As part of his traditional Ramadan gift to his people, the National Assembly member for Banjul South Constitutency has donated bags of sugar to the people of his consitutency. Speaking in an interview at the presentation ceremony, at his residence in Banjul, Hon. Babucarr Nyang, stated that the donation has been ongoing for the past seven years. As Muslims entered the Holy month of Ramadan, he said, sugar is one of the most needed commodities in this Holy month. The donation, he said, is a tradition during the Holy month of Ramadan. "This is a token of appreciation to the people of my constituency," he added.

Hon. Nyang expressed delight in giving back to his people, saying he is here to serve the people, because they chose him to serve their interest.

Aji Fatou Bah, the APRC women mobiliser Banjul South, said the donation was not a surprise to them, adding that it has been a tradition. She reiterated that the donation shows that Hon. Nyang has love for the people of his constituency and has been giving a helping hand in other areas, including sponsoring sports in his constituency, among others. She commended Hon. Nyang for not being selfish, but pursued the interest of the people he represents. "Hon Nyang is not the only NAM in this country, but his style of leadership is quite exceptional, because he cares about the welfare of his people.

The vice-chairman of Banjul south constituency, Alhagi Ousman Joberteh, urged Hon Nyang to keep up the momentum, adding that they voted him into office and he has since been living up to expectations. According to him, this is what is expected from every good citizen. "We will continue to give you all the necessary support, because if you fail it's us who fail," he said.

Alhagie Monti Nyang, the constituency chairman of Banjul South, commended Hon Nyang for always standing by the people of his constituency, adding that he has not been running from his responsibility. "Over the years, we have seen him venturing into various areas from sport and culture," Nyang noted.
