Gambian rookie President Adama Barrow can afford to hire a luxurious private jet to attend the United Nations General Assembly Summit and yet has no serious plans to revamp Gambia’s collapsed education infrastructure. Barrow has neglected this important sector for some unknown reasons. Lower Basic and Senior Secondary school students at Kaur, in the Central River Region of The Gambia, attend classes in such horrible conditions. Classroom floors, restrooms (toilets) and roofs are in a dilapidated conditions.
Millions of dollars of aid money trickled into the country since Barrow ascended into the Presidency in December of 2016. But so far, there is no indication as to whether such aid money has been invested into sectors such education, health, infrastructure and agriculture. Sanitary conditions in these schools are bad.
Adama Barrow has no clue about what he is doing. No amount of aid money can salvage this poor country called The Gambia. Corruption and nepotism are the driving forces behind Gambia’s underdevelopment.
