Gamtel/Gamcel Conduct Set-Setal

Friday, February 8, 2008

Staff of Gamcel and Gamtel recently jointly conducted Set-Setal at the Gamtel multimedia training institutes (GTM) at Kanafing. The exercise was part of preparations for the Independence anniversary celebrations, which are scheduled for the 18th of this month.

In an interview with The Point the Public Relations Manager (PRM), Mr. Amadou Touray, emphasised that this Set-Setal was very special in particular as it is the last Set-Setal before the anniversary of Independence. He said the cleaning exercise needs to be undertaken in this area as it is close to The Independence Stadium which needs to be clean for the forthcoming celebrations.

PRM Touray said that GTM is open to both Gamtel and Gamcel staff and the general public, adding that different students take their courses at the institution.

He added, “This Set-Setal was really to answer the call of President Jammeh who initiated this idea which should be of interest not just to the people of The Gambia but to everyone who lives in the Republic of The Gambia.”

Mr. Touray added that the event is contributing to the development of health which is a fundamental issue for everyone.

He said that people cannot be productive and contribute to the socio economic development of the country if they do not have their health.

The Gamtel PRM further explained that Gamtel should be commended for the fact that have been ahead of the crowd in providing fuel to the private truck owners for waste disposal. He expressed the hope that this would spur other businesses to come on board and join in the Set-Setal efforts.

“We have always participated in full and continue to do so. We have a very high consideration for health and that is why we are supporting the RVTH particularly the Gamtel Ward. We also sponsor the Death house and the APRC hospital in Farafenni,” PRM Touray told The Point.
In conclusion he said, “I am appealing to companies, Banks, Supermarkets and restaurants to provide dustbins and place them in various locations.”
