The government needs to settle down and know that there is a long way ahead, said Hon. Halifa Sallah, adding: “We are just crawling; we need to stand and then walk before running.”
The National Assembly member for Serrekunda quoted by the Point Newspaper made this remark during the second ordinary session of the 2017 legislative year at the National Assembly in Banjul.
Hon. Sallah told his colleague parliamentarians that they should direct every word and action in the National Assembly “as we are having is a transitional government inheriting an order with a mandate to build a new Gambia”.
“Consent, truth, good faith as well as national interest must guide everyone in the operation of the country,” he said.
“It is important to bear in mind that unless you understand the challenges of the country you cannot be able to provide the policy, plans, programmes and projects to address.”
