The Constitution has given the media the responsibility to hold the government accountable to the people. It states in section 207 subsection (3) that, The press and other information  media shall at all times, befree to uphold the principles, provisions and objectives  of thisConstitution,  and the responsibil­ity and accountability of the Government to the people of The Gambia.”

Foroyaa will then find out what prevails on the ground and then take the concerns of the beneficiaries to the relevant ministry or authority.
