The Assembly will hear an address by Her Excellency Isatu Ture, Vice President of the Republic of Gambia. May I request protocol to escort Her Excellency. I have great pleasure in welcoming the Vice President of the Republic of Gambia and invite her to address the General Assembly. Mr. President, Mr. Secretary General, Your Majesties, Distinguished Heads of State and Government, Ladies and Gentlemen. On behalf of His Excellency, President Adamo Baro, and the people of the Gambia, let me express our sincere gratitude to His Excellency, Ms. Maria Fernanda Espinoza Garces, for her excellent leadership during the 73rd session of the General Assembly. In a similar vein, Mr. President, the Gambia welcomes your presidency of the General Assembly with hope and excitement. Let me assure you of our unwavering support throughout your tenure. We also thank the Secretary General for his strong leadership and reform initiatives during one of the toughest periods when multilateralism is witnessing unprecedented assaults. Mr. President, allow me to seize this opportunity to extend to you warmest greetings and best wishes from His Excellency, Mr. Adamo Baro, President of the Republic of the Gambia, who would have loved to be here in person, but due to other state matters could not and has asked that I extend to you all his sincere apology and best wishes for a successful 74th session of the General Assembly. Today, I speak from this Assembly with a heavy heart. Fifty -four years ago, our Founding Father and First President, the late Alhadi Saadowda Kaira Baijawara, ushered the Gambia in as a member of the United Nations on 21 September 1965. He was a beloved leader, a Pan -Africanist, a statesman, a global citizen and a true champion of human rights and the rule of law. He dedicated his life to the search for peace around the world. We mourn the demise of this colossus of a human being and commit ourselves, as a government and people, to preserving and celebrating his enduring legacy. Mr. President, the theme that you have chosen for our general debate, galvanizing multilateral efforts for poverty eradication, quality education, climate action and inclusion is indeed very relevant for our times. In the light of the multiplicity of the challenges facing the international community today, we cannot afford the enormous cost associated with weak multilateral institutions or inadequate multilateral action. No country can single -handedly solve the challenges of global inequality, terrorism, or climate change. For those of us coming from the developing world, we strongly support the work of our multilateral institutions and efforts geared towards finding collective solutions to our development and security needs. As developing countries, most of our countries are in special situations that require special development plans which will benefit from initiatives, experiences, and best practices harnessed through South -South and triangular cooperation. Therefore, as we strive to attain the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030, let us collectively galvanize new resources, new efforts, and innovative ideas and approaches so that no one would be left behind. Mr. President, in The Gambia, we understand the critical difference multilateral efforts can make in transforming a society, tethering on the brink of despair, into one of hope and a model for emulation. The story of The New Gambia started in December 2016, when the people ushered in a new era of democracy, freedom, and the rule of law. As a government, we launched a plethora of reforms in governance, transitional justice, and prudent fiscal and economic management. Today, we can proudly report that our reforms are bearing fruit and yielding positive dividends. Our Constitutional Review Commission has concluded consultations with Gambians at home and abroad. For the first time in our history, we have a National Human Rights Commission to address human rights concerns of the people. As a result of a number of informed policy decisions and actions since the advent of the new government in 2017, The Gambia is back again as the human rights capital of Africa, and a small country with a big voice on matters of human rights in the continent and beyond. In the area of transitional justice, the Third Reconciliation and Reparations Commission, TRRC, is now functional and addressing past human rights violations of the former government with the active participation of victims and perpetrators. The TRRC has also consulted with the Gambian diaspora as an important constituency of our quest for inclusiveness and national reconciliation. With the setting up of the TRRC, and the revelations from the public hearings, Gambians have now awakened to the true extent of the crimes and egregious violations of human rights willfully committed by a government against its own people. Stories about egregious human rights violations, like extrajudicial killings, disappearances, rape, and torture remain mere stories until now. This is no longer the case thanks to the collaborative work that the international community is doing with the government today. In this connection, sustaining the ongoing collaboration and support will remain critical to the success of our efforts in instituting accountability for past crimes, generating a historic record for transitional justice in the Gambia, which in our view will contribute to healing, national reconciliation, and closure for the society at large.
