 Gov’t Still Renews Hopes To Host OIC Summit In 2023

His Excellency, President Adama Barrow has renewed hopes with government intends to possibly host the OIC Summit in 2023.

 He said that the Gambia government is currently negotiating with the secretariat and member countries for possible hosting of the Summit.

President Adama Barrow made this disclosure to journalists at the State house on Wednesday as he wrapped up his meet with the people tour which was convened with government project sites visits.

The 2022 tour ended with inspections to assess the progress of the ongoing projects at the VVIP Lounge at Banjul International Airport, to the airport junction-widening of Bertil Harding highway, to Sukuta traffic light, Janbanjkelly highway, Nusrat Senior Secondary School and Tanjeh, Tujereng-KunkujangMadiana road among other projects.

However, President Barrow went on by giving assurance to surely organize the OIC Summit, while giving reflection to the most recent African Religious Ministers and Ullamas conference hosted by the Gambia organized by the World Muslim League which he said was connected to the OIC.

 According President Barrow, the World Muslim League wanted to organize a regional conference from which they choose the Gambia as the host of the conference which also served as a test case for the Gambia to learn on how to organize the proposed OIC Summit.

President Barrow noted that it is not the size of the country that matters, while giving assurance that the Gambia can host the summit, adding that, though, a fixed day has not been scheduled.

“Our intention is to host the summit in 2023. We are negotiating with the secretariat and the member countries diplomatically to ensure that we have a date that we think we will be prepared enough to organize the OIC, because the members are also supporting us,” President Barrow concluded.
