#StateHouseToday

Today at the State House in Banjul, President Adama Barrow received Tony Blair, former British Prime Minister, and the executive Chairman of the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change.

Speaking to the State House media team after a closed-door meeting, Mr. Blair expresses delight at working with the President in improving the capacity of the government to ensure it delivers for the people.

He said the government has key priority areas to deliver on, and the institute will bring in people that will work alongside people in The Gambia to accelerate the progress of the country. #DevelopGambia #NDP2021

This man is a War Criminal and The Gambia should have nothing to do with him and any organisation connected to or with him. He thinks he is some sort of Messiah figure who can dispense wisdom to the rest of us. He is toxic!

OP/291/249/01/PART III (101- ABS)
For immediate release
PRESS RELEASE

‘’President Barrow is clear about his priorities’’ – Tony Blair

State House, 11th September 2018 - After a closed-door meeting with His Excellency, President Adama Barrow, the Executive Chairman of the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change, Tony Blair - former British Prime Minister - told the State House media corps on Monday that he has never been more confident in the vision of the president to deliver on his promises to the Gambian people.

“Talking to the President, I think it is clear what those priorities are: electricity, agriculture, developing the seaport, making the Gambian tourism a key global attraction for tourists. These basically are what the government is focused on and they are able to do that with substantial international support,” he maintained.

After a difficult political history, Mr. Blair said that it is important that the government started with stabilizing the socioeconomic and political situation of the country. He explained that the recent donor conference in Brussels was a very important landmark because it sends a clear message from the international community that they appreciate the ongoing transformation in The Gambia.

The former British Prime Minister assured that his organization would continue to support the Barrow government in attaining the goals of its development blueprint, the National Development Plan (NDP), particularly the priority areas. Mr. Blair added that the task of his institute is to bring in experts that will work alongside government officials in The Gambia.

“We are very happy to be working with the President here in The Gambia, among a number of other countries in Africa, helping to improve the capacity of governments to deliver to their people. We help them deliver on the priorities of their government”, Mr. Blair said, noting that the country is making progress and doing well, in spite of the high expectations of the people on the government.

It is the third visit of the former British Prime Minister to The Gambia since President Barrow took office.

Former British Prime Minister, Tony Blair said his institute will support the administration of the Gambian President Adama Barrow in his priority areas outlined in the National Development Plan (NDP).

He told State House media corps that President Barrow is clear with his priorities, after a closed-door meeting at State House in Banjul on Monday.

Mr. Blair is on an official visit on behalf of his Tony Blair Institute for Global Change and he said, he has never been more confident in the vision of the president to deliver on his promises to the Gambian people.

“Talking to the President, I think it is clear what those priorities are: electricity, agriculture, developing the seaport, making the Gambian tourism a key global attraction for tourists. These basically are what the government is focused on and they are able to do that with substantial international support,” he said.

He hailed the Barrow administration for starting the process of stabilizing the socioeconomic and political situation of the country. He recalled the recent donor conference in Brussels saying it was a ‘very important landmark’ because it sends a clear message to the international community that they appreciate the ongoing transformation in The Gambia.

He assured of his organization’s support to the Barrow government in attaining the goals of its development blueprint, the National Development Plan (NDP), particularly the priority areas. Mr. Blair added that the task of his institute is to bring in experts that will work alongside government officials in The Gambia.

“We are very happy to be working with the President here in The Gambia, among a number of other countries in Africa, helping to improve the capacity of governments to deliver to their people. We help them deliver on the priorities of their government”, he said.

This is the third visit of the former British Prime Minister to The Gambia since President Barrow took office.

The Tony Blair Institute is designed to mobilise experts to assist the government supported to improve in service delivery.

In today’s world many former heads of state continue to make life out of office useful by establishing foundations which mobilise resources from endowments and other good Samaritans. It is important to bear in mind that such foundations and those who establish them have to satisfy certain criteria in order to be credible.

First and foremost they should be established not to further the policies of a particular head of state or their orientation in managing the affairs of countries. They should not be utilized to promote any personal agenda but should instead be designed to promote internally accepted development paradigm such as the sustainable development goals. Such foundations should also be monitored, assessed and evaluated by external assessors to determine whether they are fit for purpose. Foroyaa will monitor the type of support that the foundation will give and the objective of the support in order to assess the value of any intervention.
