Gambia For All New Year Message Of The Secretary General And Party Leader, Bakary Dabo
Fellow members of the GFA family and the wider Gambian public!
As we come to the end of the year 2020, I take this opportunity to extend to you and your families and to all Gambians everywhere our very warm New Year greetings. This year has been particularly difficult for the world because of the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Gambia, like the rest of the world, has had its fair share of misfortune and tragedy. It is against this sober background that this year’s celebrations are taking place and I take this opportunity to express, on behalf of GFA and on my behalf, our deep-felt condolences to all the families who have lost their loved ones during this tragic period. To the doctors, nurses, and other frontline workers, we express our deep appreciation for their hard work and commitment to the Gambian people. And to the whole country, our determination to rise up to the challenges of the coming year is affirmed.
For the Party, the year 2020 has been particularly busy. Since registration in January, our party has made great strides in reaching out to the Gambian people and getting the message out to the electorate. Constituency committees have been set up in all electoral districts in the country, and a process of consolidation and establishment of branch committees is now firmly in progress. We are confident that this programme will soon be completed and thus provide the party a solid foundation to promote and enhance the mobilization of the electorate. These achievements have only been possible through the hard work and sacrifice of the members and sympathisers of the party and I take this opportunity to thank you all, once again, for your contribution to the success.
The New Year 2021 will be an eventful year in the electoral calendar of the country. In addition to the preparations for the Presidential elections, the party plans during the first quarter of 2021, to convene the congress of the Women’s League and the Youth League to allow these important organs to elect their respective Executive Bureau. This will ensure that these organs are more fully integrated within the party structures and further strengthen the party’s mobilization efforts. Similarly, you will be informed of other party activities planned during the course of the year.
As we prepare for the elections ahead, I am confident that you will continue to demonstrate the commitment and hard work that have characterized GFA membership. The past has clearly shown that it is only through these qualities that we can ensure victory in December 2021.
Once again, I wish you all a happy and prosperous New Year!DEWENATI! WAATO SIITA!
Hon. Bakary Dabo
