He noted that the Ambassador has been inviting them with the Imam Ratib to her residence on the occasions of the (Iftar) during the month of Ramadan where she extends hospitality to all of them.

“She thought it wise in her own wisdom to reciprocate that visit today,” he said.

He added that the visit was of very significance to the Imam and the entire community.

He advanced that“it means to the Imam that his regular preach of peace in the Muslim community and the world at large is highly respected and shared interest with the government of the United States of America.”

Noting that it coincides with the Imam’s preach of peace wherever he goes on the pulpits and in social gatherings throughout the country.

He told the VOD that “the Ambassador was very nice in remembering and valuing the origin of her connections to the Gambian people when she served as a Peace Corp she was traveling and had to stop in the Gambia where a Gambian who valued our regular traditions in extending hospitalities to strangers invited her to his home.”

He concluded by thanking Ambassador Cromer, her husband and the entire delegates for the goodwill visit.
