Rohey Malick Lowe, the Mayor of the City Council of Banjul said every citizen of the Gambia owes an obligation to protect the city and therefore they will not go out to seek for assistance in this crucial moment.

The Mayor of Banjul City Council (BCC) made these statements yesterday March 24th 2020, during a presentation ceremony of equipment donated by the Gambia Competition and Consumers Protection Commission (GCCPC), to the Albert Market in Banjul. The donated items include hand-washing buckets and sanitizers.

Mayor Lowe said they expect people to come out and assist the City of Banjul, as they put in place preventive measures to stem the spread of the Corona virus in the City.

“I see children roam the streets of Banjul and parents should try and keep their children at home,” she advised.

Manyima Bojang the Director of Legal enforcement at the GCCPC said they have recognized the efforts of the BCC in their strife to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus.

“As a consumer protection commission, we deem it necessary to provide sanitary materials and hand washing buckets for deployment at public places in the City of Banjul as part of ongoing preventive measures to protect everybody,” she said.

Mrs. Bojang commended the Gambia Red Cross Society for the services they are providing to the public.

Momodou Jallow, one of the Red Cross volunteers on his part said people should constantly use preventive measures recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) because “prevention is better than cure’’; that if we put all preventive measures in place, it will help.
