HAPPY NEW YEAR! 2018 WILL BRING RENEWED PRIDE TO OUR COUNTRY
The New Year will bring many changes.
They will depend on our working together to realise our dreams
2017 was an extraordinary year for our country. Though we take rightful pride in these achievements, we know that they are only a start. Of course any year brings its challenges, that’s true for each of us personally, as much as for our country and the world.
But the real test is not whether challenges come, it’s how we face them. Whether we allow a task to overcome us or tackle it head on with purpose and resolve.
This past year has reminded us how much we can achieve if we work together.
Our confidence grows out of the way in which Gambians from every background and all walks of life have joined hands to deal with the issues facing us.
For us all, therefore, the new year must be one in which each and every one of us shares the responsibilities for building on the foundation that has been laid.
This is the very beginning of a new era that the people hope will bring them liberty and prosperity. They do not want a simple change of face.
Our achievements so far have shown what can be done when we set aside petty differences and together pursue the common good.
By working together we can build The Gambia of our dreams. I believe 2018 can be a year of renewed confidence and pride in our country.
I wish you all a happy, prosperous and fulfilling New Year.
