I Did Not Ask Barrow To Invite Intellectuals – Dr. Baba Galleh Jallow
Written By Baba Galleh Jallow
Recently, a small write up published on Freedom Newspaper calling on the Barrow administration to invite Gambian intellectuals back home has been circulating on social media, especially Face Book. The write-up has my name on the title and my photo on it. For that reason, a lot of people are contacting me and or commenting on the piece thinking that I wrote that piece. This is to clarify that I AM NOT THE AUTHOR OF THAT OPEN LETTER TO PRESIDENT BARROW ASKING HIM TO INVITE GAMBIAN INTELLECTUALS HOME.
I believe that the piece was written by Pa Girigara Njie because his name appeared at the bottom of the original piece on Freedom newspaper. While I do not mind him quoting me on the issue of education and development and very much appreciate Mr. Njie’s kind and thoughtful gesture in the service of our nation, I wish to make it clear that I did not write that letter to President Barrow asking him to invite Gambian intellectuals home. Thanks for understanding.
