Ceesay Explains Why He Decided To Run For Chairmanship

The Nationals People’s Party candidate for Brikama Area Council Seedy Ceesay, on Tuesday explained why he decided to run for chairmanship and why he left his business and journalism work to join politics.

That’s one way of bringing about the change we want.

I therefore appeal to your best hopes, not your fears or doubts about politics.” He clarifies

Ceesay made these remarks during his endorsement by the Gambia Amputee Association.

The NPP candidate reassures the Gambia Amputee Association and said that he cannot thank them enough for the honour and privilege of their endorsement.

“I shall vindicate the confidence you have in me with a performance in office that you will be proud of. I decided to throw my hat in the ring to become the next Chairman of Brikama Area Council, because I wish to join those in public office who want to drive the rhetoric of new Gambia to its reality, its fulfillment.” He said

He further emphasized that the  government  has set them on the right track to mainstreaming the interests of disadvantaged groups and that after almost a decade of tireless advocacy for the passing of the Persons with Disabilities Bill, which many rights advocates had regarded as a key step towards greater inclusion in our society,
