Desk Officer Grateful to President Jammeh, Electorate
Wednesday, February 06, 2008
The Desk Officer for North Bank Region (NBR), Hon. Alhaji Ablie Suku Singhateh, has expressed strong words of gratitude to the electorate in North Bank for showing unalloyed support to and solidarity with the APRC party in the just concluded local government elections.
Hon. Singhateh also paid a glowing tribute to the Head of State, also the Secretary General and leader of the APRC party, Alhaji Dr. Yahya Jammeh, for creating and nurturing a conducive atmosphere for accomplishment of numerous major projects in his region. This, he added, has clearly served as a catalyst for the ruling party’s admirable electoral victory in the recently held local government polls.
Speaking to this paper at the National Assembly offices on Independence Drive in Banjul, the APRC NBR desk officer said: “ Though we have seen some electoral defeats in some wards like Illiasa, Saba and Sabach Sanjal but cumulatively, we are far ahead of our opponents. The margin is in thousands. All this is made possible due to the stainless credentials of the APRC party and its leadership. The President and the party’s advancing development pace have already blazed the campaign trail for us, hence the APRC’s convincing victory. We sincerely thank the President because it’s thanks to his sterling efforts that we were able to maintain a firm ground. It made it very easy for us to convince the masses.”
To Hon. Singhateh, who is also a member of the Abuja-based ECOWAS Parliament, the people of North Bank Region will never betray the leader because he has a concern for them.
“When people in North Bank take stock of the APRC dispensation, they easily and quickly come round to the facts that it is the APRC that brought them electricity, potable water, built them a referral hospital in Farafenni, the Kerewan bridge, schools, health installations among many other good things of life,” said he.
He finally thanked the people of North Bank Region for peacefully conducting themselves before and after the elections.
Hon. Ousman Bah of Sabach Sanjal constituency and Tapha Saidy, Divisional Youth mobiliser, re-echoed similar sentiments.
Tapha Saidy thanked the divisional desk officer for his ‘immense’ financial and moral support.
