RE: PRESIDENT BARROW DECLARES TUESDAY, 25TH MAY 2021 A PUBLIC HOLIDAY IN THE GAMBIA IN OBSERVANCE OF THE AFRICAN LIBERATION DAY

In exercise of the powers vested in him by the 1997 Constitution, under Section 102 Sub-Section (e) and Section 76 Sub Section (2), His Excellency, The President of The Republic, Mr. Adama Barrow, is please to declare tomorrow Tuesday, 25th  May 2021 a Public Holiday throughout The Gambia in observance of African Liberation Day.

President Barrow urges Gambians and all residents in the country to join their African brethren on the Continent and across the Diaspora to seriously reflect on the significance of this special day in our collective struggle against tyranny, imperial domination and colonial subjugation for centuries.

In moments like this, President Barrow asks that we remember our Founding Fathers like the late Ghanaian President Dr. Kwame Nkrumah who led the struggle against colonial domination and exploitation. It is because of great men like the late Osagyefo Kwame Nkrumah that we are all a free people, he said.
