I hereby announce that I have been elected to the position of President of the African Capital Cities Sustainability Forum (ACCSF) for the next 3 years. I wish to thank all the Mayors and Governors from the Capital Cities around the continent for their overwhelming support during the process of voting. My thanks and appreciation also go to the government and people of the Gambia for encouraging me to contest for the position. Special thanks must go to the Vice President Her Excellency Mayor Soham El Wardini of Dakar, Senegal and to the second Vice President His Excellency Mayor Mohamed Sadiki of Rabat, The Kingdom of Morocco for their support and acknowledgement. My gratitude goes to the people of Banjul for their unflinching support and prayers and also to the secretariat of the African Capital Cities Sustainability Forum for the organization of a hitch-free voting process. I also recognize the support from the UCLG Africa’s West Africa Regional Director with whom this would not have been possible. I promise to do my utmost best to ensure that I meet up with the expectations of the organization. I pray God grants us all the wisdom to move our organization from strength to strength. Thank you and may God bless and protect us all. Stay Safe.
