President Adama Barrow today presented two new buses to the Council of the University of the Gambia Students Union as a fulfilment of a promise made made to them.
Handing over the keys to the student representatives, President Barrow called on them to maintain peace and stability for the country’s development. “If there was no peace in the country, we could not have been standing here to do this presentation,” President Barrow noted.
President Barrow urged the students to focus on their education to prepare themselves better as future leaders. He assured them of his government’s commitment to education as a top priority. Highlighting his confidence in the country’s youths, President Barrow is hopeful that the next president after him will come from among the young. He cited former President Jawara’s address to school children during the Independence Day celebration at McCarthy Square in 1979, calling on young people to prepare for the country’s future leaders.
The President said he was among those students, but little did he know that “a poor boy from Mangkamang Kunda” would be one of the country’s future Presidents.
