President Adama Barrow has called on Gambians to be law abiding and reject divisive politics.
The Gambian leader, who is also the Chancellor of the University of the Gambia, was speaking during the 12th convocation ceremony of the University of the Gambia held at the Qcity Saturday.
“As law-abiding citizens, it is obligatory for all of us to reject divisive politics, and put the interest of The Gambia first,” Barrow said. “No citizen should allow our political or religious differences to corrupt our judgement, and derail the march to prosperity and a better and peaceful Gambia.”
Barrow also called on Gambians to adopt measures to strengthen the rule of law, social cohesion, respect for human rights, good governance, dialogue and mediation, justice, sustainable development and national reconciliation.
He added that, it is mandatory upon all peace-loving citizens to be civil and disciplined, and to exhibit peaceful dispositions both in their relationships with other citizens and the state.
