Lower Fulladu Chief Appeals for public taps, Electricity supply boost

Saturday, December 29, 2007

The chief of Lower Fulladu in the CRR has appealed to the Gambian Government to beef up the power supply and the number of public taps in the area. Chief Momadu Baldeh expressed the belief that such a boost would put a stop to women utilising impure water and having to travel long distances to fetch water.

Speaking exclusively to The Point in Sankulay Kunda, Mr. Baldeh said the preoccupation is for The Gambia to take its rightful place in the international community as a proud nation which can be proud of its defence of the welfare of humanity.

Mr. Baldeh also called on Gambians to appreciate the peace and comfort we are enjoying and to strive to maintain it at any cost.

“I call on all patriotic Gambians and friends of The Gambia to participate in the socio-economic development of the country”. He added that President Jammeh is making every Gambian benefit from the juicy fruits of socio-economic development.

The chief commended the government’s commitment and efforts describing them as hardworking. “Suffice to say however, without a steady power supply and good water modern life as we know it grinds to a halt”, he said. He added, “I’m calling on the government to provide us with public taps and street lights in our area”. The chief highlighted the importance of human life saying that water is life and therefor it importance cannot be over emphasised. He finally thanked the president who he said has love and great concern for Gambians.
