Gambia’s President Adama Barrow has reminded the newly appointed ministers and other civil servants in his government that together, they can make the Gambia the envy of many countries.

According to him, this can be attained by committing themselves to serve national interest in their engagements.

President Barrow was speaking during the swearing in ceremony of six new ministers into the Cabinet as well as the new Secretary General and Head of the Civil Service, the Secretary to Cabinet and Permanent Secretaries at a ceremony held at the Kairaba beach Hotel.

“Individually, we can change our attitude towards work and take positive steps to making a difference in our institution. Together, we can make the Gambia envy for many countries by committing ourselves to serve our national interest in our engagements. Our individual interests are embedded in the national interest” he said.

He reminded them that his government pledged to engage in institutional and legal reforms, thus, need politicians and technicians to make it possible.

“I urge you to work hard as professionals to support the political agenda of my administration for us to achieve our goal. I want us to leave a legacy of institutions, laws and procedures that will enhance our democracy, social, economic and political development for our people” he concluded.
