President Adama Barrow says Gambians have expressed their appreciation about his government’s programmes to improve their lives. 

Mr Barrow is on a month long nationwide Meet-the-People’s tour. 

The president told reporters upon his return to Banjul from the first leg of the tour – as he took his break to observe the Christmas holiday- that the Gambian people have shown their appreciation.

He described his tour as “very successful because people came out in their numbers to welcome us with honour and dignity, but one thing was outstanding that people started appreciating what we are doing.”

“ [While] coming home today I think it was one of my biggest welcomes since I came to power. People welcomed me in large numbers and definitely I think I appreciate that. 

“It has touched my heart that Gambians are appreciating what we are doing.”

The president will resume the second leg on Monday in the Greater Banjul Area and is expected to complete the tour next week.
