Abubacarr M A Kinteh, the leader of the National Convention Party, has lamented the large-scale loss of lives at seas among Gambian youths.
Mr Kinteh, who was addressing a rally in Njawara, said his party is very disturbed about the reports and called for solutions to encourage youths to stay and work here.
“We must help the young people love their country and realize their dreams right here to avoid the disheartening developments on the back way,” he said. The NCP leader also spoke on the need to promote the welfare of women, saying that the NCP has a strong history of women empowerment.
The party leader extolled the people of Njawara for always standing by the government of the day since the first republic.
“I urge you to continue supporting the NCP and law-abiding,” he told supporters.
Mr Kinteh commended his party chairman, Mustapha Touray, describing him as ambitious and passionate about the development of Njawara.
