About Baba

I am an Arabic Graduate from the well-known University of Al-Azhar in Arabic and Islamic Studies. I joined Al-Azhar, having completed my high school, in 1967. During my engagement in the university, I had the opportunity to pursue my English studies at the same university. Following my return to the Gambia, I served as a Teacher at the Government Schools for a couple of years. When the Government of the Gambia decided to establish the first Gambian Embassy in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, there was a need for a bilingual officer who is fluent in both English and Arabic. As a result, I was the successful candidate to serve as a Consular and Translation officer at the Embassy.

In 1994, I was appointed as Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary; accredited to 14 Gulf countries with residence in Riyadh, The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. I represented The Republic of The Gambia and presented letters of credence to the Heads of States and Kings of Sultanate of Oman, Kuwait, Iran, Ethiopia, Egypt, Turkey, Qatar, Bahrain etc. etc. as well as OUA (Organization of African Union) and OIC (Organization of Islamic Cooperation) with its headquarters in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

After my retirement, I have been serving as a Freelance Translator dealing with various international organizations. These include OUA/AU, The Islamic Development Bank Group (IDB) whose annual meeting was recently held in Jeddah, and The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to which I had been invited to participate in the 40th Anniversary of the foundation. The meeting was held from 22nd June to 26th June 2014.

I have an academic background in Arabic with over 40 years of experience teaching and working as a diplomat in various countries and organizations such as the African Union, UN, and the OIC.
