Members of the National Assembly spent the whole day yesterday debating the address of President Barrow’s state of the nation address on the 19th September, 2019. Up to the time of going to press last night, the lawmakers were still debating.
Some supported the President’s address while many more were critical of it.
Issues of concern included the three years/five years mandate, the need for the state of the nation address to be delivered at the beginning of the year, the white paper on the report by the Janneh Commission, the economy including trade, agriculture and the role of the private sector, fiscal issues, equality of all citizens and a host of other issues of national concern.
Foroyaa will be publishing the views of the National Assembly members and sum up the issues raised.
