President Adama Barrow refuted claims made by opposition United Democratic Party (UDP) leader Ousainou Darboe that he lobbied funding for the construction of the recently inaugurated roads and bridges in the Upper River Region.
President Barrow was addressing thousands of supporters at a political rally in Sukuta on Saturday 16th October, 2021; a day after Jammeh disapproved the NPP-APRC Alliance.
While addressing NPP sympathizers Barrow contended that he solicited for the funding of roads and bridges project in URR, contrary to what Darboe said to Gambians in his nationwide tour. President Barrow maintained that the project was secured during one of his many trips to the People’s Republic of China.
Gambia’s Tourism and Culture Minister, Hamat N.K. Bah also took to the podium to slam Darboe and the UDP for being ‘bankrupt of ideas’ to offer to Gambians, as a result, they are resorting to misinforming the public.
The Gambia is at a crucial point to chose a leader that will steer the affairs of its people for the next five years on December 4th.
Heading to the polls, Gambians are expected to make a choice deeply engraved in development to enhance growth and socio-economic conditions. Political tensions flare up as we edge closer to election date; presidential hopefuls desperately crisscrossing the length and breadth of the country canvassing for votes.
