Madikon Trading managing director Lang Konteh has congratulated President-elect Adama Barrow joining scores of prominent citizens in greeting the president on his electoral success.
In a letter written to the Secretary General and Head of the Civil Service Noah Touray, Mr Konteh thanked the president for being sensitive to the needs and aspirations of Gambians.
He wrote: “On behalf of the management and entire staff of Madikon Trading Limited, my family and my humble self, I wish to convey through you our emphatic felicitations to His Excellency the President of the Republic of The Gambia Adama Barrow on his landslide victory in the recently concluded presidential poll.
“The unprecedented voter turnout of 90% and President Barrow’s subsequent resounding victory underpinned by an unparalleled margin and manifestations of the trust and confidence the electorate have in his leadership. The vibrant democratic dispensation ushered in the country by the president crowned with his prolific leadership are enough reasons to earn him such a feat.
“Furthermore, the massive infrastructural development spearheaded by the Barrow administration such as the electricity expansion programme, as well as the extension and upgrading of educational and health facilities across the country speak volumes of President Barrow’s attachment to the general welfare of the Gambian populace and the overall development of The Gambia. I therefore share the joy of the Gambian people in the president’s re-election to serve another term in office, which I believe will spur further development strides in the country.
“While I thank his Excellency for being sensitive to the needs and aspirations of Gambians, I pray for the First Family’s continued good health, long life and prosperity.”
