Wahab Taa Saidy – Let the current government make good drainage system in Banjul before selling our sovereignty to the Chinese people in the name of Banjul-Barra bridge.

Lamine Mls Mls Darboe i don’t understand, I see this gained evriday in Angola ,I live in Angola Luanda, I’m from Gambia in brikama, how is responsible for
Pa Louis Thomasi Wa this is right in front of our own house. Fix Banjul first before fixing the bridge Mr.President. A mega city before a mega bridge.
Salieu Sanyang We Banjulians should open our eyes and not wait for this so called presidents who don’t have Banjul at heart, we banjulians should take responsibilities and take the capital in our own hands and do something for ourselves rather than this selfish leaders we are waiting for.
Sylvanus Leigh We voted UDP. It’s time we taste our own medicine…
Fatima Emma Jatta No I don’t believe this is a dream
Matthias George Jatta – President Barrow, the promises should start at your yard – Banjul!
Kumba Conateh Mayoress must see this. Banjul needs help.
Sona Green Energy I think we need little Bridges all over town to cross when it rains then think sbout bridging Banjull Barra
Maimuna Nancy Singhateh It’s very sad to see Banjul this way.
Fatou Jallow Banjul is sinking and the government doesn’t care. This is very sad and annoying
Fulani Tukulor – Banjul is flooding while the Mayoress of the city is still trying to load a container full of Kong to Dakar..😀😀😀
Abdoulie Lowe – So Moses saw the rain coming to Banjul and he ran away and promise the people of Niumi a bridge? This is Banjul as we speak… smdh… Should we celebrate a mere promise of a billion dollars bridge or ask for roads and an efficient drainage system for Banjulians? You decide!
Nagiru Jabi — Masha Allah my dear brother there too many priorities development the government needs to develop before spending 2billion dollars on Banjul – Barra bridge. Which will bring more job loss, business closure and virtual ghost town at both end. Let’s equip the hospitals, sanitation, electricity, water, better schools, you can continue naming more and more. These are priorities NOT Banjul – Barra bridge
Nyang Njie — Infrastructure, Infrastructure, Infrastructure. This is Gambia’s greatest deficiency as it relates to our development aspirations. The foundation of eco o.ic prosperity and socioeconomic development is anchored on sound public infrastructural portfolio. Key on this portfolio is drainage. Gamvia from independence to date has inherited poor drainage problem but to compound this festering perennial problem, we have relegated urban planning in the back benches of our development tools.
Public poli y practitioners particularly urban planners are either myopic or indifferent to the forces of the torrential downpours that consume the Gambian metropolis every 8 months. Building sustainable communities starts with having functional drain systems and waste disposal. Our national infrastructure deficit especially within the Greater Banjul Area calls for an emergency summit between the local governments and the national government to chart a way forward both in terms of policy and funding mechanisms to ameliorate the plight of city dwellers. Let’s be focused and resolute about our development aspirations. Finally, we need an integrated approach to development not a modular concept.
