Gambia: President Adama Barrow: The size of military is to be reduced

By: Yerro N Jallow.

I entirely agree with President Barrow on this one, the Gambia does not require a large military force, what’s we need thought is and effective and responsible military serving the national interest. For example, in the past we’ve seen how the military was politicized and tribalised by dictator Jammeh serving his interest. President Barrow needs to take more stringent measures to reform our military. The security of the country should be paramount as there wouldn’t be any meaningful development without peace and security. People who were wrongly enlisted in to army by Jammeh should be expel,we cannot compromise our military with criminals and rebels.When it comes to the military, we need young, educated, healthy and talented youths, trained them and send them to overseas studies to better serve the military.President Barrow should reduce the number of so-called Jammeh’s officers and generals that continue to suck our economy for the past 22 years.

In some other countries even in Senegal you can count the number of Captains, colonels, lieutenants, and generals but in the Gambia it seems everyone is an officer. This very expensive for a poor economy like the Gambia, we cannot maintain it. This is what President Barrow told Journalists at the Press briefings. As part of the security reform process, the size of the Gambia Armed Forces will have be to cut down, President Adama Barrow has said a in press conference with journalists on Tuesday at State House.

The president was responding to a question posed in light of the slow security reform process citing numerous factors that have to be put into play.

“With the military, we have started checking records how people came in to the army and this is a process that is going on,” he went on. “It is all part of the security reform, but we need finance also because we need to reduce the size of the army; in doing that there must be handshake with officers we don’t need in the military.”

He assured the keenly attentive journalists that the process is going on, citing the importance of the military as an institution to his government.

“The security reform is in place and the process is going on. We have a security adviser who is working on this security reform process,” he divulged. “The security sector is very important for this government. It’s an institution that is very very important and the system was polluted for 22years.”

The head of state said his government does not want the same mistake which gave rise to setting up a team that will look into the reform process.

“We don’t want to make mistakes, we want to make the right decision that’s why we have a team that is working on it and we are waiting for the white paper.”

He said the team will help them to determine what their next move will be.

“If we get the white paper, that is the time we will know what will be our next move, but the process have started.”

Sadibou Badjie Bajagarr It’s a bad move. Who will create employment for those soldiers to be dismissed?
It’s a security risk having dismissed soldiers all over the country, going in and out of the country.
And note it, any President that comes in place of Barro will reinstate them back. It’s not a long term solution. Why did Barro reinstate those soldiers dismissed by Jammeh and also those accused of treason.?

Sadibou Badjie Bajagarr Barrow and Dabo know nothing about security and any silly move would be deadly. Let him contact security experts for reforms before turning our tiny country into something else Yerro N Jallow. You are just yapping about this security issues but they’re not your area, you don’t know naada about security like Barro and Dabo. Always give peace a chance, i know how this casamance vs Senegal issue started. I wish the necessary reforms are to done with great consciousness for the general good.
