Today, we want to revisit Gambia’s failed vision 20-20 master plan, which was designed among other things to improve the living conditions ofÂ poverty stricken Gambians . “To transform The Gambia into a financial centre, a tourist paradise, a trading, export-oriented agricultural and manufacturing nation, thriving on free market policies and a vibrant private sector, sustained by a well-educated, trained, skilled, healthy, self-reliant and enterprising population and guaranteeing a well-balanced eco- system and a decent standard of living for one and all under a system of government based on the consent of the citizenry.” These were the exact words of President Yahya Jammeh when he formally launched the failed program in May of 1996. The realities on the ground today is the reverse. Almost, all sectors of development in the Gambia have collapsed, thanks to President Jammehâ€™s leadership shortcomings. Be it education, agriculture, tourism, trade and other developmental sectors have suffered a natural dead. The then junta led by Chairman Jammeh inherited sound economic and political policies from the deposed PPP administration, but in a span of six months what was known to beÂ the much talked about national cake had been hijacked by the coupists, who championed themselves as â€œSoldiers With A Difference.â€ Yes, they were soldiers with a difference since they have succeeded in wrecking our much cherished peace, economic and political stability under Sir Dawda Jawaraâ€™s government. Jammeh can be best remembered for bringing â€œwhite elephant projectsâ€ to our people without any serious or meaningful development over the years registered by this administration. These projects are not making any improvement on the lives ofÂ oppressed Gambians. Itâ€™s in fact an obstacle to development. Its objective wasÂ to lobby politicalÂ support baseÂ for the regime, which is increasingly becoming unpopular by the day.
