Banjul Mayoral Aspirant Delivers Tobaski Message

Mamos Media

Lizzie Eunson, a certified banker, who is aspiring to become the next Banjul Mayor in the up-coming Local Government Elections in 2018, has delivered a special Tobaski message to all Gambians especially the Muslims of Banjul in observance of the feast of Eid Ul Adha, to be celebrated on September 1st, 2017.

Madam Eunson who is on an international appointment in Ivory Coast wrote this special Tobaski message on her face book page on Tuesday on 29th August, 2017.

While wishing all Gambians a happy and blessed feast of Tobaski, Madam Eunson also complained of the high cost of Tobaski rams and basic commodities, etc.

She said: “As Mayor of Banjul, Council will henceforth be actively involved in the facilitation of constraints affecting its populace. Service, service, service.
Council will dialogue with ram sellers outside of Banjul to see how best to bring in rams at affordable prices as Banjulians suffer the most. I am a banker by profession, I will as Mayor interface with financial institutions to create funding /saving schemes during such financially exhaustive times. 
Council will be involved in matters as they relate to health considerations. Partnering with medical actors to facilitate educative programs on TV, radio and otherwise addressing issues where improper dietary considerations especially at times when over feasting can be detrimental to one’s health. 
I will ensure that BCC assures prompt disposal of all debris, especially arising from rams disposables which can be detrimental to the environmental and aesthetic considerations of the city especially during the rainy season. The failed systems of our big gutters of Grant and Jones streets have paralyzed our drainage systems.”

She promised to find a solution to remedy the situation once elected as mayor of Banjul in 2018.

Below is the full text of her message.

 

Good day, I want to wish all Gambians and Muslims in particular a very Blessed and happy Eid in advance, full of blessing and ‘ Hewal ” to all while wishing all our pilgrims a safe return home. Feast days: a blessing from God are ushered in with a lot of undue stress and anxiety nowadays as prices keep on rising exorbitantly and services are poor.
’ HARR CHERR NA. ‘’Commodities : NDOUGA CHERR NA ’’.

Light keeps going on and off. Tailors cannot finish sewing all the clothes. Food getting spoilt. Filth and stagnant water all over. Mosquitoes galore.

All these inconveniencies have to stop and YES can stop with effective pro active planning, partnering and proper management. 
As Mayor of Banjul, Council will henceforth be actively involved in the facilitation of constraints affecting its populace. Service, service, service.
Council will dialogue with Ram sellers outside of Banjul to see how best to bring in rams at affordable prices as Banjulians suffer the most. I am a banker by profession, I will as Mayor interface with financial institutions to create funding /saving schemes during such financially exhaustive times. 
Council will be involved in matters as they relate to health considerations. Partnering with medical actors to facilitate educative programs on TV, radio and otherwise addressing issues where improper dietary considerations especially at times when over feasting can be detrimental to one’s health. 
I will ensure that BCC assures prompt disposal of all debris, especially arising from rams disposables which can be detrimental to the environmental and aesthetic considerations of the city especially during the rainy season. The failed systems of our big gutters of Grant and Jones streets have paralyzed our drainage systems.
We will revisit various alternative energy options for Banjul, both previously proposed and new.

As Mayor I will not hesitate to take on any issues frontally with urgency and seriousness be they popular or otherwise in as far as it relates to Banjul and the uplifting of its populace, thus my move today in addressing: the high cost of rams, rise in commodities, the health and safety considerations during its aftermath, unavailability of dependable electrical supply and finally the filth, stench and ultimate sicknesses due to improper debris disposal. 
Once more, Eid Mubarak to all. Let us celebrate in peace and love of our neighbour and mankind. Let’s keep the children safe. I thank you for your time.

Lizzie Eunson. August 29th. 2017.
