Editors note: Thanks President Barrow for diversifying your cabinet. Bakary Badjie is the first Jolla to be appointed in your cabinet. Thanks for listening to us. It was few days ago, that I raised the issue of the Jollas’ absence in cabinet, TRRC, CRC and the Janneh Commission commissioners. Well done.
