GAMBIA: Over 3,000 Sierra Leoneans belonging to the Sierra Leone Nationals Union in the Gambia are poised come October 29th 2011 to officially launch the KEMOH FADIKA FAN CLUB (KFFC) in recognition of the High Commissioner’s interest, hard work and concern for the welfare of Sierra Leoneans in the Gambia. According, to John Sesay, the interim Chairman of the Sierra Leone Nationals Union Gambia, the general decision to form the Fan Club was based on their conviction that since assuming office High Commissioner Mohamed Kemoh Fadika has portrayed exceptional leadership and undivided interest and created an open door policy for all citizens totally void of politics. He said that the KFFC is non political and cut across board, with a constitution and has as its Motto:- Forward ever Backward never.
With regards the Aims and Objectives of the KFFC, he noted that it is to foster unity and mutual understanding among Sierra Leoneans in the Gambia and render moral and financial support to members and family in the event of death, accident, sickness and other related. Added to that he said is to promote good image of Sierra Leoneans in the Gambia, secure the image of the High Commissioner, High Commission and staff and offer charitable assistance to the needy. Membership is open to every Sierra Leonean residing in the Gambia but also includes Honorary Membership as non Sierra Leoneans who have contributed to the welfare of the Fan Club. When asked to comment on the formation and soon to be launched KFFC, The High Commissioner Mohamed Kemoh Fadika, had this to say “This is not my idea or making it is the sole wish of the majority of Sierra Leoneans here in the Gambia and I welcome it. This is the true spirit of citizens outside their country speaking with one big voice and living as a family” The event he informed will be filled with Pomp and Pageantry.
