It is a wonderful suggestion to replace Banjul as the capital of the Gambia. This is the only solution to the country’s disparities and population problem.

I hope the new government will take note of this excellent suggestion from a non-Gambian who seems to understand the Gambia more than some of the so-called noise-maker intellectuals like Halifa Sallah, Nyang Njie and others. Let us stop sleeping and come to terms with the realities of the 21st century. BANJUL IS NO LONGER FIT FOR A DECENT PLACE YOU MAY CALL A CAPITAL CITY. The facts are right in front of everyone to see. Dida Halake is right on point on his arguments.

Banjul being the capital city of the Gambia is one of the anomalies of the country. The same thing goes for Radio Gambia broadcasting from Banjul, not Bakau (remember the land that Radio Gambia is occupying belongs to Bakau not Banjul); Banjul International Airport, not Yundum International Airport (the land belongs to the people of Yundum, not Banjul); the Imam Ratib of Banjul does not represent all the imams in the Gambia, for he was not democratically elected by all the imams in the country; it was only Banjulians who voted him to office. We need to wake up now.
