses, Teachers, Public health officers and Agriculturist is left craving for what is supposed to be its entitlements. Gambia College is still an orphan institution just when we thought things will change for better.

During these difficult moments, students of the Gambia College are faced with new challenges ranging from internet connectivity, power supply to affordability of data. With the aforementioned, it is very apt to respond to the needs of the students duly in order for them to access their lectures regularly and on time.

There should be equitable distribution of resources, in that, Gambia College will grossly benefit because there is no tertiary institution in the country that is worthier for support than the Gambia College.
