When Will The President Tour The Country?



According to media reports President Barrow has indicated that he has secured fertiliser and seeds for the farmers and very soon he will embark on a nationwide tour to hold discussions with farmers and see how best to help them.

Indeed, section 222 paragraph 15 of the Constitution states that,

The President shall undertake a nation-wide tour at least twice a year in order to familiarise himself or herself with current conditions and the effects of government policies.”

In short, the tour is not a political campaign but an opportunity for the President to listen to the farmers and see at first hand the effects of government policies. Foroyaa will be monitoring the tour.
