Brikama Area Council New Chairman Calls For Collective Achievement Beyond Partisan Lines

Yankuba Darboe, the newly sworn in chairman for the Brikama Area Council, has called for the appreciation and collectively carry a huge burden of expectation of the people to improve and register progress in the development of the region and their people.

He made these remarks on Wednesday as he took oath in office at a ceremony held at the Brikama Area Council premises. Ismaila Jallow, Councilor for Suba Ward was elected as the Vice Chairman of the Council which subsequently witnessed the swearing-in of 28 councilors.

However, he noted that this cannot be achieved without unity among themselves as the policymakers of the Council.He urged elected councilors to perform their duties to the best of their abilities.

He further challenged elected councilors to make the council the most successful of all predecessors.

He pointed out that electorates have given them the chance to fix the terrible conditions of their feeder or secondary roads, to properly manage their household wastes, clean their environments, improve their local markets.

He said the chance given to them include to create more market spaces, for their people, create lasting drainage systems that will ease water flows and prevent flooding their region.

“To support children in education and empower our youths by creating job opportunities for them and the rest of the unemployed in our region,” he said.

Chairman Darboe advanced that the Brikama Area Council has to change and all efforts must be made to effect change for the better.

He noted that there cannot be any dispute or denial of the fact that the institution, BAC, which many hopes of their people for development depend on, is corrupt and efficient. He said that they had failed our people for the longest of times.

“This must end and we must do everything within our strength to end it and end it now. The status quo is unsuitable and the plight of our people cannot and should not retrogress beyond the current limits.

Thus, we must yearn to change or be changed” he emphasized.

Darboe stated that “as a central government that preaches to be democratic, we expect you to appreciate and respect those democratic wishes and aspirations of our people of the West Coast region.”

“They are not naïve of the party affiliations and colors of the central government, but deliberately chose the leadership of their local government to be different,” he said.

 He added that this must be respected and in turn, the central government can expect respect from the local authorities.

However, he noted that they hope the central government will appreciate the fact and work with them to attain the development goals of their people.
