The incumbent mayor of the Kanifing Municipal Council, Talib Bensouda, has pledged to support the youth of Black Market if he is re-elected.
” I am a young man myself, and I know that many people say that young people in the black market are criminals. However, I believe that this is a stereotype. When I visited the black market today, I saw nothing but hard-working young people who are simply trying to make a living. If I am elected back to office, I will prioritize the youth in the black market by providing them with the resources they need to succeed. I will help them find stores for their businesses, and I will provide them with small loans to expand their businesses. I believe that by investing in youth, we can create a better future for our country.” He promised
Talib Ahmed Bensouda also promised to renovate the Serekunda Market.
” The market is in need of rehabilitation. We will paint the market, install new CCTV cameras, and improve the lighting. This will make the market a more standard and attractive place to do business. I have a proven track record of delivering on my promises. If you elect me back to office, I will make sure that these improvements are made. I am confident that I will win on May 21st.” He said
