ADAMA BARROW: GAMBIA PRESIDENT FINALLY INAUGURATED.
Icheoku says after the high wire drama that was the former president Yahya Jammeh attempted botching of his election as Gambia president, Adama Barrow was inaugurated at last as president of The Gambia. In his remarks after the ceremony, he said:- "For 22 years, the Gambian people yearned to live in a country where our diverse tribes will be bridged by tolerance and our determination to work together for the common good," he said. "One Gambia, one nation, one people."
Icheoku says hopefully his will not be another ugly chapter of the many unfulfilled dreams of Africans, who excitedly elect a president hoping that they chose right, only to be disappointed down the road as it turns out that they only armed another criminal vagabond in power. ICHEOKU hopes too that he will be mindful of the many hope reposed on him including the effort mounted by Nigeria and other West African countries including the United Nations to validate his mandate and govern not to disappoint these people in addition to his Gambian people who elected him. Icheoku reiterates, NO DRAMA ADAMA. Congratulations.
