Gambia’s President Adama Barrow has called on citizens to exercise patience as he tirelessly works with his team to fill the remaining ministerial positions in the new Cabinet.

He made the call on Monday during a meeting with foreign diplomats accredited to The Gambia.

“We are taking our time to select the best individuals for the jobs. We don’t want to rush. No hesitation” he said.

He recognized the support of Gambian during the campaign, election and transition period saying it was  a difficult two months of political logjam. He said though it was not easy, people were there to give out support throughout the period and that support is well recognized.

He reminded Gambians of the destructive 22 years APRC rule, saying things were very difficult with the people and so many things happened during the period that needs to be regularized.

President Barrow further said he inherited a government that was seriously polluted and needs serious reforms which definitely require support from everybody, every country and every international organizations so that the Gambia can be developed.

“Therefore, I am really appealing to Gambians to really exercise patience while this thing is being work out” he concluded.
