BRIKAMA THE POLITICAL POWERHOUSE OF THE GAMBIA
Let me begin by saying thanks to Alhagi Pa Sanjally Bojang one of the founding fathers of the PPP and his fellow Brikamakas .
The likes of Jombo Bojang, Famara Wassa Touray, Saikouba Dandanba, Malang Ida Bojang,Jerreba kullay, Dembo Jatta,Langding Sallly Bojang and our legendary griot Kora player Alhagi Bai Conteh not forgetting our beloved Imam Ba Alhagi Karamo Touray….
Pa Alhagi Sanjally Bojang pave the way into our political successes in one way or the other. He made this journey for a reason. It’s humbling, but in my heart I know he did it for the betterment of our town and the country ,he do it because he believe in what this country can be. In the face of colonialism , he believe there can be independent. In the face of despair, he believe there can be hope. In the face of a politics also he believe one day A native of Kombo Brikama can be the president of Republic of The Gambia..
Dr Ismalia Ceesay of Citizens Alliance is the one and this is our chance to bring the dreams of our political founding fathers into to reality.
Politics divided us for too long, i believe we can be one people, reaching for what’s possible, building that more perfect Brikama and The Gambia.
It was here, in Brikama kombo central western division , where North, South and East come together that reminded me of the essential decency of The Gambian people – where Pa Alhagie Sanjally Bojang came to believe that through this decency, we can build a more hopeful Gambia from our colonial masters .
And that is why, in the shadow of Sateh-Ba where Alhagi Sanjally Bojang once called on a divided sayfolou (chiefs) to stand together with common hopes and common dreams… We are blessed with our own son. The son of the best administrator of The Gambia forestry department in west coast Ceesay forest as he was popularly know.
Dr Ismaila Ceesay was born in the centre of Brikama and he knows during the rainy season how our market and town look like so he knows our Problem in Brikama and the surrounding as well as the entire country because he got a dream.. What a young and energetic man…Ceesay Manding Morrey.
That’s why I want Brikama to rally behind Dr Ismaila Ceesay as our Presidential candidate for 2021 presidential elections . He was born in Bojang kunda, Suma kunda Mansaringsu, Sanneh kunda ,Brikama and in The Gambia he’s our son brother uncle and friend. He spent a lot of time learning the way out from dictatorship and corruption. He’s been there long enough to know that the ways and conditions of our country must change especially Brika Brika Brikama a town with 5 names as Tata Dinding Joberteh rightfully said in his songs.
My proverbs of the day:- An old road leads you to an old town .
