WHY THE INCREASING FREQUENCY OF REMOVAL AND REPLACEMENT OF TOP PUBLIC SERVANTS?

IS THIS OLD WINE IN NEW BOTTLES?

The removal of managing directors and other heads of public institutions and their replacement by others are now becoming rampant. Sometimes they are ‘invited’ to police stations for questioning. This is happening without explanation or the announcement of any policy directive.

Needless to say, we should be mindful of any window dressing. What Gambia needs today is not mere replacement of heads but change. We need to move away from the past and not repeat the errors of the past.

Foroyaa will find out the basis of removals and whether the procedure adopted is in accordance with Act governing the public institution.
