Letter of gratitude and commendation
On behalf of my family and the community of Pirang Jola Kunda, I would like to extend our warmest regards, best wishes, profound gratitude and appreciation to Your Excellency, the first family, cabinet and the entire government of the Republic of The Gambia, for what Your Excellency has done and continues to do for the citizens and residents of The Gambia.
Your Excellency has demonstrated and proven without an iota of doubt, the exemplary leadership that warranted the need for a change of government in order to bring about much needed development to the doorsteps of every Gambian regardless of tribal religious and or political affiliations.
The numerous infrastructural development projects including rural electrification, construction of schools, hospitals, first class roads, and bridges have rightfully earned you the enviable title of Babili Mansa. In the same vein therefore, Your Excellency’s recent magnanimity that resulted in the release of hundreds of prisoners and the promotion of thousands of security personnel to various ranks should deservedly earn you the noble title Balafa Mansa.
In sincere appreciation of Your Excellency’s benevolent gestures to better the lives of the people of The Gambia, we shall continue to pray for Your Excellency’s personal wellbeing and that of the first family, cabinet and the government of the Republic of The Gambia. May the Omnipotent and Omnipresent Allah guide and protect all of you in all your endeavours.
On behalf of the community of Pirang Jola Kunda, please accept Your Excellency the assurances of our continued unflinching and faithful allegiance.
Imam, Pirang Jola Kunda Mosque
