The former Vice President, Fatoumatta Jallow Tambajang, is the latest to congratulate President-elect Adama Barrow on his victory in Saturday’s polls.
But the former country’s No. 2 was quick to advise President Barrow to promote democracy, rule of law and respect for human rights.
“ Warmest congratulations and best wishes to His Excellency Adama Barrow and the National Peoples Party(NPP) for your victory on the 2021 Presidential Election. I pray that Allah SWT/God Almighty grant you and your family long and healthy lives. I also pray that He grants you all the needed support to successfully govern our beloved nation. As President and father of the nation, it is important that you focus on your agenda, namely, to promote democracy, rule of law, respect for human rights, gender equality, peace and shared prosperity.
As President and Father of the Nation, it is important that you urgently establish a national peace infrastructure focusing on effective social dialogue to facilitate the much needed national cohesion, sustainable peace and development.”
