FTJ: Life better under Jammeh than Barrow

Friday, November 09, 2018

The leader of Alliance for Patriotic Re-orientation and Construction (APRC), FabakaryTombong Jatta, who is widely known as FTJ has said The Gambia is making no improvement as conditions under this current government are harder than when they were in charge.

He admitted that there has been an improvement in freedom of expression but said that was irrelevant when people live on empty stomachs.

He therefore challenged the president to be fully in charge of issues in the country like the former president was.

“I challenge him to be on top of issues. As a leader you must be on top. Gambians have voted for you to take responsibility of our country. You must ensure there is success; you must punish where there are failures.”

The APRC leader said he was baffled when the rehabilitation work done on Nusrat Road was cited as an example of the developments achieved by the Barrow government during the budget speech.

He said if anything is to go by current issues in the country, including developmental achievements his government presumed to have achieved, living conditions of ordinary people, high cost of living, shows he does not know what is happening or they are not giving him the right information.
