EYEAFRICA TV: Banjul, The Gambia: Mayor Rohey Malick Lowe of Banjul said during her short tenure as head of Banjul City Council, she and her team have registered significant development in the capital city in a way that has never happened before.
Addressing a recent rally of the United Democratic Party (UDP) in Banjul, Mayor Lowe said their successes include putting up serious reforms at the city’s council because it was in a broken situation in structure and operation.
Mayor Lowe spoke high of her team, saying the progress they have brought to Banjul has led to the addressing of most of the ghost workers.
She told the gathering that their reform process has also ensured that appointments are not done based on relationship but on merit and qualification.
As Banjul continue to face daunting development transformation challenges, Mayor Lowe said they have put in place term of reference and mandate for every staff of the council, starting from herself to the last person.
According to her, the new strategy has helped the council to maximise its revenue base to forty-two percent, saying within a period of twenty-one months, she and her team can pride themselves of bringing transformative development in Banjul as never before.
