Sidia S. Jatta, the National Assembly member for Wulil West and Chairperson of PDOIS has said that the PDOIS Congress is the beginningof a new beginning because it is where discussion on how to chart destiny of the Gambia is being made.

Honourable Jatta was speaking before a large number of delegates in Ngayen Sanjal at a PDOIS Congress held on Saturday 29 December 2018.

“When we started this party, the task to which we committed ourselves is to lay lasting foundation for a party that will become a fundamental instrument for the transformation of this country,” he said.

Jatta said unemployment and poverty remain and are still amplifying. He added that farmers still cry for a better life. Jatta stated that the price for the farm produce declared by the government cannot reduce the poverty of farmers in the country.

He said we are still in a nation of beggars. Begging, he said is a fundamental contributor to poverty.

“Begging will never change any body’s poverty. In fact, begging is a fundamental contributor to poverty. It is neither good for the giver nor the receiver,” Jatta said.

The Wuli West NAM shocked delegates when he said that each time, he sees a contemporary departs he knows that he is next and alerted the young to re-energize their commitment to system change. Jatta added that the congress is in essence the Congress of the young people.
