The leader of the United Democratic Party (UDP), lawyer Ousainou Darboe addressing a large crowd in Basse, Upper River Region (URR), disclosed that a UDP government will upgrade the hospital in Basse and turn it into a major referral hospital that would serve the whole of the URR and beyond.

Darboe who was escorted by the people of URR from Sotuma Sire to Koba Kunda on Wednesday, said a UDP government will enhance the hospital and will make sure whatever they need at the hospital would be provided for them with immediate effect.

“We came up with that plan because having referral of a patient from Basse to Banjul is very far and risky. Why not we turn the hospital to a major one with absolute enhancement and improvement to serve the people of the region?” Darboe asked.

Darboe added that “We have very good and competent health practitioners in this country but what we lack is the medical equipment that would ease their work but a UDP government will make sure the equipment needed for them and medications are available for them”.

“We would make sure our doctors are highly motivated and would not consider resigning to move to the private sector. A UDP government will provide incentives for doctors as well as teachers to keep them in their respective areas of work.

“I urge you all to give your votes to the UDP so that we could realize all the good plans and agenda that we have for this country, especially for the youths and women.”

Independent candidate Marie Sock Jobarteh, who recently joined forces with the UDP, said “I joined UDP knowing that the party leader lawyer Ousainu Darboe has great and positive plans for The Gambia.”

According to her, “Darboe has big plans for our country. I stand for the women and youths knowing how much they are suffering and to totally eradicate the difficulties in this country, uniformly giving our votes to UDP on December 4th is the only way out”.

“There is no employment for the youths of this country and women are out there as well suffering for their children and families and to totally solve those problems are part of our primary objectives when we become a government.

“They accuse the youths of theft and being into drugs but have they ever asked themselves what is the cause of that. If there are no job opportunities created for the youths who are the future of this country, should they blame them for what they are accusing them of?” she queried.

Sock further urged the youths and women of The Gambia to massively vote for UDP if they truly love their country and need a system change for the happiness, tranquility and betterment of every Gambian.
