(JNews Mailbag) – May I take this opportunity to welcome what must be the most significant development in Senegalese/Gambian relations since the end of colonial rule.
The signing of the agreement for the Trans-Gambia Bridge linking the two-halves of Senegal, and at the same time providing the first physical link between the Senegambian family since separation by colonial rule, is a significant historical event.
It is my belief that the unity established between the two nations by the bridge would be far more practical, beneficial and permanent than what came out of the 1980s Confederacy Agreement.
I wish the project well and look forward to make the Dakar-Ziguinchor journey across the Senegambia Unity Bridge when it is completed (Inshallah).
Long Live the Entente-Cordiale!
