Gambia: Police Force Gives to JFP

The Gambia Police Force (GPF) on Wednesday donated 31 bags of farm produce, including 7 bags of groundnuts, 7 bags of coos, 11 bags of maize and 6 bags of rice to the Jammeh Foundation for Peace (JFP) at a presentation ceremony held at the Police Headquarters in Banjul.

Speaking at the presentation ceremony, chief superintendent Lala Camara of the Gambia Police Force, on behalf of the IGP, said the presentation of the farm produce to Jammeh Foundation for Peace is a routine initiative for the police. According to her, the 31 bags of farm produce donated to JFP are from the police farm and the police wives' farm which they got during the last rainy season.

Sulayman Badjie, the deputy chief executive officer at the Jammeh Foundation for Peace thanked the police for the gesture. According to him, JFP is here for everybody, and that it is a household name that works to contribute to the socio-economic development of the country. "We work in three key areas: health, education, and agriculture as well as enterprise development for young women and youths in general," he disclosed. Badjie promised that the farm produce will be handed over to the Presidential Alternative Treatment Programme (PATP) just like they did last year.

Chief Superintendent Madinding Fatty of The Gambia Police Force expressed similar sentiments.
