The Leader of the Opposition United Democratic Party, Lawyer Ousainou Darboe has said his party will seriously humiliate President Adama Barrow’s NPP in the December 4 Presidential elections.
“We will make sure that NPP is humiliated in this country and we will make sure that NPP does not compete with UDP in anyway in terms of ideas, policies or crowd pulling. They will never compete us. I am a modest and a humble person but who can compare me with Adama Barrow,” Darboe told thousands of party supporters and loyalists at his Kairaba Avenue residence early Friday morning where he was welcomed by a jubilant crowd from his Nationwide tour.
He said the party will embark on another tour in the next two weeks to ensure there’s no NPP in this country.
“Gambians we cannot make another mistake in electing that man, a man who goes to the UN and says on the one or 72 Seconds.’
He promised Gambians an educated, dedicated and knowledgeable leadership while urging party supporters to remain law abiding and to denounce violence in all forms.
The UDP leader who is set to file his nomination papers with the IEC on November 1, received a rousing welcome with tens of thousands of party supporters lining the streets from Brikama to his Pipeline residence on the Kairaba Avenue.
“I’m going to be nominated. We are doing preparatory acts for the nomination and I am happy to announce that the so-called reason why they believe Ousainou Darboe will not be nominated no longer holds. “I will tell you that I have on the 16th of October gotten my income tax clearance and in the next couple of days, I am going to prepare a declaration of my assets which I will submit to the IEC before the 1st of November, on my nomination date, so that those people who want to take objection, who want to go to court to challenge Ousainou Darboe’s nomination can do so”.
Gambians will head to polls on Dec 4 to elect a new president in the tiny West African country that is still healing from 22 years of a brutal dictatorship.
