Ambassador Miatta Urges West African troops not to Compromised Peace and Stability in Gambia

Ambassador Miatta Lily French, the ECOWAS country representative, whilst  addressing the ECOMIG-Ghanaian contingent under Gamcoy 7 marking Ghana’s independence and Ecowas peace medal wearing celebrations in Barra, he has urged the West African troops in The Gambian to make sure that their duty to ensure peace and stability in the country is not compromised, and for them to remain neutral. 

Ambassador French further recommended the ECOMIG troops to continue to support the Gambian defense and security forces, and to also assist the local population in fulfilling the mission’s mandate.

She stated that the Ghanaian troops cover a very sensitive area of the ECOMIG operation and that their responsibility at the Barra ferry terminal is very crucial to this mission, adding that their conduct, civil-military activities, and key leadership engagement and community within the  area of deployment impact the success of the entire ECOWAS mission in The Gambia.

“I commend all of you and encourage you to maintain your dedication and hard work in the remaining days of your tour of duty. Wear your medals with pride, for you have earned them and let them leave a legacy of maintaining peace in The Gambia’’ She said.

Ambassador French urged the troops to continue to engage and support the communities through donations and medical outreach to meet their need to improve the image and acceptance of ECOMIG. In which she also congratulated the Ghanaians on their independence anniversary.

Colonel Cheikh Omar Tamba, the commander of ECOMIG highlighted that the Ghanaian troops under Gamcoy 7 have demonstrated a tireless devotion to duty and live up to their motto of ‘we are dependable and never give up’. And that the troops have continued to ensure security and smooth operation at the Barra-Banjul ferry terminals.

Mr Tamba added “Gamcoy 7 always provides security to the president, dignitaries, and mission-related movements around the North Bank Region by providing escorts and other support,” he said.
