CHAIRMAN OF BRIKAMA AREA COUNCIL ALSO HISTORICALLY NOMINATED PERSON WITH DISABILITY AS COUNCILLOR

Following the trend of inclusion of Mayor of Kanifing Municipal Council, Mr. Talib Bensauda, Chairman of West Coast Region of The Gambia, Mr. Sherifoo Sonko also after the election of ward councillors through ballot boxes single handedly nominated a Person With Disability as Councillor who will represent Persons With Disabilities interests at the level of council.

This nomination is an authority vested in the Chairman in accordance with Local Government Act 2002. In consequence of the foregoing, the said chairman adopted equality and inclusion mechanism to nominate Mr. Edward Pereira whose natue of disability is an Amputee.
When I had caution to interview Mr. Pereira of his feelings of such a vital nomination as Counsellor, Mr. Pereira said the Chairman indeed took wise decision to do so which undoubtedly is a fulfilment of PWD’S right to employment.
Councillor Pereira urged in fact for such nominations to be increased for Persons With Disabilities to ease unemployment.
