GAMBIAN ECONOMIST AUTHORS ANOTHER BOOK
Sabally, who currently works as Budget Director at the Gambia’s Ministry of Finance and Economic Affairs, said the new book is a collection of inspirational essays that “is the culmination of more than ten years of writing.”
The essays cover a variety of material: self-help and motivational articles, commentaries on social issues, political discourse, and sports as well as his (Sabally’s) encounters with inspiring personalities like Barack Obama, drawing from their lessons for successful living.
Diverse as the subject matters may be, Sabally said they are all tied together in one thread and that is his desire to inspire individuals and society.
“Against the backdrop of a world of economic and financial turbulence, this book shows a path to a happy and successful life,” Sabally, who is also a motivational speaker, said. The book was published by Fulladu Publishers, a local publishing firm in the country.
Apart from his latest book, Sabally has authored and published three books, namely Jangi Jollof: A Memoir on The Gambia’s First University Programme; Secrets of The World Champions; and Instant Success: Ten Keys to Personal Achievement.
The young author promised to continue to write books and articles that inspire and motivate people.
Before his current appointment at the Ministry of Finance, he worked as Research Economist at the Central Bank of The Gambia from 1999 to 2009. He has a bachelor’s degree in Mathematics and a Masters in Economics.
