CONGRATULATORY MESSAGE TO THE PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF THE GAMBIA AND THE CHANCELLOR OF THE UNIVERSITY OF THE GAMBIA
The University of The Gambia Students’ Union wishes to send its profound and heartfelt congratulations to the President of the Republic of The Gambia who doubles as the Chancellor of the University of The Gambia on his re-election, and subsequent swearing-in that ushered-in his second term in office.
Your Excellency, the Students’ Union stands on the conviction that your overwhelming success at the polls in December has been premised on the undiluted trust and high reverence the people of The Gambia reposed in you and your government, courtesy of the meritorious progress you have championed for the country so far.
Your Excellency, we appreciate the sterling efforts your government posited in the development of the University of The Gambia. However, despite those remarkable strides, we wish to put to your notice the existence of a myriad of issues that continue to undermine your efforts. Hence, we wish to resonate that your swift intervention is earnestly needed at the only state-university – the highest citadel of learning – entrusted with the affairs of moulding and shaping the instruments for change, progress and development of our beloved nation. Your Excellency, your swift intervention will unarguably promote and foster quality education, as reflected in the resolutions submitted for your highest consideration in early September, 2021.
Your Excellency, the University of The Gambia community exhorts that due recognition be accorded to it by your good office and government as your immediate and integral partner in nation-building. In the same light, we wish to remind you that, The Gambia shall rely on the young and vibrant human resource produced by the University of the Gambia for sustainability of the developmental strides imprinted so far by your government. We are the engine for sustainable development that will complement your efforts in building and upholding your invaluable legacy.
Consequently, Your Excellency, the Students’ Union wishes to assure you of its utmost dedication, and unflinching support and contributions towards the attainment of your national development plans and our collective aspirations.
While we remain hopeful that the resolutions before your desk would mark the beginning of your renewed efforts towards the development of the University of The Gambia, accept our sincerest congratulations and best wishes on your second term in office.
UNIVERSITY OF THE GAMBIA STUDENTS’ UNION
