His Excellency the President of the Republic of The Gambia, Sheikh Professor Alhaji Dr Yahya AJJ Jammeh is pleased to present to the gallant women of The Gambia a special present, on the occasion of his 46th Birthday. His Excellency the President has directed that the tractors presented to the Governors for use in their various regions should be handed over to the women groups in their respective regions.
These tractors should from henceforth be owned and managed by the women groups in conformity with The Gambia Women's Federation structures at the District and Regional levels. This gesture of the President is in recognition of the significant role the women of The Gambia play in the socio-economic development of this country, especially in the area of food and agriculture. The Regional Governors should effect these transfers immediately.
