First of all, I would like to thank Almighty Allah for granting us this day. To be independent is a very beautiful feeling, especially when it is accompanied with peace and harmony.  The credit goes to our leaders right from 1965 to date. I can’t express enough of how excited I am for the golden jubilee. Long live The Gambia!

As a student, looking at the records back from 1965, The Gambia has achieved a lot. 50 years ago, our colonial masters were not sure that we could take care of ourselves. I am the proudest Gambian today!

I follow the news keenly, there are countries in Africa that are older than us but they envy us greatly because we are developing rapidly. I pray that the development will continue forever.

I am very happy to witness the golden jubilee. I can still remember when the British flag was replaced by our own flag – the red, white, blue and green.  It gives me great pleasure to see what our beloved country has become. Special thanks to Jawara and President Jammeh.
