Good morning to all of you.
After a long sleepless night for many of you waiting for the final results of the just concluded voting in the elections, I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for being patient and dedicated to our cause which is Gambia’s cause.
We believe in the end we will be victorious and have something to celebrate as a nation. With only 13 out of 53 constituencies being announced by the IEC so far we have a long way to go to conclude the process and a winner be declared.
We therefore urge all our supporters to continue to be patient and be rest assured of our diligence and vigilance on the entire process to its official conclusion. In due course UDP will hold a press briefing to inform all the stakeholders regarding the outcome of the elections.
Long Live UDP Long Live The Gambia
